i know where im talking about i play keyboard since im 4 so that makes it 12 years.
the triton is a pretty sick machine 133mb of wave rom i believe and the 88 keys version of the triton that spike used whas sweet.
it only lacks a vocoder on radio gaga so it couldnt do the REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDIOOOOOOOOOOO but that doesnt realy matters.
Yes the DX7 it's fantastic....
I had the last year a DX7, DX21 and Jupiter 8 and was fantastic to play with these synth.
Now i have an Oberheim OB-X and a Sampler E-MU Emulator II and i hope to have the Vocoder VP 330 like Queen.
I saw yesterday in the new DVD Queen "Rock Montreal" for the Flash song they used a Roland Jupiter 8.
and for The Live Aid Spike used : Roland Jupiter 8, Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus and Electric Piano Yamaha CP-70
More info? Do you know which presets were used, in the case of keyboards, or which real instrument (which electric piano, organ, etc.) was used?
I already have the presets of the synth at the start of Who Wants To Live Forever (DX7), both synths that were used in Don't Try So Hard, the Bijou synth, the The Show Must Go On synth, and the I'm Going Slightly MAd synth (all from the Korg M1), and a Wurlitzer electric piano that was used in YMBF.
