It's cool to see the matrisequencer in action. Is it a bit of a waste to have a whole Synthi AKS just to do that wobbly sound? It seems to be just a triangle wave with vibrato. And why doesn't he use a slow VCA attack instead of a pot, on the ARP2600?

Regardless, what he does works. Oxygene is a classic.

Just bought the Oxygene "Live In Your Living Room" DVD -- in addition to being the most remarkable collection of vintage analogs I've ever seen, it's a stunningly good performance. Seriously amazing stuff.

It is and was an even bigger pleasure to attend the Oxygene Tour, using this setup plus some more :)

Funny to discover that this thread is more than a year old. The time has disappeared.

The forthcoming world tour is said to include a mix of these old pieces of history, besides some of his digital gear. Im excited to see what it's going to be like.

MS10 wasn't used on Equinoxe.... But You can hear Jean Michel talking thru VC10 in Equinoxe 5 at the beginning: "c'est bien?" [does it work?] Michel Geiss tought it would be funny to include this into project :)

Hey Radek you still haven't revealed, where you have got all that info and pics of the rare equipments from.
Did you visit Jarre himself and Michel Geiss?
You did also mention once that you had been in Francis Rimbert's studio.
