    Anyone have any ideas on how to create that old school stab sound in defcom 69 by total science? It's in the build up before the main drop, it's the 3 short stabs which is then followed by a reesey sounding bass.

    Cheers!

    It's odd, it almost sounds like there is a high-hat in there too. Ive tried experimenting with some triangle and square waves, de-tuning them, adding a filter, distort and then reverb but I can't get it to sound right.

    It could be because further on in the song, it has a couple of stabs in a lower pitch which sounds slightly more hoovery.

    I'll have a play again tonight and experiment with pitched up hoovers, see how close I can get.

    Cheers
