Sliding sound that makes me feel euphoric

Hello,

I'm trying to understand how to produce this kind of sliding sound which gives me chills down the spine and makes me feel totally euphoric like if I had won $10M at the lottery.

I've shortened the audio and repeated twice the sliding part that makes me feel euphoric to make it obvious (it's around 14 secondes but you should listen to the whole to get the idea).

The track is: Capsule - Striker (album World of Fantasy)

Any suggestions apart from going to the psychologist? :D

I’m gonna assume you work ITB? The pitchwheel is usually set +/- 2 semitones, change that to +/-12. Then you can either roll down the wheel yourself while recording, or automate the pitchwheel setting. A third option is to set the synth to legato mode. With the glide/portamento activated in legato mode, only notes that overlap will activate the glide. So simply extend the length of the notes in your sequencer where you want. The pitchwheel option is going to give you much more control though, so I’d try that first. You can also assign the mod wheel to osc pitch, or simply automate osc pitch. Many ways to skin this cat.

You have a fitting username! Registered nearly 6 years ago, and now the first post :P

Besides all the excellent options that EDGEK8D mentioned, there's also this:

kiloHearts - Tape Stop

(if you're still on Windows, 32-bits: Illformed :: Home has a free one)

With synth sounds, pitch bend/automation is sufficient - but with such a plugin, you can slow the entire master (or a sub-group) down.

Things can be made easier if you record a duplicate of the track which has a slightly different sound (namely, the one with the pitch drop). Then enabling/disabling it is just a matter of muting the "stable pitch" track and unmuting the "drop pitch" track simultaneously. That allows you to handle everything with the synth's own parameters and makes composition/programming less complex.
