Circuit Bent Casio SK-1

“This Bent Casio is the most AWESOME Glitched Sampler/Keyboard I have owned. It was modified by that Master of Bending, Sam Peck. Sam has custom-made several Bent Devices for me but this one was from his own personal collection. It has SO many possibilities I have only just begun to tap it’s potential. For instance rather than have a somewhat limited Patch Cord Bay with a half-dozen patch cords, this Bending Matrix has no less than 29 THREE-POSITION TOGGLE SWITCHES!!! Plus 3 more Three-Position Toggles on the end of the Keyboard. Making a total of 32 Toggles!! It also has a very cool Pitch-Bend knob. And get this, IT IS ALSO MIDI-CAPABLE!! YOU CAN PLUG ANY MIDI-COMPLIANT INSTRUMENT INTO IT AS A CONTROLLER!! I have used this function many times, plugging this SK-1 into my KORG Karma Workstation and using it as a sound source. I haven’t seen many Bent Boards that can do that.

Like all Bent instruments it can be temperamental, a quality I’ve actually come to love. You never know what weird sound it’s going to throw at you on it’s own. The random Zen Element . . .this is something I really value as an assembler of weird, spontaneous sound events.

This Bent Casio SK-1 is a hardy little board that has been handled with TLC. Never Toured. Lives in my smoke-free home studio. I’m only selling it because I’m raising money for my Solo Blues Tour. That, and I know I can have Sam build me something similar in the future. Don’t miss out on this unique instrument!

It comes with an Universal AC Adapter (110) and also runs on 5 AA Batteries.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Keyboard functions normally if all switches are off.

Create incredibly strange sounds and beats.

Separate LFO circuit animates the sounds and sampled sounds for modulation.

An opto cell allows for theremin type of pitch work and total chaos in other patches.

It has an LED with ON/OFF switch that pulses and adds a modulating envelope glitch.

In addition, it has 9 bend switches that add strange modulations, algorithmic brain wave oscillations, insect emulations, whacked out drum beats, chaotic bass, syncopated rhythms, flanging, echoing, looping, the effects go on and on for incredible combinations only limited by your imagination.

A control knob on the front that allows you to dial out the drums.

It also comes with an ATARI joystick port and joystick that renders INCREDIBLE effects in each direction the joystick is moved as well as the button.

Also, there’s a pitch control knob with switch that allows you to choose between the original clock or a precission oscillator . This pitch knob greatly effects pitch several octaves.

There is a soft reset button and a balanced 1/4″ output jack.

Also included is a removable RCA patchbay module that plugs into the Atari jack when the joystick isn’t plugged in.

The onboard speaker is intact so you can use it on the go or anywhere you’d rather not drag your amplifier, a huge convenience factor.

*****I’m also throwing in a free optical theremin (shown mounted in beer can)*****” Click here to visit listing on eBay
