Never thought I'd come to /mu/ for anything, much less advice, but I dunno where to start.
So today I got this old keyboard from my uncle today. It's a Yamaha PSR-500, made in 1991. Not that it matters, but it's been in my family for AT LEAST 15 years. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he bought it brand new. Anyway, the pic is the same keyboard. It has 100 old-school sounding MIDI instruments, 12 track memory settings, a pitch altering switch, and a bunch of other features I don't know shit about.
Now, here's the idea: I wanna make music with it. Like a bunch of weird onestop.mid-type shit, maybe some video game inspired music since it sounds like an oversized Nintendo 64. But like I said, I have no idea where to start. I found some USB to MIDI interface devices for pretty cheap, but I don't know if I need anything else.
TL;DR -- I want /mu/ to help me be a shitty Grant Kirkhope impersonator.

There's a few different ways you could record, I personally would just get a cheap audio interface and plug the yamaha into an xlr input. There's other ways you can go about it, but that's just what I would do. Good luck op.

I bought a Fulltone OCD overdrive pedal the other day brand new and it isn't working? I have a Vox AC15 and the fucker won't even turn on? It sure as hell isn't the way I connected it.
I'm so happy
We've had such an awesome week for music. BP, The Colour In Anything and AMSP. It makes me very optimistic for what's in store and I'm glad to be alive right now. That being said, discuss your favorite thing that came out this week.
That's good, OP. I feel happy for you :)
Why is this song so good? I listen to it every night before I sleep cos it's so chill.
Anyone have more stuff like it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqWcCJKVHhk
The night is /dark/ and full of horrors! It's time for another /dark/ thread: Industrial, Gothic Rock, Dark Synthpop and Witch House all welcome!
Figured someone might know what I'm talking about. There's this guy who created an ambient album in chernobyl, rang the album through certain places like a swimming pool or a hospital, then recorded it again. It was real spooky and I cannot for the life of me find it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
>The Sun has fallen out of orbit and is going to crash into the Earth. Humanity has randomly chosen people to enter an underground nuclear shelter with enough food and provisions for the next 50 years until the Earth is habitable again, luckily you were picked.
>You are allowed to bring three non-compilation albums with you.
Which ones do you choose?
>the sun is going to crash into the earth
>for the next 50 years until the earth is habitable again
>Oasis: Whats The Story Morning Glory
>Radiohead: OK Computer
>Coldplay: A Rush Of Blood To The Head
But I'll download music on my phone 2bh before that.
also the sun would destroy the earth
I know the dude died and everything but I'm sorry this shit is straight garbage. Shit bars + shit beats + obnoxious repetition = the worst album I've heard in a very long time.
Heres an ancient chart of mine

Of these three albums, which would be best to kill myself to?
I listened to Medúlla and I fell in love with Björk.
I need the cure, fast.
