Roygbiv (Boards of Canada cover) (DMG + FB-01)

This one is a cover of one of those songs you shouldn't touch... But I did it anyway.
Roygbiv, by Boards of Canada. Played on a DMG and a FB-01 FM synth. (And a little bit of tape echo, because tape echo is awesome.)

I'm using an arduino and midi-out in lsdj to sequence the FB-01. It was also kind of a test to see how far the midi out could go. And sometimes sending up to 7 notes on 3 channels simultaneously, I'm quite impressed smile
there's a note here and there that's out of tune, or sometimes even missing. It's different every time I play it, sometimes depending on how full the batteries are...

thanks big_smile
I was quite pleased as well. Even tho it just started out as a test to see if it could work at all...

HOLY FREAKING D*MN, OK... I was LOLing at your comment on the forum post for the musician's survey thingy, and so I clicked on your name and it brought me to three words that stuck out to me: Boards of Canada. I LOVE Boards of Canada. I also love chip music. NOW THEY ARE BUT ONE ENTITY. And it is so freaking amazing.

Love this but do wish there was some subtle pitch modulation on the instruments.

You're right about it how it shouldn't be touched. UNLESS it's by you. I'm a huge BoC fan, and you definitely did this justice.

Thank you Timbob, I enjoy your cover so much! You did such a lovely job.

its a nice cover. your last track was good too. keep it up! smile

Such a nostalgic track. And the DMG only makes it more so. LOVE it. Downloaded.

Thanks Cat! That's one of the best compliments I can get big_smile

Great cover! Gave me shivers, just like the original.
