I wonder where this information came from? If it's from the comment on the 1Up interview, I'd say it's wrong. It looks more like a Roland JD-990 (aka Super JD) than a JV-2080 (compare the buttons between them).

Speaking of which, I made a list of most of his gear, based on the pictures from the 1Up interview:

Roland XV-5080
Roland SC-8850
Roland VP-9000
E-mu Proteus (3 out of 4 total versions made, not sure which those are in the photos)
Roland Super JD-990
Korg 01R/W (module)
E-mu Morpheus
Novation Supernova II (module)
Studio Electronics SE-1
AKAI S3200

Does anyone recognize the keyboards in the photos?

I'm shocked how well Hamauzu sliced and utilized that sample... Actually, I'm not even sure where the hell it plays, but I know it's in there (I've extracted all of the samples from the in-game track). If anyone figures it out, I'd love to know. I doubt it's the "main" ambience, because there are about 5 ambient samples in the track - and they're all fairly similar.
Turns out that was used for the ambience at about 0:13 (among other places). I found out by replacing the sample in the PSF for the track with something more obvious. Again, I'm amazed how well he put it to use, I seriously cannot reproduce it.
