Re: Synths used by 2 Unlimited

I remember reading a now lost article about Belgian techno producers and the SQ80 and ESQ-1 for some tones. I also hear TX-81z, Alpha Juno 2, and CZ in 2 Unlimited’s songs, I have a feeling there’s Kurzweil K2000S somewhere in the synth layers. The acid part sounds like a 303 or a sampler.

Re: Still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good deal?

Seeing you have a Juno-106 and Polysix, those should cover the 1 oscillator with chorus effect sounds. Seeing your music tastes, I’d recommend a JX-3P or Akai AX-60 or AX-73 since those were used plenty by some of the artists you like and they can be found around that price. Let’s see some good chea...

Re: What's a good price for a Sequential Circuits Drumtraks?

The Drumtraks is a good drum machine for some kinds of music, I believe the songs Madu & Racun and Singkong & Keju use one or an RX11 for the drums (along with DX7, piano, bass guitar, and guitar). The Drumtraks happened to be popular with E and SE Asian and Eastern European productions in the mid 8...

Re: Cost Effective Synth for messing around with

Minilogue if you want polyphony, or MS-20 Mini/Behringer D/Behringer Neutron. Can get close to the sounds used by those groups. Keep in mind they used different stuff, like Tony Banks and the Pro-Soloist. And ELP and Yes used the Moogs. Or get Arppe2600VA, MinimogueVA, Synth1, ProSoloVst, and Propha...

Re: How they did this synth riff?

Simple answer, either Roland D-50 Horn Section or JX8P Stab Brass preset. SAW had both.

Thank you for the info I will check that plugin out!
Yeah, it’s an emulation of the original Pro-Soloist.

Re: Dead Or Alive - Misty Circles Synth Techniques

PPG most likely. Or a DX7. They were produced by SAW, who used the DX7 and Fairlight as well. Maybe Sytrus will have something similar.
