Please only use english and french in this forum, thankyou.


sorry about the language.

Android thanks for yours respond it is so difficult to find something on the equipment they uset.
have even written with Karl Bartos and he writes
it's all done with a Minimoog, as far as I remember... so it is not so much info to go on
so I'm back to zero
do you know any good links about KW gear or how they used it.???

They have used tons of gear... there used to be some gearlist on a brazilian fan-site or something. They did use a lot of custom instruments, but did use a lot of factory produced instruments as well.

it is a vocoder effects alike snaredrum
so do not misunderstand me when I say snaredrum it is replacing a snaredrum
as we know it

Band passed filter (perhaps w/ highly resonant)(vowel like) thru ring mod or hi speed lfo? Perhaps tune the oscillators a few octaves apart (16' and 4' or sth like that).
That would be the direction in which I would experiment...

The sound doesn't change over time, so if they used a vocoder, they must have made a tape loop to keep it recurring like that in the song.

How do you mean? The sound is not constant, and it changes in pitch too, following the bass.

yes it change with the number but the source which I do not know is perhaps a sound from a synth you put into the external in
into a minimoog and then in a vocoder maybe it's just guessing I do not know.
but i has written with Karl Bartos in a forum he writes (it's all done with a Minimoog, As far as I remember)
and then I wrote how he made the sound when he plays The Robots now (I'm using a Minimoog and record it into my computer.) As you can see he is a man of few words so it has not helped as much as I haved hoped :cry:
but I suppose it's ok to keep gear setups for yourself when you are ex Kraftwerk member
but are there not more people who have an idea for what to use please.
and thanks in advance to all of you :D

I mean the 'color' of the sound. If it was a vocoder, he would have to say the exact same thing into it all the time.

The new albums was supposed to be out in 2010. :roll: Will it be released this year? Place your bets now! :punch:

Well, last studio album took 17 years, and so far it's only been 8 years, so there may only be 9 years to go. :punch:
