I'm trying to determine what the instrument and melody is filling the background, starting from 0:38 to 0:48 in the following song:

It sounds like either a string or wind instrument but I can't place it. It repeats at 1:51 and ends around 2:01.

The purpose of identification is to find recordings containing similar themes.

    When an electronic music producer makes a song like this, they often open up a list of hundreds or thousands of possible instruments to play with a midi keyboard. After playing the part and adding effects, it may never be possible to find out which specific instrument they chose, let alone which devices contained the instrument as a sample. If this song were played live with real musicians and instruments it would be much easier to determine. – JacobIRR Sep 22 '20 at 20:40
  • Fair play. An approximation would be fine, and identification of the melody is also still welcome. Thank you for the clarification, @JacobIRR – Ahmed Tawfik Sep 23 '20 at 9:41
