...the original sound was _not_ made by playing the keyboard, but was done with the sample/hold module, and i presume (as i said before) was "looped" in the studio.

fyi, from http://www.synthtech.com/users.html
Quote:
Rock icon Joe Walsh has recently taken delivery of his 28 module system. Most people would not suspect that Joe studied electronics in college, and his hobby is restoring pre-1960 ham radios. His studio has many vintage synths, including a Moog 15, MemoryMoog, Juno-106 and the ARP Odyssey that played the famous sequence on "Life's Been Good To Me So Far". Maybe a new MOTM riff on the next Eagles CD?


bill, of course you are correct in general, but in this case, the "sound" is really also a sequence. certainly the original patch was "self playing", so an original patch that replicates this is probably technically a "cover". (to be more precise, the original patch played an unrepeating pattern...in the recording, it was trimmed to 2 bars) i don't think this is a big deal, but i'm not sure you are correct in this case (you may be, i only play a lawer on the internet). a paralell might be the synth part from "babba oriely" by the who.....the patch itself _is_ a sequence.

actually, this is kind of an interesting discussion (at least to me). the evolver has a "sweet dreams" preset (eurhythmics) which is pretty authentic (including the drums). if a "patch" is partly defined by a sequence (as in these examples...certainly the "sweet dreams" patch is very differant if you take out the sequencers and play it with a keyboard), then any patch that seeks to "replicate" the original (even if using differant techniques) must have a similar sequence, making it (in my mind) a cover. although the "patch programing" is unique, the "pattern" (which is part of the sound) is copywriten.
