"we’re a dying breed, but we use PCs in terms of audio editing and prefer to use Steinberg’s WaveLab because it has a very nice audio montage feature. That is one of the main components of our production, how we layer the sounds"

Norwegian EDM duo Röyksopp features a lesser-known ARP Odyssey clone from the late 70s: Octave's 37-key, polyphonic (2-voice) "The Cat," first seen played by RYXP 9000 at 0:48 in their 2016 retro-funk hit "Never Ever" with Susanne Sundfør.
While only the upper part of the "Octave" wordmark is visible on the backplate, it is easily identifiable by the placement of the Transient Generator slider group in the upper left corner, the Pitch and Glide controllers in the lower left, and the VCO1 (five knobs), VCO2 (three knobs), and VCF (three knobs) groups arranged from left-to-right. The Main Power switch resides in the upper right corner, with Bypass, VCA (Volume), and the master Noise Level slider consecutively grouped below.

In an interview, when asked, "Do you tend to upgrade your software and hardware regularly?" Röyksopp answers:
"There is a hunt [for new gear] but we already have quite a lot of synthesisers and so on. It’s always fun to get something new, although we have a few favourites that we always turn to – because we have bought things in the past that we don’t really use that often. We don’t use the Moog that often, but a few of the synths that have always been there - and I guess always will be - are the very versatile Roland Juno-106 and the Korg MS-20; also good for creating effects - even bass lines."

"It would seem to be a kind of love letter to each other, I suggest. Sidestepping my sentimental musing, however, they are more interested in talking about the Roland Analogue VP 330, the vocoder which they used to process their vocals. "
