These are all the synth used by concertmate during improvisations.

- Realistic Concertmate-450
One of the fav synth of the Concertmate’s members. It appears on most of the band’s tracks. It has some awesome and weird presets (“Wha Voice #62”, “Snare Drum #42”, “Cosmic Sound #75). This sounds bank is the basic one of almost all the Casio toy synths, even for the most recent ones.

- Realistic Concertmate-650
Also a fav for Concertmate. This synth doesn’t have so much sounds (only 10) but they’re all warm, nice & fun (especially the "Dog" sound). It has also an integrated mic linked to a sort of a sampler/recorder that sounds great.

- Casiotone MT-520
A very good one. The drums presets sound great and offer many possibilities. For each rhythm preset, you can assign 3 different parts to each of the separated element (bass drum, snare, hihat, cymbal and percussion). You can also choose to play the drum by yourself in real time with the pad. 12 sounds are available. Each of them is strongly warm. The auto-accompaniment mode is nicely absurd, especially the bass lines.

- Casio CTK-330
This is one of the most recent synth used by concertmate. Sounds good, even if the sounds are a bit too “clean”.

- Elka Solist 505
This monophonic synth is quality. The sounds are quite sharp, and the integrated parameters enable you to create your own sounds.

- Intercontinental Piano 7
This electric keyboard sounds like a kind of mix between a rhodes, a piano and a harpsichord. Warm sound and deep touch.

- Yamaha CS1x
This synth is a bit too “perfected” to be a real part of the Concertmate’s synth list. However, it has been used sometimes, like for the
"live Instants Chavirés 31-11-2002" by noak katoi. So it has to be mentioned. The sound lacks dirtiness and originality, even if it depends on how it’s used. Technoid more than Concertmetian…

- Akai X7000
A one-sound-sampler-synth : a beautiful sine wave with a large range. The bass octave sound is damn nice and deep.
