Flake's keyboards in live

In concert, "Flake" plays on two keyboards that he uses in studio too, positioned one in front of the other. The biggest is the Roland VR-760, (on his right when you look from the crowd), and the smallest is the Ensoniq ASR-10. Both are painted in gray so that they fit into the stage.

The portable keyboard that Flake uses is an Alesis QX49.
