Re: Level 42 Something about you Clavi sound?

From the Level 42 digest website, the following synths were used for the World Machine album where "Something About You" came from.

WM

Prophet 5 (Front Top)
Rhodes (Front Bottom)
Wave 2.2 (Side Top)
DX7 (Side Middle)
Emulator II (Side Bottom)

This is both live and studio.

Re: Level 42 Something about you Clavi sound?

Are we talking about the 12" version, or the single version that was played on the radio?

Re: Phil Collins "But Seriously" synths

Upon further listening, it sounds like a mix between Domenic Miller's nylon string guitar and the Roland D-50 possibly because I hear a plucking sound in the riff.
