HELP!! How to make this sound

Hey guys if anyone could help me find / create this sound. It appears on may techno tracks

Re: HELP!! How to make this sound

you can create something very similar on most synths. Try sine wave, short attack, shortish decay and short release, tweek cut off freq and add delay and some verb. If i get time i will try and make it / or i might have a similar sound as a preset somewhere.

Re: HELP!! How to make this sound

W/o even listening to the example, I’d bet you can follow chrisHA’s formula and try a square wave too. Also, I’m a 1000% not trying to be a dick when I say this, but...

...honestly sit and critically listen to that patch. It’s pretty simple. I’m far from a sound design genius and am not always good at listening and recreating sounds, but this is a super simple one. I spent a long time running to ask a forum or spending a lot of time digging for tutorials on how to make basic, bread and butter sounds in different genres instead of listening critically. I learned a lot more, a lot faster getting a little frustrated doing it on my own than always instantly turning to google. Really don’t mean to offend, just some advice.

...and having listened I’d say chrisHA’s got it, try a square for a little more flavor.

If you do manage to get the time that would be great, I did already try those suggestions.

Thanks in advance

Re: HELP!! How to make this sound

sounds to me like the important factors are a LP filter with high res with the cutoff modulated with an envelope with a quick attack (but not 0ms) and quick decay with the sustain at pretty much 0dB. there is also a juicy wet reverb on it that adds a lot.

the oscillators sound somewhere near a pulse shape to me, so that would be a good place to start.

edit:

forgot to mention the envelope controlling the pitch too. it has 0 attack and quick decay and pitches the oscillators up quite a lot, as you would do with many percussive sounds.
