Casiotone is a serie of electronic keyboards developed by Casio in the 1980s. It was the first keys using a synthetic technique known as Vocal – consonant, to imitate the sounds of the instruments.
The Casio PT-1 was a toy, could not see another way, a small electric keyboard, two scales and a half in which you could not play chords. Also had a rhythm generator, with several patterns and accompaniments, and a small baffle incorporated. Casio PT family increased, and appeared Casiotone PT-10 and PT-20, mine, all with some innovation, particularly in the selection of instruments and rhythms.
Thanks to their low cost, abundance and the improvement of technology, many amateur bands used it. Lo-fi bands corresponding to Casiocore style claim now for the sound simple and without manipulation of the keyboard. Simply press “Samba” and that's it.
