Here is a quick visual tour of the podcast keyboard.
This is a hole round the back of the keyboard where all the electric goes. If electric doesn’t go in the hole round the back, no jingles come out round the front. I refer to this part of the keyboard as the ‘electric hole’.
Like the electric hole, this part of the keyboard is important to the overall function of the machine. These are the ‘keys’ and without them it would just be a board. They are like long buttons. Notice the letter stickers on the keys? I have no idea what they are for. I think it’s some sort of secret code the kids have devised. The imagination of youth is a wonderful thing!
Don’t know what any of these buttons do, but one of them looks like a big smile with white cheeks, so it’s one of my top three favourite buttons on this keyboard.
More buttons. I do know what these do, but it’s pretty technical, so I won’t go into it now. I enjoy pressing them.
This electronic display displays electronically what is currently going on. Currently what is going on with the keyboard is ‘GrandPno’. ‘Pno’ is short for ‘Piano’ but they fucked up the display and couldn’t fit all the letters on, so compromises had to be made. And that meant spelling ‘Piano’ as ‘Pno’.
This is the button that makes chicken noises happen. I call it the ‘chicken button’.
Finally, this is the speaker. It’s where all the jingles and chicken noises come out of.
And that’s about all there is to know about the podcast keyboard. I hope you enjoyed the tour.
