Is this a moog model D?

Skip to 40 secs. Can a Mogg Model D do this sine sweep? If not what do you think it is? From the Rocky II soundtrack in 1979.

It's a very basic sound with very little filtering going on, so a lot of synths could produce that. Just a raw oscillator sound with glide up to the note.
That song was also in the first movie (1977) too. A Minimoog is a good guess, but it wouldn't be necessary to get that sound.

That's portamento of a monophonic synthesizer with oscillators in octaves - and it does sound very like a minimoog. It could be another synth - but I'd be close to certain it's a minmoog.

That sounds really mini D-ish. (What a great movie, btw).
