    Does anyone want to add what they know to a list of decks that were used in popular recordings. We could have a big archive here if others want to add to it. I'll start with what I know (or what I think I know) and anyone who can please add to it, make corrections or help be more specific.

    This is going to be just a rough start.

    His best works were synthesizer interpretations of classical works. The equipment used on each album was usually printed on the back cover.

    Since the LPs belong to my father and I don't have them, I took the details from this site:

    EDIT:

    This was my source for Peter Gabriel and Synergy:

    Nice.

    Do you remember what Dire Straights "brothers in arms" was recorded on? It was one of the first digital multitracks.

    Nop. Nor I ever remembered it as I was not there. heh heh
    According to this source:
    "..."Thanks to Mark, that album [Brothers In Arms] was among the first to be recorded on a Sony 24-track digital tape machine," explains Neil Dorfsman. "One of the things that I totally respected about him was his interest in technology as a means of improving his music. He was always willing to spend on high-quality equipment, and I actually remember the night he made the decision to try digital."

    My comment to the above: "Uh, Mark, you poor soul. May God Have mercy on You."
