Skatik is a collection of instruments, sound effects, percussion kits and looped digital freak-outs from a heavily circuit bent Casio SK-5.
The most interesting on-board sounds have been multi-sampled and then recorded in circuit bent variations. The system sampling engine was exploited for it's lo-fi specification (8bit/9khz) and then under-powered to create exceptionally textured sound effects and percussion kits. At one point during Puremagnetik's modifications we unlocked a mysterious tweak that caused the internal SK-5 sequences to re-arrange themselves randomly and to loop irregularly. These bizarre tonal oddities have been meticulously looped and programmed into three large instruments for endless experimentation.
