“Spacelab” – with CoolEdit vocoder

October 9, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

More Kraftwerk tunes coming your way, here’s a new cover of Spacelab by ‘organfairy’, details below:

After discovering that there is a vocoder effect in the multitrack part of CoolEdit pro I have thought about how I could use it. And then a couple of months ago someone suggested to me that I should play something by Kraftwerk.

And now I have added these two factors together and played the classic track “Spacelab” that was originally recorded back in 1978 on the album Man Machine.

Apart from the vocoder software and the old Telefunken microphone I use Yamaha HE-8 and Technics SX-C600 organs, Roland SH-2000, Korg Poly 800, and Roland JX-8P synthesizers, and finally the little Wersi M.A.X.1 module for the rhythm.

Most of the sounds are only treated with some reverb or echo. But I had to speed up the sequence in the beginning in post production because that was the only way I could do that particular sound.

And sorry about the goofy face. I am not used to singing on camera but I wanted to show that it is really me that sings – allthough in a modulated fashion :-)
