Sakamoto discusses using the synth as part of his 1978 work "Memories of Nazca" <p> "I mostly used a Korg PS-3100 for the recording. I loved this equipment back in the day—I even used it on the first YMO album. It was a pretty expensive synth, but I just went for it. Somehow these Korg and Roland circuits sound more Japanese compared to the Moog or ARP synths, even though in theory they are the same. You can hear what I’m talking about on the YMO pieces ‘Simoon’ and ‘Firecracker.’ From the second album, Solid State Survivor, our sound became sharper, but the first album really contained a lot of exotic sounds which all came from the Korg."more
