[This article](https://www.emusician.com/artists/underworld-barking-mad-reinvention-as-self-realization) on the recording of the "Barking" album describes the band's then-current studio setup. It states, "Underworld relied on both software and hardware synthesizers. Soft-horses included Logic ES2; GForce ImpOSCar, ImpOSCar2, String Machine, and Oddity; Sonic Charge’s Synplant; Synthogy Ivory (piano); Rob Papen BLUE; and Native Instruments’ Battery 3, FM8, Reaktor 5, and Massive."more
For those of is that can't afford, or can't track down those classic old string synthesizers such as the ARP Omni 2 or the Solina (and let's face it, that's most of us!) this is a beautifully-sampled ROMPLER that will get you very close indeed to those classic tones found on Joy Division's 'Closer', the Cure's 'Disintegration' and Air's 'Moon Safari'. Highly recommended. Oh yes...and it's got the Elka Rhapsody in it as well. Which is the one on Tangerine Dream's best records, Phaedra and Rubycon. And it sounds pretty close.
