what JMJ exactlly says between 3:00 and 4:00 of the link i've post here is that he systematically doubled Nordlead sequences / sounds with ARP2600 low freq and subs

What is the synth used in equinoxe 7 producing rising sound in the middle of the album version?

(2:23 is the first appearance of that sound)

would that be oberheim two voice?

Rising sound?

You mean a glissando

Jarre's favourite thing to do on a keyboard. :P

You can use any keyboard instrument to do that. From pianos, organs to synthesizers.

It's usually done on a harp, due to the wonderful harmonic resonance it produces.

On Oxygene 1 its a pulse waveform, with keyboard tracking. Equinoxe 7 could be the same.

ARP2600 was used for Oxygene 1.
It's a kind of magical sound, which is why Jarre uses it, but really any synth will do.

In order for the lower notes to be darker, as they are on both Oxygene 1 and Equinoxe 7,
the instrument must either have inbuilt keyboard tracking (such the Eminent 310 and ARP2600) or it can be adjusted/over-ridden as the ARP2600 also provides.

The Oberheim synths did have keyboard tracking, but I'm not sure the 2 voice did. It's the later ones, the OBX series.

Jarre preferred to use keyboard tracking, because that gives a more natural timbre to synthetically created "instruments/sounds". Which mimics the way acoustic instruments act in nature.

Well, since it is almost impossible to play these sequences live, it is most likely played using the Matrisequencer and this was almost only used with the Arp 2600, that would be my guess. :)

The last one starting slow and speeding up, is the only one played straight up without ane notes going back or jumping, this one he could have played directly on the keyboard, if the sound was transposed to C ;)

Huh? It's not a sequence, it's a glissando. The specific 2:23 one which he was referring to, there is no easier thing in the world.

There's two types of glissandos in that track, the former is as easy as pie, the other one requires the Matrisequencer, because it goes up and down a note, as it rises steadily.
That one occurs first time at 3:33.

Believe me, I have replicated them all in my cover version, they are not just glissandos, they step back a note or two several times, exept the last one.

Hi guys, does anybody know what Synth was used at the lead sound of Magnetic Fields 2? I think it is a Fairlight, but I am not sure.

Missed this post from last year. Yeah that's exactly what I said. There are two types. :)

I call them still glissandos, one hand played, one sequencer played. It's not technically a sequence in the meaning that Jarre's music usually uses it. Though in the strictest sense it may be called a sequence, just as anything hand played or machine played is, when repeated, for example Eq 1 Em Seq. Or the Oxy5 Right Channel Str Seq or many of the passing sequenced effects in Oxy 7-13.

Alright... the translation is quite funny tho. He called me a shoe.

Anyways, as I said, I think it is the CMI Fairlight, because Jarre used it as a prop in the MF Pt. 2 Music Video (Click - Video starts right at the leads.).

However, for me it sounds a little bit organ-ish too. Maybe a sampled organ?

Oberheim OB-X. The same lead is also used in MFS part 1 and Oriënt express.

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post here. I was wondering if anyone here happen to have a reasonably comprehensive listing (preferably one that's reliable :)) of what synths/keyboards were used for the various parts on Oxygene and Equinoxe, i.e. a synth-breakdown for each of the tracks.

I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Micke
