    Default What synth did Ed use?

    On Dancing in the Streets? I know that he used an Oberheim OB-X for Jump but I was looking to recreate his DITS keyboard sound so i'm looking for a virtual version for Logic 8. He used the same delay settings that was used on Cathedral but I need that cool sound and if I know the keyboard he used then maybe I can recreate it. Maybe it was the same Oberheim?

    Also, while on the subject, does anyone know where I can find a list of ALL the keyboards Ed has used through out the years? I know he used a Wurlitzer on ATCWR but other than those 2 songs I am lost (as usual LOL!)

    thanks for any help!

    From classicvanhalen.com:

    Dancing in the Street (3:43)
    "Dancing In The Street" was originally a hit for Martha and the Vandellas in 1964. Ed used a Mini Moog synthesizer in conjunction with his echoed guitar for the music in this song. He initially wanted the music to be for an original song. However, Dave and Donn Landee talked him in the using it for this cover tune. Eddie later identified this song as his least favorite Van Halen recording.

    Just perusing over there....

    Phil Hartman did Waldo's voice? huh, never knew that. I always though it was Dave talking in a really deep voice.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
