Yes, the Korg synthe-bass provided most of the basslines on 1981's "Non Stop Erotic Cabaret".
The other synths on the album included a NED Synclavier II and Serge modular system, both owned by
producer Mike Thorne.

I love those Korgs! I got my first Kee Bass, hoping to emulate it (it did not). That first Soft Cell album was terrific.

I think that the B-52s used one - a Korg - for a while, too, didn't they? I know they later used a Moog, but I do believe I've seen them with an SB100 as well.

Yep, the B-52's also used a Synthe-bass for a while.
