Fixx the keyboards.

Does anyone know what keyboard was used by The Fixx? I always like the organic sounds on songs such as Saved by Zero. Almost a formant filter sound, but I don't think there were "formant" filters back then.

They are touring the US right now so you may be able to go see yourself, Rupert (and the rest of the guys) are always out after the show and willing to talk. I don't remember the keyboards off hand but he does use a fair amount of breath controller.

I remember reading an interview with Rupert Greenall. He claimed that, of the four keyboards in his rig, only one of them had a MIDI interface (Wavestation). He also had a PPG Wave 2.3, but I don't remember what the other two were, but I'll bet that one of them was a Prophet 5.

Side-note: I saw the Fixx, the Thompson Twins and Berlin open up for the Police when I was in high school (1983, I think)...great show in the era of New Wave!
