Which synths on Madonna tour

Post by Andyb75 » Sat Nov 21, 2015 6:27 pm

Hello all can anyone tell me what synths were used in Madonnas virgin tour in the mid 80s i know they used 2 keyboard players and a synth bass player
Can only make out a DX7
I'm just curious as the sounds they had on those gigs are awesome and would like to get close creating something like that for a project I'm thinking about doing

Was watching the Live Aid video and it has sound check and at one point sound guy says and now the Emulator and its her voice sampled for Holiday. So somewhere in the sea of DX7s I counted five on stage there has to be an Emulator some where running sampled vocals and parts too.
