Stab sound used in "Advanced Techniques" video

Hi All… Just got done watching the advanced techniques video. Very good stuff!

My question is how the original stab sound was made (Video 04 - Stab Riser)? Was this sampled from somewhere? Or an original sound? I have been trying to figure out how to make that specific stab sound for ages!

Are there any videos on here which I can watch which detail the technique behind this sound? I know how to get the volume envelope, but I cannot seem to get that specific tone… the ones I have made sound more like a synth string than a stab like this one… Do I have to layer horns? Is there something I am missing?

Anyways… if I could get a rundown of how this type of stab sound is made, I would be eternally grateful!


its just a classic stab sample… been about for years. probable a sample of a sample of a sample of some horns off some record.

Ah, I see. Thanks so much for the reply!
