Can I make a hit song on the C64?

I know, let's convert the Commodore Music Maker into a sexy red thing with LED and potentiometers, then use it to record a brand new SID powered track!

"Can I make a hit song on the C64?"

Sure, just make your song and wait until some famous 'producer' steals your track *cough*Timbaland*cough*

I've never seen (or knew of the existence of) one of these C64 keyboard overlays. Why is it an overlay? Do the piano keys depress keyboard keys underneath and if not, why is it an overlay?
CPC6128 modded with ABBA switch. External 5.25" floppy drive with side switch and Multiface 2. Now also sporting a joystick splitter and M4 WiFi board.

Yes, it's just a chunk of dumb plastic that makes the keyboard look like piano keys.


It's an overlay because of the way it is.
