Created by Youtuber on4word, the final product that was “dedicated to all toadstool beings,” was produced using the SoundFont format, which was originally developed in the 1990s by E-MU and Creative Labs, enabling you to create your own sounds using custom samples, and then play or sequence them via MIDI.
You can listen to the album below:
The album has been titled In Rainbow Roads, a joke directed at Mario Kart fans, and features all ten tracks from In Rainbow.
Just like the original Radiohead album, on4word has adopted the pay-what-you-want model which was viewed as revolutionary at the time, but has since become more commonplace within the arts industry.
In more pop-culture cover news, a producer has recreated the Star Wars theme using just Logic Pro and sample libraries.
Simon Passmore used the extensive sample library to recreate the well-known theme, leaving fans impressed, and begging to know his secret.
“First of six short Star Wars mock-ups using my favourite bits of music from the first six films. Next one (sometime [in 2023]) will be from Empire [Strikes Back], either The Asteroid Field or Imperial March,” he wrote in the caption for the video. “[I’m] planning to have a look at the music from Pixar’s The Incredibles next, along with something from Empire, as well as potentially making a short walkthrough for this Star Wars mock-up.”
In Rainbow Roads is available to download on Bandcamp.com
