'In the Flesh' - anyone identify the sound?

In the intro to this song (about 40-ish seconds in) there's a sort of flangey/filter-opening kind of sound which I just can't identify. There are Hammond sweeps going on as well so it's hard to pick out, but it's definitely there.

 

Anyone know what this is/how it's done?

This is what he used on The Wall :

 

The Wall (1979)

Hammond B-3 & C-3 Organs /with Leslie 122 Cabinet

SCI Prophet V Synthesizer

Yamaha C-7 Acoustic Baby Grand Piano

Rhodes Stage 73/88 Mark I Electric Piano

Farfisa Accordion

 

So i guess Jim's right, it has to be the Prophet 5.

If they would have used more Farfisa accordion and recorded a few more polkas Pink Floyd would have more appeal to me.

Yeah... umm... thanks for the input, Reid. :facepalm:

 

The sound you're hearing is an ostinato pattern played on the Rhodes through various outboard gear... I'd have to dig through my old notes to remember what fx/settings I used at the time I was doing the Classic Albums Live gig.

And Sven, a rhodes, huh? interesting...I was invited to one of those Classic Albums bands a few months ago here in Florida, too bad i don't have the time nor the gear i want right now.

I actually get a great approximation of that sound using my FantomXr. I don't use an ep-based sound, but it really nails it and cuts through a very dense, meaty electric guitar.
Hitting "Play" does NOT constitute live performance. -Me.

Like Tony, I also have a great "approximation" from my Roland module (V-Synth XT). Mine's more of a buzzy saw lead with portamento which I sweep between root and fifthon each chord. But after hearing that youtube clip, you definitely hear a random arpegiator or sample and hold type of thing going on.

 

Either way, that sound is not meant to be omnipresent, but more of a texture behind the guitars I find.

 

As for Sven, are you sure that rhodes through outboard gear isn't the comping during the vocals that you're referring to?
