Secret Service - Flash In The Night video (1981)
Prophet 10 = spacey lead sound & pads
Minimoog = 'sequenced parts' (though played by hand)
Linn LM-1 = drums
I just had a brief conversation with Ulf Wahlberg again (Secret Service's keyboardist) and it turns out it was a Pro-One, not Minimoog, that he used for the sequenced part and bass on "Flash In The Night".
He also told me that he used a Jupiter 8, Prophet 5 and some early sampler whose name he'd forgotten (presumably an Emulator I?) on Secret Service's 1983 album "Jupiter Sign".
EDIT: Ulf just confirmed to me that it was an Emulator I.
