Visconti only used it when mixing some of the Heroes album, and not the title track itself."
    From Goldie's Autobiography:

    ...Mark (Mac - 4 Hero) was really open minded and he suggested we try using an HF 3000, which is an analogue harmoniser. You could say, play one note on a guitar and it would be harmonised by five notes above and five notes below. So I said: I wonder what happens if you put breakbeats into it?...

    ...The break was from James Brown's 'Funky Drummer', which everyone used right? But not this way. I started to really play with it and take it to the limit, without it falling out. It was contained within the two extremes. And it sounded brilliant - the pitch was going up but the speed stayed the same...
    Conclusion: Bowie invented Jungle.

    It was the H910. released in 1975. Low was produced 76/77. Only other notable user around that time was Zappa.
