Does my Realistic Concertmate-500 count? It's an SK-1 clone produced at the same time & sold by Radioshack. It's identical in every way excapt the button colours are a little more muted.
See You In The Shadows…
@elesimo Jan 23
Yeaaaah, I love this! I'll use my SK-1!
@gardeningangel1 Jan 23
CT700 has been bailed out of storage and is raring to go. Curb scored an ironing board that works great as a stand.
@standup Jan 23
SK-1 is an amazing device. I’ll try to do some casiocore this year.
@zecoop Jan 23
I am 100% in for this every year. I have a wonderful collection of $5 Casio and Yamaha PSS keyboards. A lot of the time they go through my guitar pedals, but they also are released into the wild on their own too. 😀
@yam655 Jan 23
Hmm... Maybe I'll try this with someone else's Casio.
@yam655 Jan 23
I had some problems finding a Casio VST that wasn't 32-bits.
It's a VL-1, but it's a Casio, it's free, and it's 64-bit, which is what I was looking for.
@gubna Jan 23
I have a Casio PT-80. It was my first instrument, although the version I have I bought on eBay. The original one had been gone for years. I’ve always wanted to try to make a song or album with it.
@cynthiawolff Jan 23
I have been known to use mine on occasion..
@wobbiewobbit Jan 23
Casiotone MT-100 raring to go here 😀
@cts Jan 23
This is a thing?!? I've been around the community for a hot minute and how come I'm only hearing about this now? I do have an actual Casio keyboard, but it's in storage with a good deal of my other gear. Here's hoping I can get to it today and make something happen in February.
@oddbod Jan 23
All locked, loaded and ready to go
@vomvorton Jan 23
I have a couple that I use a lot - an MT-65 (high five to @oddbod) and a Realistic Concertmate-650 (which is a rebadged Casio SK5).
Several others that have all gotten FAWM use in the past though:
Casio DM-100 (two tiered keyboard, it looks a lot cooler than it sounds!)
Casio DG-10 (digital guitar!)
Yamaha SHS-10 (keytar!)

@w1n Jan 23
I have several Casio's in the studio
The classic VL1, and the Rapman RP-1, and a couple of circuit bent ones are some highlights
But my personal favorite is the weird SK8a, with belly dance rhythms and arabic scales settings.
Have also have some Yamaha PSS models.
Doubt I will make a song with only Casio's/Yamaha sounds, but they will absolutely show up on some tunes.
@zecoop Jan 23
Nearly all of these were $5-10. I don't have a problem. 😉
MT-41 (one of my all-time favs)
CT-360 (some great sounds)
PSS-170 (all-time favorite)
PSS-470 (another fav)
I do try to use them all at some point, as a lot of them have unique things to offer. 😀
@yam655 Jan 24
I experimented a little with that last VST I mentioned. I think it will do the job nicely, I just need to decide how I want my voice processed to go along with it now.
@gubna Feb 2
That was fun making, although the bass part I had to chop up to make it work with the drum sample. It''s pretty simple. I had added some vocals to it with a bit crusher pedal, but I think it sounded better as just an instrumental. The droning thing going on is a sample I timestreched. I dropped different samples into both my microsampler and fantom X6.
I made some more samples so I may have another one later if I get around to it.
@gardeningangel1 Feb 3
I would like to thank this challenge for saving me from adding way too many extraneous instruments to this song. Since my little PA stopped working I have no way to monitor the casio while recording (without using a mic and getting clicky key noises) so I recorded the part on the internal memory and recorded two playbacks using different tones. I'm happy with how it turned out.
@elesimo Feb 4
(Wrong thread, sorry.)
@emkaydeebee Feb 5
So I totally did this the other day, without appreciating how much of a thing this is! I was actually doing it for the right-to-reply challenge, and I wrote "When we're nearly 65" (in reply to the Beatles' "When I'm 64). It was a lot of fun, but a heck of a lot of work too! Recorded on a Casio SA-46 - bought for all of £2 a couple of years ago! https://piano-keyboard-reviews.com/brands/casio-keyboards/sa-46-rev...
Here's the song:
@berni1954 Feb 20
Just found this challenge and dug out my SK-1... Only to find it has given up the ghost. I was saving it for its "vintage" value too. 😢
@berni1954 Feb 23
As I explained above, my SK1 has been silenced... so I hope you will accept an entry on an equally cheesy sounding the Yamaha SH1 (never used the onboard sounds before. I only ever used to use it as a "Keytar".)
Anyway, here is a cheesy blues played on a cheesy keyboard and sung by a cheesy drag queen (my alter-ego) 😜
@calumcarlyle Feb 27
Great work, folks. I haven't managed to do one of these this time actually, but I will try to play some of these on the Offbeat show next week.
