"Still Angry" - Identify Synthesizers?

Post by ItalianStallion81 » Tue Oct 21, 2014 2:31 am



Could anyone please help me identify all the synthesizers I'm hearing on this song by Book of Love?

The hot sheet:
Yamaha DX7 with Oberheim Xpander
Sequential Circuits Prophet-5
Roland Juno-60
Oberheim OB-Xa
Oberheim DMX (synth drum track)

Thank you,



Ben

That's what I thought too. Somehow, I don't think their music crossed the Atlantic at the time but I could be wrong. I have been listening to their first, eponymous album and I quite like it.

I'd recently been told by Ted Ottaviano himself that the bell-like chorus leads were done on the Juno 60.
