RECREATING Let the music play by Shannon | Sequential Prophet 5 | Casio CZ1 | Behringer RD8

"On the original track, a Roland CR8000, TB-303, JX3P and MC202 were used. Unlike my previous recreation of Into the groove by Madonna, this one doesn't feel quite so accurate, and I blame all of that on the 'Celeste' and 'Xylophone'; I cannot figure out how they were done on the original. Even so, I'm still really happy with the results.

Instruments used:
Sequential Circuits #prophet5 : Filter sweeps, 7ths, Strings, Brass

#CasioCZ1 : 'Guitar' chords

#Behringer #deepmind12 : Bell, Celeste (sequences), Xylophone (sequenced)

Behringer #rd8 : Drums (programmed entirely using the internal pattern and song sequencer)

LinnDrum: Congas (sadly not using my real LinnDrum since it appears to be two different conga ROMs in the original song, or maybe they were using a sampler in the original?)

#Roland #tb03 and Behringer #arpodyssey : Bass. Sequenced entire on the TB-03 internal sequencer (IMO it's really not that hard to use a 303 sequencer), which was synced to via MIDI to the DAW, but also output said sequence to the Odyssey.

The effects are period correct, using tape-style delays, a simulation of the AMS RMX16 for reverb, some stereo CLA76s and tape simulators for that final touch."
