Which synthesizers


Yahoo

Recommended Posts

did Pink Floyd use? The only one I know is the VCO3 that they used mainly for Welcome to the Machine. Also, do you have any ideas as to which synthesizers were mainly used in 80's movies, such as Karate kid, Nerds, Weird Science , etc, etc? I'm guessing DX-7 and Jupiter 8.

Thanks!

I dunno which ones (besides Floyd's VCS3) were actually used for all those things. But I can tell you this: your JP8000 (if you still have it) and a rompler will allow you to do most (if not all) of it - and sound good doing it.

I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist.

 

This ain't no track meet; this is football.

Awesome! I've been talking about doing a remix of that song at the end of "Revenge of The Nerds" for years. "Clap your hands everybody, and everybody now clap your hands" :D If memory serves me, they actually showed some of the Roland gear that was used on stage.

I remember a keyboard article where they talked about bringing 4 or 5 keyboard players into a movie soundtrack recording session and giving them charts. The composer had picked the presets I believe. Anyway, I can't remember the composer, but I was impressed that they used what they had. No sound designer or programer. I'm sure that was not always the case.
