1st album: Oberheim OB-X and Minimoog (basslines)
2nd album: Roland Juno-60, Prophet 5 (incl. basslines) and Synclavier.
3rd album: Oberheim OB-8, Juno-106, JX-8P, MKS-80...

Those are the ones I'm aware of being used on those Madonna records but
I wouldn't be surprised if the third one contains some DX-7 as well.

Ive always loved the cool early 80's R&B' style production on the First couple of Madonna records. I believe reggie lucas and leon sylvers from MTUME and Stephanie mills fame handled some of the production on those ones....as well as patrick leonard.
