The Human League - Don't You Want Me (Instrumental Cover)


"This is my instrumental cover of a magnificent 1980s classic by the English band The Human League: Don't You Want Me of 1981.

It was a bit of a complex track to recreate for the amount of synth sounds, but I have to say I had a lot of fun creating these typical early 80s synth sounds (many of them with the classic square wave).

To recreate this track and to make the video, I was inspired by the official video version: [below]

I used the CS1x sounds for many brasses of this song and tried to get as close as possible to the original with all the other sounds. There are some differences with the original track (you can hear them by listening to the separate left/right channels), especially with the more complex sounds to recreate (for example the rhythm synth on the right channel starting at 0:23). Moreover, I made the fade out of the track a little more gradual (lengthening it a few seconds longer than the original).

I hope you enjoy my tribute to this beautiful song :)"
