Hi,

This is my first thread here. I am hoping someone could help me identify what synths are used on Christian Chevalier's “Sea Bird Fly". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds sort of like an Oberheim, Juno, or Prophet synth but can’t be too sure.

I looked up that LP, it was recorded around 1978.

Since around 1978, I think a Korg PS-3300 or CS-80 or Oberheim polysynth would make sense for the poly parts, some sounds also sound like a Minimoog but not exactly so maybe an ARP Odyssey Mk. I?
Edit: strings sound Rolandish, maybe RS-202?
Lead oboe sounds like an ARP Pro Soloist or SH-2000 Roland preset.
Accordion like synth and plucks could be an old divide down synth like an ARP Omni or an organ, maybe a Yamaha D85 or E70?
Bass intro thing sounds Moogish but not quite, maybe ARP or Roland again?
