Bought this new years ago. It's an MT-65 with a different colour of garnish. That said it has to be one of the funkiest keebeez ever. I absolutely loved it because of the quality and quantity of features, and it was cheap well built and dear I say it, handsome. It held its own against a lot of the so called professional machines of the time. I suppose if your looking for some cheez or analogue type sounds in your mix then it's perfect. They're going for high prices on ebay and I would certainly call this vintage / collectable. Wish I never sold mine now. HINT: Put it through ouboard FX...

A very great CASIO keyboard with great cheesy sounds! Arpeggiator is fine. The MT-68 works great for having unique sounds in your compositions or live performance. If you see one, don't think twice - get it!!!

This is really a very good synth thing. The sounds are way above other Casio stuff of its age. Quite rich and funky, in fact. The drum sounds are pure cheese. Good arpeggio section. It has reverb which sounds really good. It's well built. The switches stick over time, but can be got working with a clean up. Definitely worth seeking out. I would imagine that boot sales and garage sales are your only option, nowadays. With the VL-1, PT30 and SK range, this is the best of the bunch. A really good analogue sound. It looks retro and real funky. You will be very surprised when you first switch it on and make it sing. This is not a toy.

I utilized the venerable casio MT-68 for most of the tunes on my new CD "So Far, So Almost." Using a 20-year-old instrument such as this in the 21st Century is like having a time machine at your disposal. The sounds can be cheesy and odd, but this worked well for the type of music I wrote with it. Hard to play well because of the tiny keys, but solidly built and very user-friendly, this old-timer makes me nostalgic for the simpler keyboards of the 80's. And yes, it sounds surprisingly good when amped. I invite you to listen to my online music and hear what I was able to achieve with this little guy.

I found my MT68 in the back of a local pawn shop about 3 months ago. The guy wanted $20.00 (US) for it but since the batteries had leaked and he didn't have an adaptor i could test it out with he let me have it for $15.00 (US)... which was a fair deal for this keyboard i'd say.

The MT68 looks very inviting and fun to play (which it is) with all it's knobs, sliders and push buttons. It is solidly constructed and has a very warm analogue sound; sounds huge through an amp. It does have some tweakability with vibrato, delayed vibrato, sustain, reverb and two buttons that affect the envelope of each sound. Familiar Casio Chord functions are there although there are four different settings each for bass, chord and arpeggio (plus arpeggio on/off). These are basically different patterns the auto accompaniment can play in Casio Chord mode.

Of course the hallmark of the MT68 is the amazing analogue drum section. Very phat with a punch you just don't get from later Casio- samples well too.
