by the orb?

I am curious what equipment Cauty and Paterson used to create this live track?

anybody know?

thx
unrecordings
Probably three turntables and a couple of tape machines. Maybe an S950 or S1000 if it's a later session
umma gumma
thanks!!

it's funny, if they were using TT's I do not hear any vinyl playback clicks/pops etc

I managed to find this KLF gear list, somewhere out there on the net: so probably at least some of this was available to them

-----------------------
The KLF's equipment list (Trancentral)

Akai S900
Atari ST Computer (with either Notator or Creator)
Gibson S-330 Semi-Acoustic guitar
Greengate DS-3 Sampler
Korg M1
Oberheim OB-8
Roland TR-808
Sci Prophet-5
DAT Machines, Technics SL Turntables and a large record collection.
----------------------

there is a KLF studio vid with a 909 & some other shots of studio gear too

I'd bet the samplers, DAT's, OB8 and drum machine were used in the Orb session. I believe it was Dec 1989 when they did that particular track.

why would you? I doubt they were using scratched up 78's.
umma gumma
well, even new vinyl has some surface noise occasionally

and the stuff they were scrounging the bins for back in the day would have been used vinyl, I assume

I read an interview with Patterson in mid 90's and he said they had access to a lot of fun gear "like the Prophet 5" during the making of Ultraworld.

thanks Jonne!

Fairly certain the lovely arpeggiated synth line is an OB-8.
