I'm no big fan of Vince's (though I've nothing against the fellow!), but I loved 'Don't Go' and I never did suss how he got that lovely 'wah-growl' sound - the one before the plinky riff kicks in each time.

I love my Pro-One beyond all reason. I had mine from new and it never fails to impress and inspire me. It's still my bass synth of choice, despite some of the other gorgeous-sounding synths I have here.

If you still have your Pro-One and fancy trying it out for yourself:

I've rebuilt Don't Go for my band using these charts as a starting point and was able to get it pretty much spot on, apart from the brief single bar melody you hear between the verse and the chorus.

Thanks for the link! 8-)

Watching that video made me realise how much I miss my last hardware synth. I wish Roland would re-issue the JD-800, or create a modern equivalent. There's something great about having a hardware controller for every parameter.
