An Oberheim Eight Voice is shown and described at 1:38 in Ulrich's studio tour with *MusicTech*. Ulrich says about the synth - "that’s probably the most powerful polyphonic analog synth I’ve ever come across, which I think has got to do a lot with the fact that if you’re playing this you’re essentially playing an independent monophonic synth chained up, rather than having it designed."more
"Zawinul did not stop at the Wurlitzer and Fender Rhodes electric pianos he used in the 1960s. By the late 1960s he was extending his sonic palette with effects like phase shifters, Echoplexes, wah-wahs and ring modulators, and when synthesizers came on the market he was among the first to buy one (the EMS Putney). The list of synthesizers he has used since then — among them the ARP 2600, Rhodes Chroma, Oberheim Four-voice and Eight-voice, ARP Quadra, Sequential Prophet 5 and Prophet T8, Korg Trident, Oberheim Xpander, Korg VC10 vocoder, Emu Emulator, Casio CZ101, Korg DW8000, DSS1, DSM1 and M1 — reads like a synth museum's treasure list."more
