Yazoo – Situation (Live synth cover)

May 11, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This is “Synt5´s” take on reconstructing the influential synthpop track Situation by Yazoo.

Every synth line was played live, with no computers involved and no syncing other than our ears :). The drums were reconstructed from scratch using Reaper, and then bounced to audio and imported to the Sp404. The only sample was the notorious Alison Moyet’s laughter, as we were able to remake the “Move Out” choir with our own voices. The projection is Simian Mobile Disco’s Put Your Hand Together video, we thought it would somehow match the song – and it really did.

Please forgive the grainy quality, the shaky cameras and the few mistakes, we were just having fun.

From left to right, gear list and synth players were:

Roland Juno Gi – João Marcos – Synth lead #1
Sequential Sixtrak, Sp404 – Guillermo Caceres – Bass
Korg Microkorg – Tchesco Oliveira – Rhythmic synth
Yamaha An1x – George Frederick – Main synth riffs
Clavia Nord Lead 2x – Raul Guimaraes – Synth lead #2
Vocals – Zeca Filho
