Does anybody know what synth was used to create the bass line in JJ's Steppin' Out?

Pretty sure it's a Prophet-5. If I remember correctly, there's a pic of it in the album (though I could be wrong).
Do you even post on vse bro?

The question is was it played in real time, or was trigger by the KR-55 drum machine?

Steppin' Out: one of my favorite Joe Jackson songs of all time.
The Easter Bunny brought me the 7" when I was like seven years old. Best Easter ever!

Definitely a pipe-dream to own all the gear used on this LP (as my CP-70M has sat in storage for the past decade :( ). Even though Jackson's vocal technique drives me batty on this song, still maybe one of my brain's all time favorite songs ever. Friggin' magic.
