Which synths were used in this Deniece Williams song? It was released in 1984 and produced by George Duke.

thanks

Perhaps, the mks80 was used by Madonna in the mid-80s for the bass sounds.

That's what the Wikipedia entry for the album says. Quite the all star cast on that one, including George Duke, who played keys and produced it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let%27s_He ... oy_(album)
Keys: Realistic Concertmate 500, Korg K25, Korg Micro X

Guits: '86 Fender Japan '50s Reissue Strat, '80 Aria Pro II TS-300 Thor Sound
