I know that he used a Multimoog for the bass and solos on the album "Arc Of A Diver" (1980), including on the song "While You see a chance". I'm not sure though whether or not he used the same synth for the solo on "Valerie"... On "Arc Of A Diver" Steve was also using a (rented) Prophet 5, Polymoog...

There's also a pdf of a reprint from Keyboard mag of an article by Bo Tomlyn, on how to program the DX7. He made some great commercial presets.
For those too lazy to actually visit the page, here's the link

I'll also plug the Howard Massey book. Better than every online resource I've ever read combined. If you find one, get it for sure. "Bruuuuuuce!" :wink: another plug for the book. A few yrs ago I was searching Amazon for it; of course it's out of print, but I was given an option to place an order a...

My Chroma Polaris is dead...every now and then I drag it out, take it apart, look inside, scratch my head, put it back together and tuck it back in the closet.
DX7 has a faulty midi-out port, no big deal but I do like using it's keyboard as a controller.
Mirage rack has a faulty midi-in port.
