    Any one have any ideas how to make this synth, It comes in at around 2.26 and is a mid/high range synth.

    I can't work out how they make it move so much. Is it in the choice and timing of the notes or the synth that gives it movement. I guess a lot of filtering is going on. If anyone could give me some insight on how they think i could make a similar sound using some basic soft synths like massive or something. Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    Sounds like an arpeggiator with some other filtering after.

    Sounds like square waves run through a comb filter with a low frequency, and the classic pluck filter settings.
    0 attack, 0 sustain, 0 release, and a little bit of decay (about 300-430 ms)
    After that, it's probably run through an arpeggiator.
    Cheers,
    Arthur.
