Puttin' On The Ritz (Taco's 1982 version) cover with Baloran's The River & the VC340 vocoder


Published on Sep 25, 2019 Sean Christopher Evoking Emotion with Synthesizers

"I've always LOVED this piece ever since I first heard it in 1982.

Taco Ockerse, known as Taco, is an Indonesian-born Dutch singer and entertainer who started his career in Germany. Taco released his first single, 'Puttin' On the Ritz' in 1982 and his version of the song also had pieces of other Irving Berlin songs.

The only synth used for this track was the mighty Baloran the River. The Behringer VC340 vocoder was used to get my wife's vocals into the piece. We also decided to put her 'normal' un-vocoded voice into the final 1/3 of the song to give it a more organic feel. NI's Maschine was used for the percussion and all tracks were recorded into and mixed/mastered with Cubase 10 Pro."
