TRON is my favorite movie of all time. I’ve been toying with recreating some of the classic sounds from the film on my analog synth. Though I really want to get some of these things happening in the digital domain. So this is my first Csound attempt at the recognizer.

The first version of my recognizer was done on my analog modular synth. Truth be told, I can get a much better sound out of my modular than Csound. Though my Csound one is coming along. I think the secret lies in the filters, so I’ll have to do many more trial and errors before I get it sounding right.
According to wikia, the original recognizer sound was realized on a Prophet-5 synthesizer by sound designer Frank Serafine; He modified the “helicopter” preset.
