Everything but the girl - missing (fedde le grand remix)

Hello everyone!

I'm having this question concerning Fedde Le Grand's new remix for Everything but the girl - Missing
The track takes off with some kind of pitched down LFO modulated phase sound. Does anyone have any idea how to create this kind of sound or maybe know which synth was used for it?

You can hear it aswell in the following tracks:

- Axwell, Ingrosso, Angello, Laidback Luke feat. Deborah Cox - Leave the World Behind (throughout the whole track, but especially during the break and build up!)d
- Grooveyard - Mary go wild (Nicky Romero Classic Mix) (during the break)
- Sebastian Ingrosso & Dirty South - Meich (at the end of the first long break)
- Axwell - Nothing but love (Classis Mix) (at the end of the first build up towards the drop)

In Leave The World Behind it's got a more noisy touch to it, but keeps the same basis ...
I've already been messing around a lot myself (telephone eq, hpfiltering, phaser) but without any matching results ...

Anyone any suggestions?

moog filter? basically, a lowpass with some resonance in it.

No. Realize that it may not even have been a synth - if you'd put this in Ableton Live and you'd automate the transpose (while the clip is warped), then it'd retain its rhythm but change in pitch. Alternatively, if you take the samples separately and timestretch each clip a few cents down, you'd get a similar effect.

Anyone any suggestions?
What do you have at your disposal to recreate this with?

First of all, use an LFO to the amplifier to make it shimmer like that. Basically, what you have to do is strip away the illusion and think of it as a continuous tone - that way it's easier. The sound makes me think of the Micro-Q where you could use a (positive or negative, kind of forgot which one is the square-ish sounding one, the other sounds saw-ish) comb filter with high resonance to add a pitch to noise.

Comb filters aren't that common, so you'd have to look in the direction of the Blofeld/Largo I guess (Massive has a comb filter, but it's saw-ish, so it's not the one you want to use).

Believe the Radias/R3 have a comb filter option if you happen to have access to those.
