So I found an old tape recorder in my house with a tape inside, and I decided to see if it could record my keyboard, and it did. So I recorded a short song over whatever was on it previously and came up with this dark ambient track. It gave me the feeling of some kind of tape you'd find in the attic of an old abandoned house in the middle of the woods. Tel me what you guys think of it.

I'm really digging the sound, the melody is quite haunting. Depending on what direction you want to go in, a reverb unit could add some more atmosphere to the lower volume range and smooth off that old keyboard sound, though I take it the harsh keyboard on tape is part of the impact.

Whoa, this is awesome...I'm not sure if I would change it at all. Reverb might be cool, but I feel like other things might get a little buried behind it.
