"Kember's aforementioned EMS Synthi A was also much in use. "We ended up using it for the screaming sound on 'Lady Dada's Nightmare',” says Goldwasser. "That was just me staying up on the last night that we were recording in Malibu, right before we packed everything up. I was just making the weirdest noises. He's had some work done on it, a couple of the kind of common modifications. It has a soft sync built in, so you can get the type of oscillator sync sounds the Cars used all the time. But it's like it gets halfway there but it needs to catch up with itself, and sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't, so it does this kind of throaty thing that sounds like a voice. So that's what that screaming thing is, this weird function of the soft sync.”
"We used it as a guitar pedal a couple of times,” adds VanWyngarden. "We had some wild late?night jam sessions. I had it one time with a Gretsch guitar with a Bigsby on it going through the Synthi and it just sounded like a dive?bomber. I was just doing it for hours, over and over.”"
