Here for the gear

777-9311 by Morris Day & The Time - Drums

Ive always thought this was a drummer but a musician friend of mine told me the drum sequence was done on a drum machine. Any truth in this and which drum machine was it?.

100% drum machine. As was much of the Prince related product of that time.
I have a feeling it might have been one of the Oberheim machines, but I could be completely wrong.
Whatever Prince was using at the time.

I always thought the hats were real.

There are a lot of 80's songs where there are some real cymbals going on to give it a more "human" quality. I think this was typically a good choice.

Should be a Linn LM-1.
