Straight from the man himself: A Roland Jupiter 6 sequenced by a Roland MSQ-700, synced with a LinnDrum.

yes that's what I read as well. hMMMM. And that's part of the reason I bought a Poly 61. No regrets - great sounding synth actually.

If you want to know what it really was just ask Huey Lewis.

Not that I want to cause an argument.. ;) but... isn't that an advert for Roland gear? A guy isn't going to say he used other brands, I think the only exception would be the Linn as Roland didn't have an equivalent. Anyone got the phone number for Huey? :lol: hmm.. I suppose it needs to be email address.
