I'm listening right now to Deep Space from The Magazine by Rickie Lee
Jones. Great album, back from 1984. This song is just GS-1 and Rickie
Lee singing. It's a really great along-piano sound. The album has
thanks to various Toto people, so it might be the very GS-1 you have!
The song is on the iTunes store if you want to hear 30 seconds of it.

Anyway, this is getting too close to the evil DX-7 which, almost single
handedly, destroyed analog synths for over a decade.
