As Level 42 are about to hit the road with their Sirens II tour in October, Mike demonstrates some of his keyboard parts and signature sounds that are part of the magic.

    Hi Mike
    I wanted to get your thoughts on the new Roland RD 2000 & Prophet 6 and all Prophet keyboards in general. Mike what are your all time favorite keyboards?
    Love Level 42 Music and your solo stuff.
    You are one of my favorite keyboard players.
    Have you heard of Diego El Cigala Flamenco Singer and Amina Figarova?
    Thanks Mike

      Hi Stefan,
      I haven’t yet tried the production version of the RD 2000, it sounds promising. I have briefly tried the P6, it sounds closest to the original P5, will eventually get one, but before that am looking to upgrade my P8 to a Rev 2 as it offers more possibilities and I can transfer my P8 programs over. I tried a P12 a few years ago and didn’t warm to the sound, although my cousin has one and says once you dive inside it it offers a lot.
      I haven’t heard of the artists you mention, I will check them out.

    Hello Mike
    I play in a Level 42 tribute band and use the Prophet 08.
    It would be an honor and a happiness for me to play with your patche.
    So I ask you if you can kindly transfer me a bank of your sounds
    Thank you
    Mauro Ferrari

    Hi Mike,
    Been a fan of Level 42 since the very beginning. Love your keyboard work. Have you tried the DSI prophet 6 (I call it a reborn prophet 5) and what do you think about the new synthesizers as compared to the older ones? I always felt that the character of the older synths is missing in the newer ones. I just wanted to hear an opinion of a pro who has played a lot of older one as to the newer ones like the P8 (which I still loved)
