How to add Getlofi LTC1799 to Casio Sk-1

by Spunkytoofers

I’ve gotten several requests on how to hook up the Casio Sk-1 with a Getlofi1799 Oscillator so I’ve quickly drawn up a diagram for hookups. According to other sources the clock input can be directly injected without cutting the trace. That may be possible but there are bootup problems if the clock isn’t at it’s original setting so you may need to add a switch regardless. The note about the optional 500 ohm resistor is only if you notice your sk-1 is now out of tune for wiring to the clock lines. this should drop pitch to a range where you can fine tune the keyboard back to A=440.  Access to the fine tuning is available thru the bottom plate of the sk-1.  Click thru on the pictures to get an exploded view of the diagram.
