"Often, each sound would be an amalgamation of perhaps three or four different types of sound. Perhaps a sample to give you a nice hard hitting front-end, or perhaps an FM sound from the TX or DX rack. Then an analogue sound - maybe from the Super JX, which we used a lot on this album - to give it warmth, and then a sample to add to that. So you create a really distinctive sound each time. It's not a preset but an amalgamation of a few things, which takes a lot of honing and fiddling about. That was especially evident on 'Everlasting Love' and 'The Prisoner'. Those two tracks were done with Chris Hughes, Ross Cullum and Ian Stanley producing."more
