"Touch and Go" Brass Patch

Post by Aaron2 » Mon Apr 20, 2015 4:46 am

Just my opinion, but I think Keith Emerson is the undisputed master of the brass patch -- and here's one of his better ones, from "Touch and Go," which appeared on the 1986 Emerson Lake & Powell LP.

Any idea what synth Keith might have used for the intro/lead? Moog modular?

There's a good chance it was partially the Oberheim Matrix 12:

"The Matrix 12 was also brilliant! I used it on the 1986 Emerson, Lake & Powell tour. In fact, I had it connected to the MIDI'd GX1 to augment the tracks 'Fanfare for the Common Man' and 'Pirates'."

Huh, that's interesting. Or maybe it was the GX-1?
