The Son of Flynn – Daft Punk // 0-Coast cover

Published on Nov 4, 2018 Stefano Mattia

"Here is my 0-Coast cover of The Son of Flynn, from the amazing TRON: Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk.

It was not as easy as I initially thought, mostly because of technicalities with handling so many layers in Live, but I am quite happy how it turned out. The whole process was a great learning experience: I was able to deepen my knowledge on the 0-Coast and its sound shaping capabilities and to learn how external effects can substantially transform the sound. I also got some insights on how some of the 0-Coast limitations, such as the lack of a low-pass filter, can be partially overcome by Live's auto-filter.

The video shows the 0-Coast playing the main arpeggio line, with me changing balance and dynamics over time. The sound is then processed by the Specular Tempus to add that lush reverb background pad. The bass is run through the MXR stereo chorus pedal, and into the Specular Tempus set on the analog delay algorithm. The background strings-like patch's overtone and multiply controls are modulated through the MIDI-B LFO and the Slope, to give it that evolving buzzing character. The brass-like patch is modulated through Live's auto-filter to achieve that nice brightness swell.

Audio recorded and mixed in Ableton Live, mastered in iZotope Ozone.
Video shot on a Sony RX1, edited in Lumafusion.

Thanks for watching!"
