Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk

Postby graspieper » Sun Mar 01, 2015 3:53 am

Setup to play Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk

(Notice: uses Kore64!)

Zones 1+14: synth sound for chords during chorus
Zone 2: Rhodes for chords during intro (notice: now configured to be used with external midi controller)
Zone 3: Riser sound (just before the chorus) - play on note B7
Zone 4: Low voices for intro & break - play on notes C3 to G3
Zone 5: Clap sound for intro & break - play on note C8
Zone 6: record stop sound ("Stop - wait a minute") - play on note A7
Zone 12: Drum riff (does not match original song, just for practicing with a groove instead of metronome) - use 'SW'
All other zones: Layered brass sound for riff during chorus & breaks; starting at note C6

Enjoy :D

My band want to give this song a try (not convinced myself) it sounds to polished to make it sound realistic live perhaps - will load this preset up and try it out (I'm pants at programming stuff - esp on a Kurzweil)

Same here! I got this one dumped on me to learn at rehearsal three days ago. I love this resource even though the only other time I really needed it was for another Bruno Mars thing - "Locked Out Of Heaven"!!!

Okay, here a simple setup with just 3 sounds. Something to imitate that "do-do" voices, the pad (crank up the wheel for a steady vibrato and leave it ther for the song - roughly 50%), and the brass. Kore needed for the brass.

Nice work, saved me some time.

I did move the claps down to the bottom - could not get my head around playing the Do'h's LH and claps RH.

Also add an "Oooh" (choir sound) for the pre chorus - not quite right, but works live - better than my falsetto anyway.
