Help programming Moody Blues"Best Way To Travel" on MiniMoog

Hi, I'm hoping someone has some ideas on how to accomplish this. On the link below:



At 1:10 through 1:31

and again at

2:42 - 3:00

there is a beeping tone that you hear that literally orbits your head. It's the high pitched panned sound that orbits left, right, front to back and so forth.

I have a MiniMoog Voyager and currently have a reasonable attempt, but it's not quite it. I'm using Oscillators 1 & 2 very high, say 1' and 2', adjusted in volume, then using the filter controls to simulate the timbre, and the Oscillator 3 in LFO mode with Triangle to create the modulation, then using the VX-351 CV Output to take the LFO to the panning control. Resonance is down all the way, and just doing this with the OSC1&2.

I very much would appreciate someone taking a listen and offering any opinions that I may use to improve my existing patch to recreate this sound.

Thank you very much

Mac

Thanks anyway, I found it. It was a square wave LFO on OSC3 and turn off OSC2, then just add some effects.
