Comfortably Numb Pink Floyd
« on: October 05, 2016, 03:48:27 pm »
Wondering if anyone out there (no pun intended) has ever done a cover of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb and if you had any guidance on getting the background synth/orchestra sounds.  I've read the Wright Gear document and I guess he used the Prophet V on The Wall album, but I haven't been able to find out much else.  I know Wright also was kind of in and out on that album and Bob Ezrin might have played some of the synth parts.  Looking around YouTube I've heard a few decent versions, but I'm looking more for the background soundscape rather than a keyboard version of the song.  I've played around with some of the presets in the Prophet V3 but I'm not sure I'm really nailing it.  This is for a live performance so I'm trying to get as close as possible.  Thanks in advance for any advise.

I believe Pink Floyd did use real orhestra musicians and sounds on Comfortably Numb.
Try and read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfortably_Numb

But Pink Floyd also used a Prophet-5 on The Wall album.
