DX5 Playing Alphaville "Forever Young" (improved take)

video upload by DX5

Previous version posted here.

"*** I don't use to upload the same cover within 24 hours but I was not too happy with the "Vocoder-ish" intro I did for the previous video. Never too late to improve. ***
"Forever Young" Instrumental cover. I tweaked the JX-8P filter live for the song intro which sounded quite accurate (I guess it was originally done on a Jupiter 8 and the JX-8P did the job well).
The vocoder style effect in the intro was finally made with the Access Virus TI Snow, sampled into the Emax (they might have used the PPG Wave for it on the original recording).
Gear used (L to R):
Roland JP8000,
Roland JX-8P,
Emu Emax.
Backtrack recorded on its entirely, track by track, by me using Pro Tools. No original audio was involved. Also used:
Access Virus TI Snow
Simmons SDS 8 for a couple of effects/drums.
Original song composed by Marian Gold, Bernard Lloyd, Frank Mertens.
Performed here by DX5 Jose Maria Bara."
