Sleep Tight

I got Casio SA-46 for my birthday and it's a lot of fun. Here's a track that uses it. Excuse my sloppy playing

Organic, not sloppy. Nicely done.

Lovely tones. Well done.

Lovely contrast between round bass and crisp guitar.

Very nice. Enjoyed it.

This is excellent. Is all the sounds are from this dinky keyboard? I like the green color scheme though, but I hate to just look at the chart with all the sounds and rhythms that Casio is known for YUCK.

Oh wow, fantastic song. So dreamy heart

Like others have said, lovely, dreamy. I'm a big fan of cheap keyboard sounds! I have an old cheap yamaha keyboard with some great sounds on it.

Thanks! The beginning and the ending is pretty much all Casio (except for that horn/something, which is FMDrive), and there are other parts on background throughout the song. The sounds are actually quite decent, especially if you throw some chorus & delay on them big_smile

Thanks! That's cool smile I feel that there's something intimate about them, probably the overall quality of the samples and the subtle digital scrunch on them. Also with tiny ones you can play stuff while lying in bed which is always nice big_smile

It says "Mini keys! Big Fun!" on the box and it's true big_smile! Build is very nice too. I wish I had a midi controller with the same keybed (I have an akai mpk mini on my desk and it sucks in comparison, too stiff and linear, casio is so much more fun to play)

Great production, and a great song! I already am sleepy, and this song gives the perfect vibe to just stare out the window and look at the night sky.

Also, I rewinded at least three times to hear that crushed swell at the end. It's rich!

That sudden guitar was a nice touch.

Pretty beautiful nightime touches. Vaguely 80s though it sounds like its own thing. More awesome to hear the touch you give to the Casio samples...
