Early Three 6 Mafia synths?

Can someone identify the synths on the older Mafia records used on Mystic Stylez or how to get that sound?

A lot of that stuff was sampled on mystic stylez. They recorded that album to tape I remember.

Like said that was mostly samples. They got a lot of them from horror movie soundtracks & end credit scores. I remember mpc's, asr10's, and boss dr samples, & korg x3's around the studios.

Any work that was done at Prophet posse studio would have been cut on tascam da-88's, mackie 24x8, berienger tube compressor, & a U87. I not 100% sure, but I think that was cut at cotton row studios then. Which would have prob have been da88's too. Everyone carried a duffle bag of those tapes. Haha. Lil pat did a lot of the engineering/mixing. Larry nix would have mastered it most likely.

it was done at cotton row i remember the good ol days of memphis music. you tell their mixing changed once lil pat left. I believe lil pat was not mixing for them around the mystic stylez days. I think larry did all the mixing. I think Lil pat came on board when they got their own studio.

I know about the prophet posse studio cause my rehearsal spot was next to door to it when I was in high school. Just been in the scene a long time.

Larry nix is just a mastering engineer, he doesn't mix. I'm strictly guessing that since it was done at cotton row, it could have been niko lyras or maybe slice tee just knowing the era. Paul can engineer too.

Yeah your right. I got them 2 mixed up it been so long...I remember niko mixed the skinny pimp king of the playaz ball album. I recorded a couple tracks at cotton and at the same time they were doing the king of the playaz ball album and playa g told me he did most the producing of keyboards on it, but didn't get nearly the credit he deserved.

If you want some some of the classic synths look for a roland xp30 or 50

if you go into the credits you will see where it says keyboards by playa g. i'll have to go get the cd insert from my other house. Midnight Hoes was a pure playa g piano. so was multiple other songs. Lil pat did some but playa g as hetold me did about 80% of the keyboards on that cd.
