Amstrad Fidelity CKX100 vintage keyboard demo - "Tin Vibe”


Published on Jun 23, 2019 Alfonse

"Amstrad Fidelity CKX100 Computerphonic keyboard (1988)

Well, who knew Lord Sugar made a keyboard...? All the sounds you hear in the track were made using the CKX100 and recorded to a DAW, where I added compression, EQ, reverb, delay and some light chorus as required. I sampled individual drum hits from slowed-down CKX100 rhythms, to allow me to build fresh beats, rather than using the rhythms found on the CKX100 itself.

The aim of this video series is to try to get big sounds from small retro keyboards with a little help from current production tools. The Amstrad is a quirky little 8-bit machine, with sounds coming from a ROM; my personal favourite patches are Guitar (nothing like one, but that's hardly unusual) and Synth 2, which plays the bassline in this track.
