The Eurodance Instruments and Tools

In order to summarize our previous chapters and also to make sure you get close the classic 90s Eurodance sound please pay attention to the following image:

For leads/pads/strings I recommend the following synths: Roland D 50, Juno 106, Jupiter 8, Roland U 220, Roland JD 800/JD 900.

Of course you can add extra instruments and sound effects, but I will leave that to your personal preference.

This is the last post this year so I wish you all A Happy New Year!


  1. Hello Nick,
    thank you for your work here. I like the eurodance-style. It was the music of my youth in the early 90's and a great inspiration for me to make my own music.

    A question to the instruments: do you use a special one for the pads? For me its a problem to find the right pad in every song. :-)

    Alternative to the LATELY Bass i use an FM Bass. (Original by Yamaha DX7, i think). And i like to use Arps like in songs of Culture Beat (Got to get it/ Anything) or Real McCoy (Automatic Lover)

    Greetings, Mike from Germany

  2. Hello, I've updated the posts regarding the pads, you can use any of the famous 90s synths.
