1984 Synth sound id please '3V - Heart Of The Beat'?

Can anybody identify this synth sound please from 3-V - Heart Of The Beat?

Starts around 3:03 and I believe it's played by Dan Hartman.

Juno? Sounds like a typical 80s polysynth pad with a chorus. Could have been a Jupiter with external effects too, or an Oberheim, anything analog poly that was out then.

There's a lot of 808 in there, and the bassline could be a 303 as well.

Thanks kpatz. I've heard the identical synth sound on another very rare record too (Invincible Force ‎– Designs For The Future) , so I assumed it to be a preset. From what you say though it sounds like it could have been created on various synths with a bit of knowledge.

Sadly, I wouldn't know where to start
