It's a BBC Micro with UMI sequencer, if I remember rightly, which he used to put the tracks together before transferring the data over to a bank of Roland MC4s for actual recording.

Thanks for the Input Nathanscribe!.

I had no idea what computer was it, and yes, he was talking about recording there a few tracks with the bassics of a new song.

Really? I thought the UMI was a complete sequencer on its own, with CV outputs. I thought the only way to program an MC4 was by typing in the data. So you're saying they used the UMI as an MC4 editor, in a way?

UMI was a MIDI sequencer and to my knowledge, Clarke used it to structure tracks before transferring data by hand to the CV sequencers.

Ya you're right, I found an interview, that's exactly what he did. Mad.
