The Casio HT-700 is a consumer level Synthesizer that featured Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) Synthesis, with a real Voltage Controlled Filter that could be programmed to sound like a professional sounding Synthesizer. The Casio HT series of Keyboards was the easiest and most affordable solution for anyone interested in learning how to program Synthesizers, and learn the methods of sound design, using the basic fundamentals of all Synthesizer routing’s like Oscillator to Filter to Amplifier connections. Although the HT-700 includes a MIDI in and MIDI out port, it is incapable of sending, or receiving System Exclusive Data. It is due to this design that I can only offer sounds for the HT-700 using custom designed Synthesizer Data Sheets. Printable, and ready to use, the Data Sheets included in this package give this consumer level keyboard a professional sound.
