Eno is a huge inspiration to me. His sound design, his ethics....man, theres just nothing better to aspire to! He's the guy that makes an maudio keyboard and laptop tantilizing. But anyways...anyone know which eventide unit he utilized on stuff like Apollo?

Most likely the H949 Harmoniser, pretty much the only product they were known for at the time. These were a standard feature in every pro studio back then.

Yes, they're so quiet, almost silent in fact. ;)

I'm a hugh admirer of Eno his solo and collaborative work having owned a DX7 in the 80's I was so impressed by his use and programming skills I believed he to be one of a few that had mastered the DX, but as time went on I discovered that in fact he used a Jellinghaus DX-7 Programmer! :!: !
A few year back he sold it at a Vemia auction

There's an interview somewhere, Sound On Sound I think, where he has two of them, and complains that the PSU keeps blowing up.

I get the impression that he doesn't say much about gear because it doesn't matter to him in the same way as most of us. Plus saying nothing only adds to the mythology :)
