That's the one my reply was about, I think - synthetic wind chime is
a good description..

Still sounds like an FM sound to me - modulating one
or more oscs with one or more others at a more or less
harmonically related audio frequency, then lots of reverb.

There is a slower modulation going on in there too - might
be envelopes or lfo modulated vcas on the modulating oscillators
working to change the timbre.

I associate it more with FM synths like DX7, etc., than analog.

That'd be my guess anyway.
