Circuit Bent Casio SK-5 Sampled

Puremagnetik releases Skatik for Ableton Live, Kontakt and Logic      21/11/12

Circuit Bent Casio SK-5 Sampled


Skatik is a collection of instruments, sound effects, percussion kits and looped digital freak-outs sourced from a heavily circuit bent Casio SK-5.

Puremagnetik tells us that the most interesting on-board sounds have been multi-sampled and then recorded in circuit bent variations. They say that the system sampling engine was exploited for it's lo-fi specification (8bit/9khz) and then under-powered to create exceptionally textured sound effects and percussion kits. At one point during Puremagnetik's modifications they unlocked a mysterious tweak that caused the internal SK-5 sequences to re-arrange themselves randomly and to loop irregularly. They tell us that these bizarre tonal oddities have been meticulously looped and programmed into three large instruments for endless experimentation.
