Lady with the Spinning Head

Hi all,
LWTSH is by far one of my most favorite U2 songs. Something about it, I don't know what it is... anyhow, does anyone know what the sequence at the beginning of the song is or what it was created on? It's got to be some kind of an arpeggio, but does anyone know exactly? Does Brian Eno do all the synth stuff or does Edge do some of it? Any idea what synths U2 used in the AB, Zooropa era?
Thx

The intro to 'Lady With A Spinning Head' is not a sequence from a synth.

It is an arpeggio on guitar using a patch on the Korg A3. The tone isn't in the unit alone, you will need the SPC-01 card.

I will have to check as to the number of the patch.

If memory serves, there is some flanging going on in that patch that makes it sound like that.

Again, I will have to fire up the A3 and find the patch. But it is the A3 and some delay.

Confirm it's an A3 spc-1 preset.
to find it try each preset while mute strumming the strings.

My A3 is on the fritz. Not sure what happened. that said, I think that patch, for "...Spinning Head" is between 77-90 (83 seems familiar....).

Something like that.
