Casio Casiotone CT-S1000V

I Hear Voices

Remember the talk box? Or the vocoder? The folks at Casio do, and they’re bringing that voice-activation technology into the 21st century with their new Casiotone CT-S1000V. Just type some words into the keyboard’s companion app and select one of 22 Vocalist types (including simulations of the two gadgets mentioned previously). You can set phrases to be played all at once, according to a set rhythm, or one syllable at a time, and you can sequence them together. That’s in addition to everything else the CT-S1000V’s got, including 800 hi-res sounds, 100 DSP effects, and the ability to sample up to 10 seconds of audio.
