I saw some promo stuff Tony did just before the last tour where he was endorsing the Korg Oasis keyboard and the Mirsolav Philharmonic sampled orchestra collection.

The Oasys was Tony's main rig on the 2007 tour. He stated the Oasys supplied all the sounds and the other 2 keyboards he used were simplify MIDI'ed to and controlled the Oasys.

Enjoyed your track Mia...here's one I did for a Genesis tribute cd I put together but never released...if anybody likes it, I'll happily send you the whole thing for free. It includes solo stuff from Tony, Mike and Steve and is done in this style... http://soundcloud.com/davidbagsby/dance-on-a-volcano
