What module was Ray Charles using?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

l am new here.

 

I am a semi pro keyboard player,I play a Triton Extreme 76 and

 

I'm interested funk,jazz rock'n roll etc.

 

Question: I saw the late Ray Charles on TV recently ,a live

 

concert from Paris recorded not too long ago.

 

He was using a Yamaha master EX 88 ? keyboard and he had

 

great module (not visable on screen). Well it had all the great

 

sounds, acoustic pianos, Fender Rhodes, as well vibraphones etc.

 

Does anyone out there know what module he was using. I kept

 

on thinking Yamaha.

 

Any info would much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks

 

Frank

That would be a Yamaha KX88 MIDI controller. Not sure on the module, however. Sorry.

Thank you Pawnz for the info, I now realise I was looking at the

 

KX88 controller. I would love to know about that module he was

 

using,very good professional sounds.

 

Thanks again

Huh???

 

 

 

Back on topic, I am a little surprised that Yamaha does not list Ray Charles in their "Digital Music Artists" list, given that I have seen Ray Charles use Yamaha products plenty of times:

I am pretty sure Ray Charles sounded good, and played well, on any type of keyboard.

Ray used 2 Kurzweil K2000 modules that sat under the keyboard.   I'm currently writing a story about when Ray used my KX88

Cool... thanks for the info. The K2000 is a cool sounding synth. Would like to read your article when it is finished, so please post a link when it is done!
