DecentSamples have released Casio PT-10, available as a FREE download for a limited time.
The Casio PT-10 is a match made in lofi heaven: the vintage charm of a Casio PT-10 captured on microcassette.
A viewer named Hamza contacted DecentSampler from Germany. He had just bought a Casio PT-10 at a flea market and thought I would enjoy it; he wanted to send it to me. Thus began the love affair with this tiny plastic keyboard.
Released in 1987, the Casio PT-10 is a little brother to the famous Casio VL-1 from 1979. It’s an incredibly simple keyboard which just four sounds – flute, fantasy, piano, and violin – all of which are in included in this library.
To make this library, DecentSamples installed a hardware output on the back of the keyboard. They then captured the raw output from the PT-10 using an old dictaphone. This microcassette recorder’s warbly sound adds additional charm to these already nostalgic sounds. You’ll notice that each presets comes in both mono and stereo versions. The stereo versions were created of two recordings: one for the left channel and one for the right.

The sample library requires the free Decent Sampler player plugin, available to PC, Mac and iOS users. Download it HERE.
