Hi all. New in the forum. I’m particularly interested in the sounds used in Love is a Stranger, specially the computer / high pitched notes. Appreciate it if anyone could give any info on those. Thanks in advance.

They used the Omnichord a lot on Love is a stranger so it's probably that one. The guitar tremolo was apparently the filter/LFO on the Roland SH-09
with the guitar through the external input. The pulsing 8-note bass is also the SH-09. They additionally used a Juno-6 and occasionally a borrowed Oberheim
OB-X on the album but I don't think they were used on this song.
