Hi! I wonder if anyone could help me out with making this stab, it sounds like a square-wave to me but I can't get my square-waves that thick and dark.

It begins at 0.08:

Thanks in advance!

Do you mean the synth tom?

If so.

Use a square wave and set the a envelope to control the pitch. Set the attack to around 25%
Set to amount high and the modulate it to get the effect
Also modulating the pitch env decay and release times will help.

That should get you the rough sound.

Thanks! But could you be a bit more specific, I did what you said and it sounds for fram alike the sound I'm after. I'm using Sylenth1, would love it if you could give a bit more described way of achieving the sound! :)
