Re: Help me to identify this synth!))

YES! I snagged up the remastered soundtrack on CD when it was released a few years back, it contains very elaborate liner notes.

Re: Ultravox Bass Synth and Its Descendants

I always loved that song and that bass sound in particular. I always assumed they were using an early version of the PPG. Those chunky digital/analog hybrid bass sounds are my favorite types of synth bass. Did anybody have any luck coming up with a similar sound on any other synthesizer? I'd be real...

Re: Italo-Disco 1986 Reverbs
