Product Overview

The K 101 is a lucky bag. Its main sound source are the vintage Casio CZ–101 keyboard, supplemented by a few sounds captured from a Casio PT-10. \r\n\r\nAll the sounds are incredibly warm and charming. \r\n\r\nYou can lose yourself just playing along the analog sounds, being inspired by its distinct character which is both warm and raw.

If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in K-101

Image supporting Details


K 101´s instrument design is based on 2 simultaneous sound slots, each can be feeded with one of 47 sound sources and has a separate volume and pan knob.

Beside that, the first slot provides an additional -12 to 12 semitones pitch knob.

We captured 47 individualy designed sounds of the original keyboards.

We recorded the whole keyrange in minor thirds, looped the sounds, processed them if needed and extended the key range to C0-C6.



In order to shape the final sound, K 101 provides plenty of sound options:

  • 3 EQ´s called „FILTER”, „A.FLT” and „HIFI”
  • Rotary, twang and distortion-fx
  • Reverb and delay
  • 2 different volume envelopes, called „PAD” and „SQR”

55 Presets

K 101 provides 55 presets which are covering a range of pianos, basses, pads, organs and fx-sounds.

To preserve your own presets simply save the patch under a different name on your harddrive.

A very special option is the "RNDM” function, which sets fx parameters, sound selections, volumes and panning by random.

This is pure fun and amazing to see what comes out in the end.

small format nostalgia

I’m not so sure about the whole “warm and analog” thing—I would describe these sounds as belonging to the “80’s home keyboard” variety—but this instrument is charming, I will give it that. So these, er, “classic” sounds are delivered in a dual-layer engine that might have knocked your socks off back in the day, but is actually rather limited. You can also choose from a couple envelope/eq/effect preset variations. The lack of tweakable controls feels somewhat fitting though, and it’s balanced by a nice number of preset sounds for the size of the package. Not very deep, but it is fun!
