The following track titled “Thank You Steve” is a dedication to Steve Jobs made completely of sound-bytes from the man himself and sounds sampled from Mac products including: Mac I, Mac II, PowerMac, Apple II, Mac Quadra, Mac Pro and the iPhone.

Audio engineer AzR from Ridgefield, CT writes:

I made this song using only sounds from Apple products and Steve’s 2005 Stanford commencement speech. Every instrument, including drums, has been sampled from a Mac product, tuned by ear, and replayed in the context of the song.

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it.

RIP Steve. We’ll miss you.
