CasioTron Beats: Retro Drums

CasioTron Beats: Retro Drums

Rob Wilmot

CasioTron Beats re-creates the rhythm patterns found on the vintage home keyboards of the 70's and 80's. These popular keyboards were analog and have now become collector's items because of their warm sound.
With MIDI and Ableton Link too! You can synchronize your analog casio-tron drum machine to any USB compliant MIDI device or virtual MIDI port. Or you can use Ableton Link for its improved precision timing.
This particular version takes the analogue drum sounds from the then Casiotone keyboards more specifically this one form the vintage Casiotone MT-70 which although was more modern than the earlier models, it was still analogue as you will be able to tell from the sound which includes the slight noise and hiss as it ducks (this is a genuine replication).
Remember those bossa-nova and samba beats? Well here they are! Relive the retro sound and those cheesy 80s rhythm beats.

so connect to midi just press the new MIDI options button then detect your device and sync.
You can also trigger from MIDI key
To connect Ableton Link just enable it. With the enabled, MIDI sync is disabled, even if you turn it on.
