Are there any? Was just listening to the harmonica on What’s Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner and thinking “This is not an example of that”
Instruments where it's impossible to tell whether it's an original recording or the synthesised equivalent
There is a theme beginning to emerge here
Sorry for the serious answer but some of the stuff on Moonface’s last album actually
This is a serious thread
Most stuff by Forest Swords, and a lot of OPN stuff as well. They both play with MIDI sampled stuff digitally mashed up with real recordings/samples.
Samples don’t count for this thread though
Dunno then soz
reverse example: the horns on Got To Get You Into My Life by The Beatles sound like a shit Casio keyboard but are actually real
That’s weirdly affecting in parts, but the drum fill in the bridge nearly made me cover my laptop in tea
I’m never 100% on whether a flute sound is a flute or a mellotron
Always thought a musical saw sounds identical to a theremin
Almost every song ever then
Flute? Probably not solo, but in an ensemble you’d be hard pressed to distinguish it from, say, a Mellotron flute setting.
I reckon I could EBow an indistinguishable flute tone.
The fiddle riff one was ludicrous.
Surely they must have upgraded to either a memory stick or an online file now?
Bet you have the grey one with the ‘cool blue’ LED, don’t you?
I guess it’s all in their Ebowtube section
Can see a section on instrument imitations on this page near the bottom. There’s also a block of other videos under the main ‘ebowtube’ section
EDIT: can confirm the only one there that sounds somewhat like the instrument it’s imitating is the flute.
