This pack contains my remake project of New Order’s Elegia, as featured in my New Order’s Elegia Synth Sounds article.
The original song was mostly created using the E-mu Emulator II, a vintage sampler with lo-fi samples. These Emulator II tracks were layered, panned, and treated with effects to create Elegia. Recreating it was a unique challenge as it mainly involved identifying the original Emulator II samples, which is difficult when they’ve been layered. I’m confident that I found some of the original samples, and I’m happy with how the remake eventually turned out.
The project also features two guitar tracks: one playing Peter Hook’s intro bass melody (he played a six-string bass; I just used an electric guitar) and Bernard Sumner’s outro guitar solo. The effects for these were all hardware-based; I used a Clone Theory for the intro guitar, a Tubescreamer for the outro guitar, and a Kemper Profiler amp for both.
