My old MIDI keyboard still works!

I’ve never made music for a video game before. Actually, I haven’t really made any recording that’ve been used for something “real”.

However, I’ve been playing in a cover band for years so I’m pretty comfortable behind a set of black and white keys.

So as part of my LD warm up I went down in my basement to get my old midi keyboard. I plugged it in and to my surprise it still worked! Well, sort of… Most keys didn’t work, but I had at least 1,5 octave at the upper end of the keyboard that worked. Luckily, the transpose buttons still worked 😉

Well, this is what came out.

It’s not great, I know. But good enough considering I made it in two hours in the middle of the night on a partly functioning keyboard and without any experience in GarageBand.

What kind of audio do you expect/hope to add to your game? Depending on my game idea, I consider making sound effects with my voice :)
