OT-ish Question: Name That Synth – 1981 Edition

edited September 2017 in Off-topic

I'm looking to recreate the synth sounds (string pad and chimey lead) used in Blue Öyster Cult's "Veteran of the Psychic Wars."

I suspect this will be an easy job for the keyboard pundits among us; my main instrument is guitar, so I'm looking to all y'all for some assistance. Thanks in advance!

  • Great record, my 2nd favorite BOC album (Secret Treaties being tops).

    I remember reading some tour diaries by their roadie from the late 70s-early 80s period and IIRC he talks about the vagaries of keeping their Prophet V up and running during a tour - mentions stopping off to have it serviced in NYC.

    This doesn't necessarily mean they used a Prophet V on the album - it could've just been their road workhorse - but it's a clue.

    Mine is another vote for Secret Treaties.

  • This is where I got my clues from:

    The contributor there I'm referring to is Sam Judd, a former roadie.

    It's coming back to me now, I concluded that the poly synths used on the Fire of Unknown Origin album were most likely Prophet-5 and OB-X based on a convo I had with some synthheads and what was actually available at that point in time.
