Combining multiple SK1s into FrankenSynth
« on: December 07, 2019, 08:26:12 PM »

Hi All, I recently acquired a second Casio SK1 to go along with my other relatively unbent SK1. My "new" SK1 has a few missing keys, and I am thinking of various solutions for dealing with that (other than just cannibalizing a third SK1 for its keys...) One thought I had is this:

Could I combine my 2 SK-1s together into a sort of "frankensynth," by splitting off from the ribbon cable that attaches to the keyboard? In other words, if I soldered extra wires to where the keyboard ribbon attaches to the main board, and then wired those in to the same spots on the second main board, would I be able to control both SK1s with a single keyboard? Obviously I can and will do some experimenting of my own, but I figured I would ask this question here first before diving in.

Has anyone experimented with this, or found other successful methods for combining two SK1s together? Thanks in advance for any info!
