I have replied and said I’m happy to email you.
Did this ever materialise, or was it a no-show?
Never heard a thing. Quelle surprise.

Hey, sent you some stuff on Slack did you see it?

According to Wikipedia:

"In Kershaw's version, the synth tune was produced with an Oberheim OB-8 played by Paul Wickens (Wix).[4]"

Great, OP8 definitely has the preset so.

That's a great interview with Nik, he's a funny guy :)

Ah nice.

"The scary thing is that, although I have no recollection as to what I had for breakfast this morning, I can remember the synth that was used for the synth tune in 'I Won't Let The Sun...' 25 years ago. It was an Oberheim OB8 and it was played by Paul (Wix) Wickens" 😀

I own a Roland MKS-70 that used to belong to Nik. I've got a tweet from him confirming it.
