A Steve Jobs musical tribute made from Apple sounds

An audio engineer has composed a musical tribute to Steve Jobs, using just sounds from Apple computers and quotes from the man himself.

An audio engineer has created a fitting musical tribute to Steve Jobs in the form of a song entitled "Thank You Steve." The track is made entirely from sounds from Apple computers, along with quotes from Jobs' legendary 2005 Stanford speech.

Uploaded to YouTube by 'AzR' from Ridgefield, Connecticut, it samples Mac products including the Mac I, Mac II, PowerMac, Apple II, Mac Quadra, Mac Pro and the iPhone, reports The Next Web.

You can listen to the song here.

"I made this song using only sounds from Apple products and Steve's 2005 Stanford commencement speech," writes AzR on the YouTube page. "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."

Tributes to Steve Jobs came from people as diverse as Bill Gates, Stephen Fry, Kevin Smith, David Cameron and Barack Obama, as well as thousands of Apple fans all over the world. Last week Time magazine released a tribute issue dedicated to Jobs. Steve Jobs' biography, written by former Time managing editor Walter Isaacson, has been brought forward to go on sale on 24 October. Next week Apple will hold a celebration of his life for staff.
