PSS-270: Utsuro-bune (MS-003 toy-keyboard)

By PSS-270 on Jan 30, 2019 10:29 pm

Composed in 2019.
I made this song using as the only instruments' source a very low-tek toy-keyboard: MS-003 (also called Music Fairy, hehehe).
It's an extremely cheap and extremely plastic machine (also in its sound :-P ).
It is actually sooo low-tek, that it has no headphones output! Hence I had to sample sounds via microphone - later I used  MilkyTracker as a sequencer.
Cannot play by hand this time, as the keyboard's clicks would be audible. But MilkyTracker does do the job perfectly.

I recorded all the instruments + some loops, noise-gated them, normalized - and so on.
The toy-keyboard has no bass (at least not for the user to play with), so I had to sample the lowest possible note of the guitar and later I used it here as the bass :-) ).

Also - actually I always wanted to try this method of using toy-keyboards - to sample those lo-fi instruments and put them into some normal, modern sequencer.

Btw, the toy was a Christmas gift from my girlfriend, haha! ;-) Thanks!! big_smile

OK then, enjoy the casio-core Utsuro-bune adventure. :-)
