Casio Computers, founded in the 1940s in Tokyo, is well known for manufacturing high-quality electronic keyboards. Casio has long been the leader in innovation in electronic instruments, releasing the famous Casiotone keyboard in 1980. Recording with Casio keyboards is often simple but requires an understanding of the keyboard's functions. The CK 800 is one of the most common models.
