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?
Yes, actually! I hear the XV-5080 is pretty similar to the JV-2080, though... Since I don't actually own the 2080/5080 (some incomplete sample libraries I happened to find for the 2080) I can't make a complete verdict, but yeah, I have a good (by that I mean horrible) feeling that there's a lotta Roland gear used in the good ol' Mario games.

The top keyboard in one of those photos look like a Yamaha VL-1 to me, by the way.
