Anyone recognizes the 2nd synth from top from Go West playing Live in 1987:

Top one is the Emu Emax but not sure 2nd one. I first thought DX7II but too many buttons and also it seems to be 76 keys so possibly a keyboard controller. The joystick seems 4 directional similar to Korg.

Full video (see 6:52):

Took me a while but I found it's the Roland Super JX. Pretty amazing brass unless it's hooked to one of the 2 Emulator's.

The original recording was in 1984 I believe so they probably stacked some other synth brass sounds.

Roland JX-10 Super JX. Roland's flagship synth after the Jupiter 8 was discontinued.

Yup. Roland JX-10. I'm working on a repair of one right now.
