Ralph Dyck’s MC-8 Arrangement of “Yesterday” by the Beatles

Ralph sent me a fantastic mp3 of an arrangement of The Beatles’ “Yesterday” that he wrote and programmed on the MC-8 in 1977, for demonstration purposes. Again, he shows the degree of nuance and expressivity that the MC-8 was capable of, even if it mostly ended up being used by most producers to churn out stiffly metronomic parts. The synth used was most likely a Roland System 700 modular.
