The vocal track was created from a cello preset, processed by a formant filter, and with note-bending enabled. The Scale Keyboard interface was set up to control filter cutoff and volume in the vertical dimension, and the modulation wheel was enabled for vibrato. The backing orchestra originated from an imported MIDI file assigned with preset violin, cello and brass instruments. Timpani was later added using the Drum Pad interface. The audio to this video was recorded live in Looptical and then exported as a compressed audio file.
