Van Halen 1984 Explained - Oberheim OB-Xa

video upload by Ryan Day

"Giving you my take on how Eddie Van Halen created the 1984 intro on an Oberheim OB-Xa synthesizer, and how his engineer Donn Landee put it all together based on what I've read.

The resonance bass swells consisting lower 4 voices would have been panned to the L output, and the upper string 4 voices panned to the R output. Engineer Donn Landee would have recorded the L/R outputs on to 2 separate tracks allowing him to process each track differently."
