  • Casio SK-1 [1985] (and breaking down sample rates)⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
A tiny, portable piano, the Casio SK-1 has 32 mini keys and four-note polyphony. It has a built-in microphone for sampling and a speaker. Referred to by Vintage Synth Explorer as “the poor man’s sampler”, one sample can be stored which automatically clears when the machine is turned off. It has a sampling bit depth of 8 bit PCM and a sample rate of 9.38 kHz.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
In effort to break down that last sentence, bit depth is the number of ‘bits’ of information in a sample. The more bits, the better something will sound. A CD for example has 16 bit audio. Whereas iTunes and DVD audio supports up to 24 bits.
⁣⁣⁣
A sample rate is the number of samples of audio carried per second, measured in Hz.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Hz or hertz is a unit that measures frequency. The “k” before Hz represents 1000 Hz. Using the SK-1 as an example, 9.38 kHz (kilohertz) equals 9,380 Hz (hertz).⁣⁣⁣
⁣
For most music applications, 44.1 kHz is a sample rate that is aimed for.
⁣
Getting back to the SK-1, the version above is a rare pink version. Most SK-1s you will find out in the wild are black. There is also a RadioShack version of the SK-1 called a “Realistic Concertmate 500”, which tends to sell for just a little cheaper than the black Casio version. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
You can find them for around $100 on the internet these days - but the pink one is hard to come by.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
All voices may be shaped by 13 preset envelopes, portamento, and vibrato. ⁣⁣⁣
