the first two albums Reproduction and Travelogue(by the REAL Human League) 
was made with System 100 and 100m, Jupiter 4, korg 700 etc. The System700 
belonged to Martin Rushent of Genetic Studios and showed up on their third 
album Dare, which he produced. By then Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware were 
long gone.
