“In addition to a Fender Rhodes, there was the [Access] Virus, the Moog Little Phatty, and the ARP 2600. Those were the center points, because you could get poly synthesizer stuff from the Virus, and then get really great, thick, monophonic stuff from the ARP. Then the Little Phatty, through the tape delay, and all this really nice, mushy, organic processing."more
The image here is from the inner sleeve of Oldfields "Discovery" album. The Fender Rhodes piano is in the foreground (with the Roland VP-300 on top). It's most likely the 88-note model. The listing on tubular.net is not specific, however, it's obvious that he used a Rhodes of some description. http://tubular.net/instruments/#PIANOmore
"The Transcendent was soon joined by a Moog Micromoog, a Crumar string synthesiser, a Fender Rhodes, a Roland Jupiter 4, an early PPG system (with which he performed his original solo concerts), a PPG Wave 2.2 (a gift from PPG because the original instrument was so unreliable), a Jupiter 8, a Fairlight Series II and a Fairlight Series III."more
"I've an upright piano, which has been slightly modified with felt and other things, and which I've had a pickup built into. Then there's usually a Fender Rhodes with some delay pedals, and a Roland Juno 60 analogue synth on top, which is connected to a tape delay. Then there's the grand piano, which has also been modified, in a way that I think sounds right for a grand piano. It's pretty chaotic sometimes to sound check on a busy festival schedule.more
My main instrument on Earth Analog is the Wurlitzer electronic piano (its original name). I played Fender Rhodes on “Drift.” I also used two different Minimoogs and a Subphatty, Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet 08 and Mopho x4, and a Casio CS01, I believe. And last but not least, my first love, the piano!more
"With the Shakes, I have a pretty sweet right now. They recently bought a road-worthy B3 that has folding legs and fits into a road case. So I usually have that and a Rhodes and the Nord Electro. The Electro i normally use for just piano sounds unless the Rhodes is having issues, which happens from time to time."more
