    been noticing in a couple of tracks that the reece (i believe thats what it is) is a sound that seems to increase and then quickly cuts itself.. is it made in a synthesizer or is it an instrument with loads of effects on top or something? some examples are in the intro of melanie and open page





    thanks ;)

    You mean the sound in the intro? If so, its not a reece.

    Its just a pad with a slightly longer attack and no release. you just need to time the length of the attack to match the tempo of your track.

    that make sense?

    the shape of the sound is controlled with a filter (the increase then cut off you mentioned), you can do it with anything, the intro to Melanie sounds more like a pad made up of diffrent saw shapes than a 'reese', although thats what a reese is too on a basic level

    You could also just make your sound like normal and reverse it
