Looking for the Bass used on I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

I am really into this kind of sound. Does anybody know what synth, or even preset they used for this track?
My guess is some kind of Moog or a Dx7.

My guess is that it's got lots of DX/TX on it. The bass could easily be anything from Oberheim, Moog, Roland, Korg & everything in between.

I would strongly recommend you take a look at Bitley's Fairlight Platinum or Jiggery Pokery's Retrospective refills. They're both filled to the gills with world-class vintage synth sounds. If you're looking for the 80's-era stuff, Bitley's refills would probably be more to your taste. Another place to check is EditEd4TV's 88 MPH Vols. 1 & 2.

Each library is well worth the money, and they're not 'just' limited to 80's-era sounds.




Hope this helps.

Thanks, Im gonna check them out.

I can come a long way with the PX7 and a Korg M1-refill plus some Linn Drum Samples and I actually got a real Roland D50. So how's about some Midi Out!??!?!?
