I'll point Ran Kirlian to this thread and see if he has any thoughts.  He did the last or close to last collab with Gigi.

Tomas - you can just call me John... no need to use my full title.  ;-)

Thanks John!

Ok, I found a picture from when I was in Italy with Gigi. Most of the synths have been mentioned but given the spirit of the thread I though you might enjoy it.

Hi Paul, Thanks! That's awesome!

I didn't knew he used the Roland JP-8000, Clavia Nord Lead 1 and Access Virus B.

Can someone identify what are the coloured modules in the rack next to the mixer? And also the one below the Korg MS-2000?

Seems the Fizmo and MS-2000 were his workhorses, because I saw them in other pictures. The Fizmo is capable of some very weird sounds, so it makes sense.

Cheers

The green one at the top looks like the Elektrix Filter Factory.

And the 3 beneath them are also Electrix  (now defunct)  -- looks like the vocoder, the mo-fx, and the recorder/looper.

Below the Elektrix Repeater which is the bottom one is a Lexicon Jamman.
Take care.

Interesting. So he used the Electrix Filter Factory to give an analog flavor to his digital synths? What's the modern equivalent of the Filter Factory? Thx.

I think the Filter Factory can be had pretty cheaply on ebay still.

Wow nice ones, do you have them with better resolution?

I see a Korg Trinity, Yamaha FS1R, Waldorf XTK, Nord Lead 3 Rack, V-Synth XT... so basically he had all the usual suspects :)

what a weird thread...  i've in the process of archiving all of my Oophoi CDs and when searching for CD art this came up.

Oophoi saved my life, he is, without a doubt, the most important artist I've ever let into my inner life of listening. His music speaks to me on a level no-one else reaches except Klaus Wiese.  How is it appropriate to arrogantly criticize his approach, technical knowledge or ability post-humonous?

He was also the most humble and accessible artist I've had the privilege of communicating with. Even when he was in his self-described "Bardo" he took the time to listen to my silly ambient music and provided the most memorable encouragement and positivity I've ever had.  I cherish those emails like none other and I wish that he is resting in peace for providing so much benefit for me as a person an artist.

I've inquired about feedback from others and it's just ignored, Gigi took the time to listen and always treated me like a friend, not just a customer. 

makes me a bit angry and changes the way I see an artist who I used to have a mountain of respect for, which is likely to impact my decision to purchase from them moving forward.

i wish i had never seen this thread.
