Just sample, chop and and loop the intro of the song (I do it all the time
for tracks - Sweet Dreams are made of this, Separate Ways etc), and use
whatever you have to keep going when the riff is not repeating.
The Matrix won't cut through the mix for the solo anyway, not a fast enough
attack, so you'll have to use something else. That was the deal with the
analog envelope generators on the original poly synths, they were snappin
fast. As soon as they got cheap and started using software generated
envelopes (like the M1000), the envelopes (and the sounds) got soft. The
clocks on those processors in 1990 only ran at 1 MHZ. Today it's 1 GHZ!
That's one of the reasons why the VAs (and the Andromeda and Poly Evolver)
are used by pros now - fast envelopes. Plus everyone knows you don't tour
with vintage gear, it's too valuable.
Get a poly Evolver rack. They are the shit (only 4 notes though - Jump
needs 5. Oh well).
