Hi - passed by the forum off and on for quite a while now. Time to ask a pressing Q.

Quick question to those who might know. How did Ultravox (Vienna onwards) get that haunting piano sound? is it minors clashing with the general feel of the song? was it the way it was eq'd, was it just the type of keyboard? was it the chord voicings used?

That sound has lovingly haunted me through the years since I was a teen in the 80's (you do know what I mean, don't you? think Vienna, Dancing...., etc) and now that I do sound mixing for a couple of bands myself, I'm still trying to replicate it.

Anyone? - the Monument guys? - Any help? - anything appreciated......

Thanks - Wayne
