Gary Numan’s Live Rig


Gary Numan shared this image of his live rig from a hotel rehearsal for his London show on Friday.

Numan’s rig combines 30+ years and three generations of electronic music technology – ranging from the Oberheim OBXa (which was released pre-MIDI) to a laptop to a tablet running a virtual Minimoog app (iMini?).

  2. I wonder how many backup OBXa’s he has. Toting those around the world at their age is a very ballsy move in 2014. Mine was toured around the world by UR in the eighties- that’s Jeff Mills and Mad Mike Banks, if you don’t know. And it shows the wear, but it still sounds amazing. I used to live above Submerge in Juan Atkins’ old place, when I got to know Mad Mike.
