Digitar | Casio Guitar, Hacked and Bent
The world’s first MIDI guitar, the Casio Digital Guitar – hacked and circuit bent by PMG – can now be part of your studio. Dig into the sound bank of the DG series and crank up your session with one of the stranger musical inventions of the ‘80s. Music tech of the ’80s runs the gamut from revolutionary digital synthesis to more experimental endeavors. The Casio Digital Guitar falls into the latter category and, although an oddball of music inventions we thought it cool and unique enough to create a sound pack. The Casio Digital Guitar is a stringed guitar which translates the performance to the onboard computer and plays back the selected sound. Puremagnetik sampled all of the on-board sounds and also took the Digital Guitar’s resources a step further by circuit-bending the device for more glitch-tastic programs. Puremagnetik created some feedback loops, tweaked with the clock and injected voltage in places it shouldn’t be!
