26 Mods, Upright Oak Frame (built for Pascal Gabriel)
The Casio MT-65 and 68 is a classic 1980's home keyboard, with analogue sounds. It has the instantly-recognizable Casio accompaniments section, with optional chords and a good selection of slightly cheesy rhythms. The drum sounds are lo-fi but pleasing. It also has a pair of buttons which allow to to choose between voice envelope variations.

We have been circuit-bending the MT-65/68 since 2008. It responds incredibly well to modification, and we have chosen the best selection of mods we could find. Most, if not all, mods are to the rhythm and accompaniment section, as the voices already have an envelope variation that can be selected.

We have included a full list below, but new filters for chords, bass, arpeggio and drums are available, plus muting of most individual parts. The filters allow this home keyboard to make some serious and menacing sounds, especially when switching in the feedback controls - but used in moderation, the keyboard can also sound quite dreamy and is great for soundscapes.

The photo below is a one-off red panel MT-65 which we built for machine #1000.

See below for videos of the 26 mod & 16 mod versions.
