Re: Joe Jackson Steppin' Out

The question is was it played in real time, or was trigger by the KR-55 drum machine?

Re: "Lucky Star" Bass-line

I was referring the album version, sorry I didn't specify. I find the Shep Pettibone remix to be quite boring... I believe that the Like a Prayer bassline in its original version is doubled between a real bassist (Randy Jackson, as you mentioned) and a synth bassline. The real bass comes doubled fr...

Re: "Lucky Star" Bass-line

Great info. Thanks Phillip. Never thought it could be a 2600. Since we're talking about her, does anybody know what synth was used for the bassline in "Like a Prayer"? Depends on which version you're talking about. Album/Music Video Version: Randy Jackson is playing bass Shep Pettibone Remix: Minim...

Wasn't it a 2600 for the bass? And Prophet-5 for other synths..?
Yes. I was referring to the OP's post about the bass line.

Re: "Lucky Star" Bass-line

What synth was used for the bass-line in Madonna's "Lucky Star?" They used Minimoog for all the synth bass on Madonna's first album. They used a Moog Source live only because it has patch memory which is more feasible in live situations. It's a ARP 2500, not a mini moog that you hear on both "Lucky...

The Kinks-Come Dancing, Synth?

What is the calliope-like synth that is being used on "Come Dancing" by The Kinks. I'm leaning towards the CS-80, but I'm not sure.

DX7 Serial Number info

Is there any I can find out when my DX7 was made according to the serial number? My number is 96555, so I would guess around '85-86.

Re: What synthesizer are these?

My guess - the Long Arm and Something Bad sound like a Yamaha FM synth to me. The Moon and Traverse songs sound like Romplers for the majority of it, possibly layered with FM synth/s. Are you sure "Something Bad" sounds like a Yamaha synth? Because Warren was using a Korg O1/W during that time. Sor...

Re: Human League "Human" sound

Not sure how you'd do it on a DX7, but if you have a monophonic analog, you'd set the filter cut-off low around 25% or so, filter resonance around 50%, filter envelope mod close to 100%. The filter envelope should have an instant attack, short decay & release and sustain at about 25%. Amp envelope ...
