YES! This was my first keyboard. Warm mid-80s memories of sorting out how to play depeche mode and prince tunes on it!
Demo sounds pretty great. Though it adds a multi-mode filter, seems a shame to not have the original graphic EQ.
we’ve come FULL CIRCLE
Why would people having access to all the fantastic synths of today want the crappy sounds their parents could just afford because a DX7 was a month salary? We didn’t enjoy the cheap Casios so much in the 80s, we played them dreaming of the real good sounds of the synths we could only dream of.
one little toy casio sound in amongst a lush synth production can really stand out and make all the difference you should try it
Thanks to you and others for sharing the URL. We’ve updated the post to fix this!
