The actual synth is a Jupiter-6, so I suppose if you had to be exact...

Forget about the bass!

Much more interesting are those strings.
Anyone know more about those?

I seem to remember from reading an interview in the book "History of House" by Chris Kempster that a Juno-60 was used for all synth parts... and TR0707 for drums - but I could be wrong, I'll check in the book

Two square waves slightly detuned, short envelope on the filter?

Most synths can do this.

It was a Juno 6 actually, not a 60, Larry Heard says so in an interview. Stepped arpeggio to make the off beat pattern. He calls it a Juno 1 in another interview, but probably meant the first Juno to be made, i.e. the 6.

What's the point in copying that sound anyway? Can You Feel It is the winner of the song that is the best song using the bass noise in Can You Feel It award already.

Larry Used a Jupiter 6 for those early Trax, DJ International & Alleviated releases. He's a family friend and I asked him about it.

It was fun to try, but I don't have a Roland.

I think that definitely 909 was used for drums - the sounds in this song have different ride cymbal, snare and the clap not to mention the kick drum as in 707.

That's pretty good :)

I'd use a chorus on 1 oscillator instead of 2 detuned ones, though :).

I actually used the Pro-53 software synth with the stock FL chorus for that. The patch had only a square wave being filtered by lowpass.

The song sounds great though, and this is the first time I've heard it, so thanks for posting.
