The track is dominated by the Roland JX-8P analogue synthesizer from the mid 80'ies- About 70% of the sounds on this track is from it. The sweeping synths is the Roland Juno 2 and the drums is provided by the Roland TR-626. The arpeggiated sound in the beginning is the Roland Juno 6. It's arpeggiator is synced to MIDI clock.machine.
The main solo comes from the Novation MiniNova.

All other footage done by me with the Sony A6000.

My tracks pay homage to all synth.pop acts of the 80'ies like Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, Ultravox, OMD, Euryhmics, Duran Duran, Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, A-ha and many more.

A use mostly old gear on my tracks and among them Roland Juno 6, Alpha Juno 2, D550 and JX-8P. Korg DW-8000. Roland TR-626 drum machine. Yamaha DX7 and TX802 and drum machine RX11. I use the Novation Mininova as a vocoder on all my tracks. Effects are usually handled by Strymon and TC electronics. Sampling is done on my E-MU ESI-4000 and I mostly use that for drums."
