    I have heard this indescribable sound in many songs ranging from danny c, to tech itch, to crossfire, and I am pretty sure its from a virus synth but thats just my guess. Anyone actually know what produces it? And also does anyone have a full length of better quality sample of it?

    The people you've heard using it will have sampled it, I'm not sure where the exact origin is, maybe a Joey Beltram record or something like that but it's probably a juno or some other old synth manipulated in a really fucked up way.

    I've attached a sample taken from Doc Scott - Here come the drums

    You'll often people calling this sound a "mentasm" as it sounds like the noise out of a tune of the same name.

    Hmmm thanks for the insight man. I always figured it was produced by some hardware every time but i suppose it would make sense if it was sampled all from one origin.

    Also, thanks for that wave file, thats a good long one.

    Cheers

    Juno x2 is the synth that makes that sample, its available in softstynth format and has a really fat chorus on it. Just click in the 'hoover' preset and hey presto

    Personally i think the sound originates from multiple instances of the hoover used in "dominator", if you listen at a very low key you can hear the desending pitch generated by the dco env which gives it that falling characteristic. It also sounds like it is teally deenched in reverb as if it was recorded on a hostile planet. I been twisting my own juno 2 sounds for years never come close enough yet.
