Re: My obsession with a synth sound...

The arpeggio part sounds like two separate parts, panned left and right, just simple mono legato lead lines with some portamento - it's a very simple monosynth lead sound. The part to the right is arranged in a higher register, but I think it's the same sound (on a quick listen).

It's not a complex synth sound at all, like I say a standard one or two oscillator lead sound with a fairly open filter and some portamento (which gives the glide between notes) - you can get that sound on just about any synth that has portamento. And the rest is in the arpeggio arrangements, which are kinda Jordan's thing...
