Maybe I am over-posting, just so happy and creative with MusE right now! :)

Maschinen Aesthetik - 2020 (We Are All People)

https://youtu.be/yhjyzVX-ZEk

Music: Staffan Melin

Produced using Libre software: GNU/Linux Debian, MusE, Surge, drumkv1, Audacity

A malformed sequence turned into a song of a well known format.

The video is made from early computer graphics (1972-74) from archive.org.

Thank you for the kind comment!

Seeing you "live" in those guitar tutorials was great! You're from Canada?

We got some fine looking beavers here.
But Swedish beavers are awesome too!
Wink, wink...

Excellent song + video! It's like "Musik Non Stop Part 2"... Very well caught the vibe... :lol:

Thanks! When I found the old video clips from early 1970s, I thought that Kraftwerk must have seen and been inspired by them!

I'm curious about how you got to replicate Kraftwerk's sound so accurately; did you use soundfonts, or tweaked synth parameters until you found similar sounds? I'm starting to toy around with synths and it always take me a very long time to "sculpt" the sound into something usable. Any tips for a newbie?

The drum sounds are samples played by drumkv1. The kit is from some old samples that I dl'ed like 15 years ago from somewhere...

All synth sounds are created by Surge. I usually just find a suitable preset and tweak it until I like it. :)

If you would like to inspect the song further, I can send you the files.

Thanks for listening!

Thank you for your kind offering, but I don't think examining those files would help me; I guess it's just a matter of me practicing changing parameters and trying things until I get an ear for it... At least I don't have to build my own instruments like the Kraftwerk guys did... :lol:

Ooo, so many new songs, I can't keep up :D

This one was the best one, very true to the style.

Liked the videos both from this and the other one from archive.org, good reuse of public domain video!
