Is it possible to make catchy retro synthpop music with only a cheap synth module from the late 80s? Does gear really matters if the song is strong enough to begin with? You decide!

The Kawai PHm “the pop module” from 1989. A non-GM module of the PH50. 200 presets which sounds like down-sampled versions of the Kawai K1 sounds.
I find this module highly capable of making gritty, crunchy and beautiful sounds and with a bit of (lots actually) compression, EQ, reverb and arranging I think this sounds perfect for this song. I wouldn’t want to change out one single sound.

Growing up I listened to so much synth-pop and it’s only natural that my own music takes inspiration from many of the acts I loved back then. I still love them and listen to them!
Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Erasure, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, The Human League, Propaganda. FGTH, Ultravox, OMD, Eurythmics, Duran Duran, Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, Alphaville, A-ha as well as loads of artists doing what is now called Italo Disco. And many more great acts like Nik Kershaw, Spandau Ballet, Wham, Dire Straits ++
