Saab Knutson gear

Probably my favorite ambient album of yours (and maybe favorite ambient album, period) is Saab Knutson. I was wondering if you could tell us about some of the equipment you used for that one.

Also, could you tell us what synth you're using for the lead in Waldorf Plant Psychiatrist:

Love the sound of that one--kind of spaced out and reminds me of early 90's g-funk synth lines but more tripped out.

Hello Sun.1: Saab Knutson was made with a Yamaha DX100 (thats what the whale is holding on the cover) and pretty much the "main" instrument, Roland JX3P, Alpha Juno 2 and also an EMU EMAX II which wasn't used much though. FX-wise probably Nomad Echoes and a Moogerfooger filter pedal + analog delay.

You can hear the DX100 and the EMU EMAXII in this song:

The lead in Waldorf plant Psychiatrist is a Korg MS10, I think the patch settings are described in the zine that comes with the Nomad Ninja release, here is a pic of it:
