Hawkes pushed the limits of available technology and sequencing[citation needed] helping to forge the sound of the 1980s. While The Cars were known commercially as a rock and new wave band, he had the biggest impact on the synthpop and new wave sound of The Cars hits such as "Drive." His signature sounds include the Prophet-5 "touch sync" sound heard on "Let's Go" and "Hello Again" as well as arpeggiated and syncopated synth lines such as on "Shake it Up" and "Heartbeat City."

Didn't know they were so cryptic. Good tunes.

Moving in stereo is my late night favorite.
