The number of classic synths in Chromeo’s studio is staggering, frankly. Patrick says that the Moog Prodigy (top-left) is “probably the third synth I bought,” while the Sequential Circuits Pro-One (top-right) is a more recent addition. “This is the bass sound on Don’t Turn The Lights On and on Hot Mess as well,” recalls Dave. “It has MIDI so Pee programmed the line in MIDI then tweaked the portamento afterwards live.”
Also in shot is the Sequential Circuits T8 (bottom): “This is the big brother of all the Sequential Circuits synths in the studio, but as you can see from the keys, it has a design flaw which makes the keybed mess up, so I need to get it fixed,” Patrick explains.
