The instrument in question might actually be two different ones, but I really need to know what it is. You can hear it on two of the tracks here:

(you have to scroll down...)

It's used on the solo for 'Playdown' (starting around 2:00) and on the main riff for 'Happy Most of the Time' (around :06). It sounds like the same instrument to me, but I just can't tell what it is...

My guess was something similar, a keyboard or synth possibly. Can someone confirm that and/or suggest what effect could be used to get that sound?

You have some basic wave forms in synthesis. But I believe this is an edited square wave. If you have a synth you just need to experiment.

My guess is it's an analog synthesizer. Or a simulation of one.
This.

I'm not really good at synth programming, but I think it sounds like a square wave?
