    Wasn't the Jupiter responsible for that synth line from Prince's 1999 also? Also, dunno which synth it was, but the opening riff from "Seperate Ways" by Journey is easily recognizable, too.

        Freeze it there - the branding is all covered up but unless they only used it because it looked cool, def a Jupiter 8.

          Well, damn. I thought the DX-7 was supposed to be THE sound of the 80's but I think the Jupiter is coming in a very close second. Wasn't the Jupiter also the synth from the Thriller intro?

            Journey definitely used a Jupiter 8 on Frontiers.

            Well, why not take a song with *both*? (Harold Faltermeyer - Axel F. Jupiter is the main riff, DX7 does the bell and marimba. Moog modular for bass per Wiki.)



            Thriller (the album) used all the top notch gear of 1982 they could find, but they seemed to adore the Jupiter as well. Probably the opening was the Jupiter (though who can tell the difference between various poly sawtooth pads?), but a GS post indicates the "pipe organ" was Synclavier and the bass Minimoog.



            The DX7 was made in 1983, so obviously it's not the "sound of the 1980s" on any song made before then.

                The D50 was definitely the sound of the late 80s. At one point (1988 or so) a significant percentage of all top 40 hits featured D50 presets prominently.

                      **************** YES!!! That's hands down my favorite Queen song and I've heard them ALL. Had a friend in high school that was OBSESSED with them.



                      What a great synth solo.

                          Intro is ARP Odyssey actually. Concert DVD showed James Young playing it, and a photo from that era shows an Odyssey on JY's side.



                          1st and 2nd solo are Oberheim SEM not Minimoog. Key to that sound is routing EG to oscillator 2 pitch only - just a minute amount. Very subtle but effective. Minimoog can't do that but when I dialed it up on a SEM it was the exact same sound.

                            Thanks.



                            I really only figured it was a Minimoog lead because it's part of the Mox Vintage keys; the brochure that comes with it says that it was a triple oscillator Minimoog lead.

                              yer post confuses me.... first line says "LINE" (singular), the next same question says "lineS" plural. Very different.



                              I always thought the ONE most singularly known synth riff was ELP "Lucky Man" the synthy synth to end all synths, first middle and last example of oldest best known syntheism. But I could be wrong.



                              Now, if you mean PLURALLY, that means maybe the most uses that are most obvious? In the old days, I guess it was Moog, but then the Juppy and D50 and DX7 kinda took over. I think the mostests useageness fully depends on the era you pick: 80's maybe jupey, 90's I dunno... Dx7 D50?



                              Jump is well know but I'm thinking Lucky Man for the crown. ?? maybe not
