#1

Out of curiosity, what, if anything, do ya’ll listen to when you are working on your keyboard projects?

I have noticed that I tend to play the Kung Fury soundtrack when I’m working on keyboard builds.


#2

Usually I listen to either Kamasi Washington or Harvey Sutherland! They’re my two favourite (albeit quite different) artists to listen to while I’m working on something.


#3

usually some sort of metal or hard rock, but from time to time I listen to a bit of meganeko, FantomenK, Tras80 or some mix of ska punk.


#4

Mostly Netflix, something I already watched or one of my favorite movies so I don’t have to pay attention to the screen :slight_smile:


#5

Mainly chillhop and fighting game live-streams.


#6

Usually vinyl (any genre) if what I’m doing allows me to get up to flip it every 15 minutes. If not I’ll throw on a stream/VOD of a build or keyboard chores from the usual suspects


#7

Usually music. Sometimes jazz or synthwave.


#8

Mostly music.
I’m a music kinda guy so that’s what I use.


#9

Jazz, lo fi hip hop, anime music, electronic, and various mixes of each of these genres and their respective subgenres.


#10

Always end up listening to audiobooks, somehow.


#11

Soundcloud rap always


#12

Erm. Mostly topClack keyboard chores or jaekeebs!


#13

Very interesting mix. Do you all put something on as background noise to help you concentrate or to kill the monotony of say, lubing switches?


#14

For most things, I’ll have a YouTube video playing. Look for long ones, 10-45 minutes, that way I don’t have to go looking for the next one.

For desoldering, mostly I just listen to myself swear off ever desoldering again mixed in with a string of profanities.

Anything by Ryan Dorin (https://ratboygenius.bandcamp.com/)


#16

Audio books or some metal.


#17

lo-fi hip-hop beats to relax/study to


#18

Guardians of the galaxy vol.1 & vol.2 - BSO


#19

Man, do I love the Outrun genre, and the Kung Fury soundtrack in particular. Very appropriate for keyboard messing-around, in my opinion. If you have Spotify, here is a playlist of similar (slightly less tongue-in-cheek) music that I quite enjoy.

Sweet, I will check out that playlist. My SO thinks Kung Fury is stupid, but she admits the soundtrack is A1. It’s easily one of my favorite soundtracks.
