The Carpenters’ ‘Close To You’ On Modular Synthesizer

Sunday Synth Jam: Glownely Glow-Lonely shared this unusual modular synthesizer cover of the easy listening classic Close To You, by The Carpenters.

Here’s what they have to say about the technical details:

“The voices are Plaits, Rings, Elements, and STO. Hermod is the main sequencer, but everything is being clocked by Marbles to create a push pull and jitter to the sequence. “

  1. Just in time for flu season: a song that sounds like a huge dose of Nyquil. Hilarious and nicely rendered. I’d like to hear just a bit more like this from modular players. It makes the approach feel more appealing to us holdouts. Way to patch!

  2. Well there’s an odd choice these days for electronic interpretation! Sure beats a bunch of useless, pointless R2-D2 BS.
