Sonic's Gear

Postby Mr Slang » Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:31 pm

I've just come across a short but cool interview with Sonic Boom on youtube.
I really liked the solo stuff he did a couple of years ago - Hall of Mirrors, Walking & Falling, Spectrum /S3 covers using electronic equipment.
I'm curious to know what instruments he was using at the time and this clip briefly scans over his stuff.
I can see what looks like an Alesis Air Synth, Yamaha PSS-580? & possibly Behringer Delay pedal? but can't make out the other stuff.
Anyone have any ideas about the things he uses?

I can see a Boss Dr Sample. dunno model no.

And a Boss/Roland drum machine. dunno model no.

There's a Boss stompbox, digital delay. cant tell the model number. maybe a DD3.

Does anyone know what model Yamaha keyboard he uses for his live shows?

thanks

The Behringer stompbox in the original video looks like a VD400 (analogue delay)

Actually, it's probably a Boss Dr Synth, not a Boss drum machine.

EDIT. hmm, my previous posts dont seem to have appeared

I concur with the Boss Dr Sample and the Korg EA1 identifications.

The Behringer stompbox in the video is probably a VD400 (analogue delay)

The stompbox in the photo is a Boss Digital Delay. cant tell the model, maybe a DD3 though.

The Yamaha keyboard looks like the model suggested.

The little cream keyboard is a Casio.

this video also has sitlls of Sonic's electronics equipment - but image is in reverse, I think.

fast fwd to 1:00 time.

The two Boss devices can be seen.

I cant tell what model the Boss stompbox is.

I think I saw Sonic use a Boss Line Selector pedal on his desk top though.

Also saw him use a Behringer digital delay (white pedal). dunno model no. Probably one of the Behringers ones that's a rip off of a Boss DD5 or DD6

yes, I think you´re right. It says direct out instead of output under the input, so must be a dd3
