THis one's all MS-20, done for a one synth contest here a while back. The percussion is the MS-20 also, controlled by a djemba drum to trigger the synth. Also, the lead at the end is a trumpet controlling the MS-20 through the ESP built into the 20, however, everything you hear is coming from the MS-20's oscillators, no external sounds were mixed in at all.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting a 100% Minimoog track.
(without any sequencing, and recorded very plainly with single takes only!)

Yeah last two albums he used a mix of the Rogue and Voyager for the live shows, and the Voyager for studio work.

Before that he used an SH-101 for live, and a System 100 in the studio.

Only you and Don't go was pretty much all Proone except for drums. I believe an Arp 2600 and/or Roland System 100m was used for that.
I think the whole of the tracks including drums where/could be Pro1. I can get all of the bass,snare,and toms from the pro1 quite easily due to the snappy envelopes. On the fansite where he re-creates 'don't go' he dosn't quite nail the drums, but if you layer a clicky bass drum with a snare you get that punch. So it can be done.

Here's some quick drums and bass done on the Pro1, with a touch of reverb, my playing might be out cus i don't use midi.

All Minimoog.
No computer, no sequencer.
No effects or EQ.
I didn't even use a metronome (which might be quite obvious).
