It only takes a couple of searches (type "software sampler" or "soft sampler") to return results for the question you answered.

TONTO (The Original New Timbral Orchestra) - "Phantom of the Paradise"
McLeyvier - "Strange Brew"
SCI MAX or MultiTrak (can't recall correctly) - "Down and Out in Beverly Hills"

I'll think of more later...

Circa 1986 - Juno-6, ARP Axxe, Boss DR-220e, Akai reel-to-reel. I felt VERY special adding a Mirage and S-10 to the mix in three year's time - the things that money could have bought today makes me wince. Oh well - fun at the time!
