Phil Collins "Sussudio" Minimoog with MIDI for Auction?

"Little Video Demo for my minimoog D with Studio electronics midi added"

via this auction

"I bought this from the keyboardist for Phil Collins, he told me that he used it to record the live track minimoog bassline for the song Sussudio, it has been the same live track ever since!"

Update: via davidfrank in the comments: "Hi David Frank here. I programmed the sussudio bass line on a oberheim obxa/Dsx/Dmx connected to a minimoog. could have been this "midied"minimoog. It was at townhouse studiosLondon in a programming room by myself while Phil and Hugh Padgham were doing other parts for the album.
Phil had sent me a demo of the song that had an 1/8 note repeating on the root note as the bass line. I changed it to the 16th note riff to make the song more exciting and the track more original sounding. In the process of putting a slide TO the downbeat of the Chorus I tried a slide ON the downbeat instead. Thus the Sussudio bassline. The horn arrangement was done later and used the bass line as it's main motif."

  1. I'm quite sure that if David Frank (of The System) was the producer for Sussudio, he might have played/programmed the bassline himself.
