Bontempi Minstrel Alfa
A super-simple keyboard from the early 80s with analogue drums and squarewave voices.

Bontempi Minstrel Alfa HB402 keyboard (1983)

I sampled the piano voice and played it as a virtual instrument in order to access lower notes than are possible on the Minstrel keyboard itself - otherwise these tunes end up being a bit heavy on the upper-mids. Individual drum hits were sampled and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the Minstrel.

This track is tucked away at the end of the ALF album.
