In [this interview](http://music.hyperreal.org/artists/brian_eno/interviews/escm84.html) with Chris Everard from the October 1984 issue of *Electronic Soundmaker & Computer Music* magazine, Eno is asked, "I seem to remember seeing an old film of you with Roxy, I think it was The Old Grey Whistle Test or something similar, and you were playing what seemed to be an [ARP2600](http://equipboard.com/items/arp-2600-modular-synthesizer), is that right?" He replies, "No, I tell you what that was, it was essentially an EMS VCS3 synthesiser built into a unit that I designed. With Roxy you see, a lot of the time I was taking live instruments and feeding them into the synthesiser and treating them, so what I had was the basic synthesiser with some extra bits to help me... they are quite rough though, those early synths."more
This photo, from [this article](http://www.attackmagazine.com/features/my-studio/gui-boratto/), shows Gui Boratto's EMS VCS 3, and the quote below it says, "This is one of my favorite pieces of gear. It’s the EMS VCS3, used by Pink Floyd on Dark Side Of The Moon. I bought it from the actor Vincent Gallo. It’s quite expensive but it sounds so unique. Songs like ‘Galuchat’ and ‘Stems From Hell’ were made with a lot of its sounds."more
