What synth sound is being used in this song? I've attached a small sample. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I don't know what synth but it's certainly one oscillator in sync with the other. It also sounds like the syncing oscillator is modulated with an lfo or a wheel or something.

It has a small built in speaker type sound like a Stylophone, though it obviously is not that, but if you ran your synth quietly through a small speaker and miked it up it would give it that kind of timbre.

It's also two notes most of the time I think (either that or the first synth note is just ringing in my head the entire time). I don't think it's a polysynth however, but just two tracks. You should be able to get similar out of just about any subtractive synth that has sync on it (which most do..)

Sounds a bit like one of the smaller Casio Casiotone keyboards from the 80's.

Interesting thoughts, I thought it might have been an old Roland Juno myself...

It sounds remarkably similar to the "Cosmic Flute" preset that Casio use in their budget synths.
I have a Casio MT70 kicking around here and it is pretty damn close.

Could you post a sample of the Cosmic Flute sound from your Casio so I can compare them? Maybe I need to get one of these keyboards?

I'm pretty sure it's not a Juno and probably a Casio of some sort.
