"Jarre himself routed the signal from the synth heavily saturated with the Electro-Harmonix flanger pedal and possibly a chorus effect". Actually, it's not saturated at all. The RMI is simply routed through an Electric Mistress flanger pedal (Electro Harmnonix). I successfully recreated this patch on both UltraNova and AN1x. It's not THAT difficult to make, if you know HOW achieve it.

You will never obtain the oxygen chorus sound with this synth. As far as I see it's based on sinewaves. The RMI synth is one of the nastiest additive synth... I've played with one of them (one of my friends used to have a repair shop). The RMI is full of logic gates and shift registers. Instead of sinewaves, it uses Walsh/Hadamard functions See http://electronotes.netfirms.com/AES2.PDF these functions provide harmonics far above 16. If you use wavetables, it won't be too difficult to replace the sinewaves with Walsh functions (but you will have to take care of aliasing).

Did anyone find the exact preset for the Oxygene 4 chorus?

Not yet. The Oxygene 4 chorus is quite difficult to achieve. Jarre himself routed the signal from the synth heavily saturated with the Electro-Harmonix flanger pedal and possibly a chorus effect. A good starting point is to listen to the version on "Oxygene - Live In Your Living Room" It appears that Jarre has left the output from the RMI HS totally unaffected. You can tell that this is the basic tone used to create the chorus.

Thank you so much for your reply, I'll try to recreate that tone seen in that video and then I'll try yo add the effects you have suggested!

A top notch emulation Tom! Well done!A very good additive synthesizer and from what I can gather quite close to the original instrument. A few Jean Michel Jarre fans will definitely find this of interest especially those trying to recreate the Oxygene part 4 chorus
