"Incredibly Rare Circuit Bent Instrument - Casio SK1!!!

This one is an augmented machine, different than many circuit bent instruments. Whether you want to use it to make experimental music, sound design, electronic music etc, this instrument provides you with a huge palette of sounds due to the many hard patched glitches, pitch control and particularly thanks to the coloured patch bay in the breakout control box. Here you can also patch ROM points to 4 LFOs (!!!!) in order to create patterns and rhytmic phrases. There is also a programmable sequencer, based on logic chips, which runs in two directions and has some degree of variations in it.

It features:
- Pitch control (with LFO to have vibrato) - Body Contacts - Many Glitches on the main keyboard (these glitches short pins on the ROM board of the keyboard, distorting and originating new sounds/patches) - Patchbay with ROM points, Ground, 4 modulating LFOs
Step Sequencer
- 8 adjustable steps - 1 knob for sequence tempo and a switch to increase speed - Switch to run backwards - 6 switches to create different sequence patterns - input for external clock for the sequencer (not tested)
PSU is not included in this listing."
