Yazoo – Only You – Joe Devine and Parker Anne Devine
This was super fun to make, but a little difficult. I didn’t get all the sounds just right, but at least it’s recognizable. Parker cut the vocals against a karaoke track and then I replaced that with actual instrumentation. Other than the drum sounds (basically, and 808), I used u-he’s awesome Sequential Circuits Pro-One clone, the Repro-1.
Supposedly, Vince Clarke only used the Pro-One for this track back in the eighties. It seems very plausible given how close I was able to get with my hack at it.
We used the Blue Bottle with a B7 capsule into a Universal Audio 6176 for the vocals.
