Which synth is this? Maybe a Virus?

Can anyone identify the synths being used live (or on the studio recording if you happen to know) on Kylie Minogue's Come Into My World (2001)?

To me, the timbre reminds me of an early Access Virus, but I figure some of you would have a better idea.



There's a shot of the keyboard player at 13:43 and what looks like a KORG, although I realize that's likely just (used as) a MIDI controller (and a different song).

All ideas are welcome. Thanks!

I misread the post at first but the top keyboard you see is a Roland A-50, 76-note midi controller.

I don’t know why, but I’m thinking JV-1080, Nord Lead 2, and MC-303/909 were used in the song. Those were 3 synths used in this kind of music in the early 2000’s. I think JV-1080 is likely, it has that organ bass sound, and MS-2000 has it as a preset.
Edit: on the studio recording, i here definitely a VA synth, like a JP-8000 or Virus C. The strings sound like something straight off a Roland MC-505 or 909. There’s definitely a JP-8000, JV-2080, Nord Lead 3, MC-505, and something else.

Probably not a Virus C since the album version would have been recorded in 2001.
