    Can you identify this synth patch from 1970?

    I'm trying to identify - and find! - this synth patch/sound from 1970. It is used in a song based on a poem by Arthur Rimbaud, by a singer from Quebec, Robert Charlebois. Here is the video of the song. You can hear the sound I'm referring to as a sort of "bubbling" Moog sound (Solina?) at...
