AIR - Missing the Light synths

Post by EmptySet » Tue May 04, 2010 4:30 am

Who can name all the synths in this AIR video? I know what some of them are, but not all of them. Bonus points for naming the mics too. :) I assume that the synth beneath the foreground MOOG is being used to drive a vocoder along with the silver mic?

Synths = I recognize the obvious ones: MS-20, Moog Sources, some sort of wirly. Other then that, I got nothing...

Mics = Shure SM7B's and a Sennheiser 441.

And those headphones look like Sony MDR-7506's ;)

I think the Roland VP 550 is spotted......

Yep...

One Wurlitzer 200a, with a Moog Source on top, a Solina String Ensemble with the Korg MS-20 on top for Jean-Benoît Dunckel.

And a Roland VP-550 an the Moog Source for Nicolas Godin.

Very cool version of Missing The Light ;)

Graet perormance. Thanks for the link EmptySet!

From the sound I'm guessing there's a Monotron under the Solina.

Looks like they practiced their Hanon every day :)

I love the MS-20 solo and I just noticed the drummer playing a synth as well!

Golly, I didn't notice that until you pointed it out. So that's where the other sound is coming from!

Or a Memotron as a monotron would get squashed under a Solina...
