Some more info on the synths used in this song:
I already figured out the Prophet 600 and the Emulator II from the live videos, but apparently the choir for hymnic middle part ("Let us in....") is from a Fairlight. Doesn't seem to be the well-known "Arr" (think Tears for Fears "Shout"), though, but something more mellow. Maybe the "Oohh" sample from disk #20 "Humans 2"? Keymap #3275 "Mellow Vox" from Kore64 might be a good substitute for that.
And we have a winner! Ladies and Gentlemen, mr. JohnEKeys. Hi did a great job on this song. In his own words:
"Done on a PC3K7 with Kore64.
Expression pedal brings in Choir sound and changes higher keys to Middle 8 lead sound. Slider H is set to expression, so can bring in choir etc if no pedal. (B1 C2 together for swish at the beginning, mod wheel to open filter on pad)
This would be a setup I would use to play this song with a band, so no bass/guitar drums etc.
I have been experimenting with putting the chords in the Info section... works ok if put in the zone 1 program info under Mod wheel and the mod wheel is kept as mod wheel in the Zone 1 setup. Very handy to have the chords available here for a reminder.."
Indeed, having the chords there is pretty awesome!
People like John is what makes this site alive.
