Sounds like sine waves, so any synth with sine waves. Modulate the pitch slightly for a bit of vibrato. If you got Ableton, use Operator and if you use 2 sines, detune one and the 2 oscillators 'beat' against each other for that warbling effect

The track is made in the pre modular era of him, where he used only hardware with some plug ins.

He used everything, not only vintage and expensive!! Enjoy yourself to be you and don`t copy or re-create sounds from other artists. In that case your are just a bad fake. Some would say romanian style.

They're chromatic chords. It's more about the notes rather than the patch imo. I'm sure you could fiddle around to get it in a fm synth.

Here's the midi file;

(a friend of mine did this a few years ago when I asked this exact same question)

Edit: Wrong!! see below

That's close but it's not what the progression is, the last chord isn't just an A-B-C-D, it's F-G-A-B-C-D. They're diatonic chords, not chromatic - the latter would indicate they were not scale related, which they are :)

It goes: 1:A-B-C.......... 2:B-C-D.......... 3:A-B-C-D.......... 4:F-G-A-B-C-D..........

there's 4 chords not 3. Also there's an E in the bass so you could think of the chords as being from A minor scale. They're all closed voicings which gives the it a distinctive soft tone, that and of course that they sound very sine-like in quality.

You can try a patch made on a synth with a self oscillating filter too, you get almost sine like sounds which can be tracked to keyboard so you can play chromatically. Also, if you've ever used electric piano and taken off all the overtones until you are left with an alomst sine wave sound, you get similar tones that way too but to me, they're just sine waves either way
