Love your post man.

I listened to the Joe Ford one just now again and I would say he's using a band pass filter with some LFO or macro on it. When the band pass sweeps up to the higher frequencies, it sounds like a bit of bit crush is coming on to it as well. I'm sure he is using another filter with it too - maybe a band reject or double notch.

He's also EQ'd it to get that honk sound - possibly within massive by using the EQ boost and boosting it around 250 to 300 Hz. But I could be totally wrong.

He posted this about a year ago, I think he's used it in just about every track since Behemoth.

Obviously seems to be a macro attached to Scrap Yard, but whatever else is a bit more mysterious to me.

This is the closest I've got, if you'd like to know what's going on let me know.

Yeah man, bandpass and phase were huge for getting that "Vwom" sound at the beginning. The real tricky part is that his seems to have so much variation in where it can go other than the vub vubs.
