"Yamaha Portasound VSS-200 Digital Voice Sampler keyboard (1988)
The VSS-200 is the big sibling of the smaller but somewhat better-known VSS-30 (as used by Sigur Rós and others). The sampler section has a number of effects, including fuzz, echo, frequency modulation, amplitude modulation, and an ADSR envelope. You can also sample the keyboard's own preset FM sounds internally and apply the effects to them.

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the VSS-200 sampler or its factory sounds and were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, and reverb were added as required. Individual drum hits were sampled from the VSS-200 and sequenced in the DAW.

Samples used in the track are listed below:
RX11 Snare Hi Tune 5 (layered with VSS200 snare)
RX11 Snare Hi Tune 2 (in the middle section)
Internal voice 05 Bass Clarinet sampled and FM effect added (2)
Internal voice 08 Bowed Bass sampled and Fuzz and AM effect (6) added
Internal voice 97 Wind Bell sampled and FM (3), and Echo (2) effects added
Sampled guitar licks with added Echo (9), FM (1) and Fuzz
Sampled PSS-580 voice 58 (edited)
