    As with many of these kind of sounds there are probably many routes you could take to come up with similar results. I've been trying to make one similar for ages (I assume you're talking about the brassy stab sound like a pitched down 'mr happy' similar to the one used in 'streethawk'.

    I think it may be quite difficult in massive because if I recall, you can do FM modulation. I use z3ta+ and have got fairly similar results with this recipe:

    couple of saws (different waveforms to give more detailed timbres in the high-end),
    have one saw that is being FMed by something like a sine or triangle wave.
    detune them, but not so much that you get that sort of phasing hoover sound.
    using quick envelopes, mod the FM amount (this will give it the attack)
    then using envelopes of a similar speed, mod the cutoff of a LP filter

    After this, the real character will be defined by splitting freq.s and applying various different distortions.

    Yo, here's something I knocked up in reason, it's a bit ropey, but I only had a couple of minutes. You should be able tweak it and maybe get some use out of it.
