This is an unofficial cover version & video for Kraftwerk’s It’s More Fun To Compute – The Minimal Mix.
After attending a Kraftwerk concert in Randers, Denmark, I just had to realize this classic track from the Computerwelt album.
I aimed for a quite straight version, albeit updated to a modern-day minimal house/techno sound.
I did the video in the style of the good ol’ Germans, hand-creating ~150 video frames in Adobe Photoshop and cutting them all together in Premiere.
I used the following gear on the track.:
- Clavia Nord Lead 2X (bass, leads/pads, sequences, drums)
- Ableton Vocoder
- SugarBytes Efectrix (FX sequencer for drums)
- PSP VintageWarmer for mastering
- Ableton Live 8 (sequencing, etc.)
In a way, it’s a “demo reel” for the Nord Lead 2X as well.
