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.

No problem
I left a wee comment for you on the video.
You can see who I am, and my channel...

Thank you for the kind comment!

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

We got all three of those in Sweden, too! :)

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!
