    You mean the ultra hich frquency filter noise, right? Or is there another sound you have in mind. Can you give any examples of the sound your looking for?

    the squelchy "acid techno" sound. i'm not big on terminology, but i was refering to the sound you get when you turn up the filter cut and turn down the pitch.....i hope that makes sense. :meh:

    most envelope filters will give you that squelch sound.
    I know my deep impact can do it- but you have quite limited control over the way the filter opens, so you won't be able to emulate the peaks and warbles of a 303.
    I used to have a korg g5 which enabled you to control the filter with a seperate expression pedal. This is the closest thing I can think of off hand.

    A combination of other things may help you- I'm pretty sure a synth- wah- fuzz combination would get you close the sound you're after. Hope I'm not pointing you in the wrong direction- I'd really need to hear a song with the sound you're after to give you more accurate advice.
