do you think it was a Prophet 5 for the Bass?
All Prophet; same with Midas Touch and any of those other tracks. It along with the Oberheims was considered second only to a Mini for bass and sounded quite similar when properly programmed. There is a difference on some patches but on others it's fairly close if not quite the same.
Most of the groups then used Prophet which was the standard, some Oberheim; there weren't that many options just a few plus they all sounded great. Most of the Solar label that Midnight was on was Prophet-Dynasty, Lakeside, Whispers, etc. One Way same thing. Lucky Star Madonna Prophet. Jam and Lewis, SOS all OB-8.
Mini - The System, Fatback, Rene and Angela, Borderline and Everybody bass, Madonna with Prophet leads and pads.
