Kraftwerk's Autobahn on Electro-Harmonix Effects Pedals
By James Grahame
Bill Ruppert writes, "I have developed a video series for the effect pedal company Electro-Harmonix called Effectology. Every two weeks I present a new video on how to produce "impossible" sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals.
This week I recreate the synthesizer classic 'Autobahn' by Kraftwerk. All sounds were created using just a regular guitar and effect pedals! No keyboards, samplers or midi pickups were used."
Autobahn was a surprise 1974 hit by German synthesizer pioneers Kraftwerk which soared up the charts in Europe and America, thanks in part to some brilliant work by German producer Conny Plank (Eurythmics, Ultravox). The pulsing piece propelled Kraftwerk to the forefront of European electronica and helped define the future of pop music.
