    Spot the Maschine controller (I don't see NI software though).
    Anybody know what the rest of the gear is?
    I'll be seeing them in a couple of weeks.

    These guys remind me of a more modern digital version of The Blue Man Group. Cool stuff.

    I was't comparing them, just that's the first thing I thought of when I saw four men on stage in tights in blue with a lot of flashy lights. Didn't mean to reign on the Kraftwert parade. Clearly there is a cult following I'm not aware of :p

    Life advice: Never say anything bad about the god fathers of EM, especially to a German person. You might get shot even if it is online.

    Lol. It must make me American when I say I really had never heard of Kraftwerk up until this thread. I have seen Blue Man Group once (and once is more than enough), so that's what my mind jumped to when I saw the videos posted here. Clearly I was out of line and therefore should be banned from this forum, maybe even shot. Would I be out of line if I compared Kraftwerk to Devo then ? *hides*o_O

    HAHAAH :D Because your cool, today you wont die.
    When you get some free time do some research on them, it's mandatory.
    They are Gods to most Electronic Music fans especially the "steady-beat 4/4" aka Techno type crowd, but they also unknowingly influenced changed Hip-Hop and Pop culture generally.
    They were the pioneers of synthetic music lol, what they do today is no longer different and futuristic anymore, they are respected for what they did in the past and when they did it.

    I'm told that Kraftwerk have made extensive use of VirSyn software. In particular 'Poseidon' (for which I did some of the presets) and Matrix (I was a beta-tester)

    @D-J-K, you may need more eyes to avoid the wrath! Thanks to all of you for the history lesson. +1 here, didn't know their back story. I have seen the name before but never given them a proper look so shame on me. Now, how long is a show if you play back all your albums starting 1974? Must be a blast for the fans though. Good stuff
