Another resurrection of a very old, but useful thread. I'm building a Genesis tribute band with my son as the drummer/lead singer, and a friend of his, who is a great bassist and guitar player. Funnily enough, his name is Mike
talk about coincidences.
Anyway, I use mainly MainStage 3.3, and have a lot of sounds already emulated or sampled. I have a great collection of virtual instruments, including the Quadra, a Prophet, a DX7, between others. I also have sampled an old Pro Soloist VST, using a Windows VM, so I'm also open to use Windows VST for sampling, if needed.
Now, I'm looking for the sound of Down and Out. Not the hammond, since I can emulate a heavy chorused and phased hammond, but the starting stringy sound. I'm not really sure what he used for that, I imagined it would be the ARP2600. The lead I can hear sound like a Pro-soloist, but I'm not sure either. Although, on Wikipedia, it says: ..."The end of the track has Banks and himself duelling between the Yamaha electric piano and his Roland guitar synthesiser"... so is very confusing trying to guess which instrument he used.
My bet would be that he used the Roland RS-202 heavily on this song. If that is correct, I wonder is there any MainStage compatible AU instrument that I can use.
