The pad alone in the first 33 seconds (which is then joined by a string pad but continues to play the whole 9 minutes). Maybe I'm using the wrong synths but I don't think subtractive or fm gets that level of ..."smoothness".

Is it granular? Every time I have tried granular so far seems to crash my daw.

I have answered my own question. Yes. Should have looked into this long ago.

Love Patrick O'Hearn. E.g. his album Glaciation.

Anyway...

Maybe try this free granular synthesizer VST:
