Roland sh2 - Thump Bass, Plucky Bass
Octave Kitten - Snare
Minikorg700s - Lead1
Ms20 Mini - Lead2, Highpass S/H sound in the background.
Kick is just a filtered Cr78 kick sample.
Vocals are me.

Thanks for listening!

Thanks guys. It was fun to try to recreate it. It also inspired me to stop sequencing everything and play more in. It just sounds more natural.

Definitely. I barely use MIDI now, though still use analogue step sequencing - not always for pitch, mind, and not always clocked in sync with anything else. Playing and then editing audio gives quite different results. Portishead make good use of that approach I think.

One of my favorite Human League tracks and this cover is every bit as good as the original. Well done sir!

How long did it take you to create this piece?
