how did he get that bubbly/watery chord sound?

hey guys,

i'm new to the forum and tried the search option but nothing adequate came up... i heard this "bubbly/watery" chord sound on the marcel dettmann's track "lyrate" and was wondering if anyone of you knows how it was done?
i suppose it could be a quick, closing filter envelope but have you got any ideas on what kind of synthesis technique/waveforms was/were used?

I really appreciate your help!

it reminds me a bit of a multi FX type in the V-synth. no that it is made with a V-synth. but.

hey muser,

thanks a lot mate, a band pass delay makes sense!
have you got a clue what synthesis technique he might have used?
i can't seem so get the sound from (filtered) saw/square-waves...
maybe combined with a pitch envelope?

Not sure. ask a separate Q on GS on how to make this sound. I've heard it before, it's a common sound. can't remember where. I think I've even come across it as a sample somewhere too.

btw, I think these band pass delays are also multitap.. each with their own delay, pan and band pass.
sometimes they might feedback into the other bands as well. so you get that repeated shaving off of lows etc.
