Subject: Re: Questions on a certain Jupiter-8 stab

I was talking about the stabs heard in the Huey Lewis and the News
song, "I Want a New Drug". I have seen a Jupiter-8 being used in the
video. I hope there was no pretend play there (I hope it was really
done on a jupiter-8, and not a rival, like a Prophet-5 or an OB-Xa).
The sound sounds very similar to the stabs heard in Duran Duran's "Is
There Something I Should Know" and Rick Springfield's "Human Touch",
but those two sound much mellower and airier than the "New Drug"
stabs. All I can tell you is all three stabs mentioned sounds similar
to the Casiotone MT-220/205 synth sound-but sounds better than a
Casio. I have heard that the JP-4, JP-6, and JP-8 are have different
circuitry from each other, I don't know why, but they do. I have the
extended remix of "Human Touch" by Rick Springfield, which starts with
the verse, but there is nothing but synths and acoustic guitar. I can
e-mail that 60-second wav file to you as soon as possible if that's okay.
