Chip tune version of Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy:
“I loved the Tron films and Daft Punk, so I figured why not do a chiptune version
BTW I made this with the sunvox app on my iPod, not my computer!”

Tron Legacy Chiptune (FLAC):
Synth and disco pop legend Giorgio Moroder has hooked up with Daft Punk during the recording of the French duo’s new album.
During an interview at the International Music Summit in Ibiza, he revealed that he’d laid down a “rap”, as part of the sessions for the long awaited follow up to Daft Punk’s 2005 album Human After All. According to Moroder, the duo invited him to talk about his life in a vocal booth filled with a range of microphones old and new (all the way from the 60s to today). The engineer explained that the mic they would end up using would depend on what decade of his life he was talking about. When Moroder quizzed the engineer as to whether or not anyone would actually be able to tell the difference anyway, he was assured “They will know”.
Such a painstaking/self-indulgent approach to one vocal performance might perhaps shed a little light on why the new album from the duo is taking so long to emerge. They’re reported to have drafted in some other heavyweight names too – Nile Rodgers of Chic recently revealed that he’s been involved, and earlier this year American songwriter Paul Williams (the man behind hits for the Carpenters, among others) mentioned that he had also been writing songs for the duo. No word yet on when the album in question is likely to arrive; more news when we have it.

We of course all new that some people would enjoy the challenge to make some music on the Google Moog synth
And by the way here’s another one from Jordan Rudess:
And of course Moog has to try it out as well:
In celebration of Bob Moog’s Birthday Google created a web based synthesizer for the world to enjoy. Moog’s Chief engineer, Cyril Lance, overviews the doodle’ s capabilities to help you get started crafting sounds. Now everyone can explore the wonders of subtractive synthesis and express their creativity by sculpting sounds. Remember, experimentation and learning will reward you with a lifetime of rich synthesizer experiences. #celebratebob
And here are the details:
Hello. My name is Mars. Today we’ll talk about vocal processing through a vocoder. Daft Punk have used this technique in many of their tracks.
I have searched for a long time to find a convenient and easy vocoder, and tried many different devices. When we started work on the PLAYMA track “Cuz We Are PLAYMA”, the vocals weren’t catchy enough, and at the time I had not had the opportunity to ask some of my friends to record vocals for me. I decided to try recording them myself, even though I don’t like my voice.
For the record, I used a standard iPod headset. That sounded funny and my voice was so wrong. Here I was not even in tune, but it’s ok for this example.
To begin, compress the vocal track a little bit to cut some peaks in the sample, then use the vocoder effect. In order to implement this effect, I first need to make a synth, which fills out my voice. For this I used a standard preset of “NI Massive” synth.
To create a melody for the synth, I copied the midi clip, which I used to lay down the guitar track. The Vocoder effect is very simple to use. To make it work you just need to select the source channel as the Massive synth. After this you should tweak up the effect a little for a more pleasant sound.
Next, add a slight delay between the left and right channels to spread the stereo, and cut low frequency a little bit.

Daft Punk – Aerodynamic performed by Carlo Castellano
“Da Funk” was initially released as a 12 inch single in 1995 under the Soma Quality Recordings label with the B-side “Rollin’ & Scratchin'” and again in late 1996 after the band signed with Virgin Records with the B-side “Musique”, a track that later appeared in the album Musique Vol. 1 1993-2005. In an interview with Fredrik Strage for swedish magazine Pop #23 Bangalter reveal that “Da Funk” was made after listening to Westcoast G-Funk for weeks.
“It was around the time Warren G.’s “Regulate” was released and we wanted to make some sort of gangsta-rap and tried to murk our sounds as much as possible. However no one has ever compared it to hip-hop. We’ve heard that the drums sounds like Queen and The Clash, the melody is reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder, and the synthesizers sound like electro and thousand of other comparisons. No one agree with us that it sounds like hip-hop”
In September 2010 Pitchfork Media included the song at number 18 on their Top 200 Tracks of the 90s

Here’s an unreleased track by Daft Punk from 1994 called Drive.
However, it’s a teaser that stops just when you think it’s going to start. It’s a teaser for an upcoming release, Soma Records – 20 Years, that is going to feature some classics
If you’re a fan of Daft Punk and the Korg Kaossilator, then you’ll probably like this. This is the first time I’ve ever tried playing the thing with TWO HANDS and a pencil. It’s quite tricky.
Anyway, I know the riff isn’t EXACTLY the same as the original, but that’s only because there isn’t a scale setting on the Kaossilator which can do it in one go (I know, I tried them all).
A small cover of Daft Punk on the tb-303. I decided to just try and program the pattern on the 303, not spot on, but close enough hopefully.
