"No, I played Kurzweil this time. As you say I often played Minimoog in the past. Or DX7." and "No, I think it was one of the preset sounds on a copy of the ROM which was Kurzweil's accessory. Or maybe I used other sound module in the end. I can't remember how the patches were. But I don't dislike programming itself though I sometimes leave it to other people. Recently I use MARK OF THE UNICORN's Performer [a programming software for Macintosh] and a Macintosh as my main tools when I do it. However, as to the sounds of such vintage instruments as Wurlitzer's electric piano and Hammond organ or of such effects as wah wah, I use real ones more often than programmed ones. But this does not mean that I defy sound modules and sampled sounds." - Charles Shimiz, Keyboard Magazine May 1997, interview talking to Steve Winwood's upcoming Junction Seven album - http://www.stevewinwood.com/news/6052more
Autechre's hardware samplers include the likes of the Ensoniq ESR and EPS, Kurzweil K2500, Emu E-Synth, and Casio samplers like the FZ1, FZ10, SK1, SK5 and SK100. "Changing them is brilliant fun," remarks Booth about the latter three, "get the backs off them and a few bits of wire and have an amazing time. We mess around with electronics, and have loads of broken half-bits of gear lying around. I learned some things at college and can use a soldering iron."more
"...We don't really have many sample-based workstation-type keyboards in the studio, except for the Kurzweil K2500." The K2xxx series was also used a lot on the downward spiral. The guitar for "Hurt" is the acoustic guitar patch on the on the orchestral rom. The drums for "The Becoming" were also programed on a K2xxx series.more
