I don't recall in what thread I posted about it though.
Den letar vi reda på! ;)

Found it in the "Favorite Synth Sounds" thread a while ago,

That'd be the Pointer Sisters. Not 100% sure which synths featured in it but it sounds very Jupiter 8ish.

That song was done on an Oberheim system; the OB8, DSX and DMX.

The drums on the album ("Break Out") were a combination of Linndrum, Emulator, Simmons and Syncussion (eg on "Operator").

Good work iProg :). The info comes from an article published in the June 1984 of Keyboard magazine.

No probs :) IMO that Pointer Sisters album contains some really good synth work! (Break Out, 1983)
