Noob question about distortion

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

Hey guys I know this must be a really simple sound to make because i hear it in so many tracks but i just don't know how distortion is used to get this kind of sound? No matter what i try it doesn't sound anything like it. Is there some kind of technique to make it sound this way? Thanks :)

Sound is at 0.54, and occurs again many times during the track. (0.57, 1.01, 1.03)

Please help its been bugging me for ages

Are you talking about the reversed percussion hit?

It's not distortion. It's fast loop, like at 1/64 note, probably also with sweep.

You loop a very short period of sample, what is there to explain? Try it and see.

To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.
