Can anyone identify where this instrument sample is from?

Hello. I have taken this sample from the song Virtual Reality by Jan Hammer. I have named it melodperc (melodic percussion) but I do not know where it was originally from. I have heard it in other media. but I have not been able to identify the source. The wav sound is provided here: Does anyone know the source of this synth?

Sounds like a Wavestation wave sequence.

Indeed - was I not clear? ;)

It's not a preset, but it's likely an edit of the standard Wave Song patch, as it has many of the same types of WS ROM waves in the wave sequence, including the spectral stuff, the muted guitar thunks and so on...

Thank you for all your help! Upon further research, I discovered that in other songs by Jan Hammer, such as Seeds and Pyramid, also use samples from the Korg Wavestation. Thanks to you, my search for the origin of this sample is done.
