Save A Prayer is an all time fave of mine from that era

On a lot of early Larry Heard tracks he used the arrpegiator on his Roland Juno 6 for basslines, but with the notes triggered with a signal from a drum machine, so it wasn’t just pulsing on the clock.

But then on some, like Distant Planet, he played the bassline live the whole way through. That’s dedication.

Pretty much anything Moroder ever touched…

(Also technically there’s a difference between arpeggiated and sequenced lines but let’s not go there…)

two come to mind!

Kaidi & Dego - Black Is Key (3:30 in)

Stefan Ringer - S.O (about 4:40 in starts to get his freak on with the resonance, envelope etc…))
