The Casio MT-68 was a very affordable analog synthesizer sold in the 80’s that had minature keys, 20 preset sounds and a rhythm section with auto accompaniment. It can be heard on various recordings and has an interesting 80’s or ‘retro’ sound. If you grew up with this synthesizer and wished you could hear it again, here is a chance to play it once more in Kontakt 5 and SFZ format.

SFZ is an open format and sfz sample players that fully support this library are available for current computer platforms.  See the link below to install a free sfz player.

Great care was taken to record the MT68 with the best equipment and minimal processing so the original sound and character is preserved. All notes and beats were sampled and looped to offer the most complete virtual version of this classic synth for years to come. This was my first synthesizer, and I offer it’s sounds to my friends and fellow musicians who might be as fond of it as I am.

    This was also my first keyboard, way back in 1984! Aside from no auto-accompaniment, which I imagine would have been a scripting nightmare, this library is a dead-on sounding representation of the original instrument I used to record demos with on my Yorx boombox back in the day! Having it in Kontakt 5 format alongside my $1,200 orchestral libraries is both extremely wrong and somehow perfect! Thanks for this amazing gift!
