The keyboard has been arranged for guitar on the 2nd staff,
notes on A string are 8va bassa.  The bass sound is likely
a Moog Taurus Pedal sound (sawtooth wave with a rapid closing
filter).  The right hand melody sounds like a Mini-Moog
(a sawtooth wave with a somewhat rapid attack but with the
filter open relatively wide to achieve a string-like sound).
On the promo video Geddy plays both parts with the same
sound on a Mini-Moog.  It is clear that the bass sound
on the promo-video deviates from the original studio
recording.
