How to make synth drop?

An LFO that affects the pitch of a sine wave is one way you could achieve it.

You could also get the same effect using a synth with a portamento/glide setting. Play the note you want to start with then play another note an octave or two higher.

I'm not sure what synth was used on that record, but the effect you hear was most likely done using the portamento function.

I do no think Doc will make a YouTube video just for you. If he does, kudos to him But just try his suggestions and experiment, he set you on the right direction. With some experimentation and the will to make it happen, you can.

I doubt that this is done with portamento. To me it sounds like a played slide cause it is not a linear raise of the pitch but notes.
It's a playing technique that was used on organ in the late 60s early 70s in Rock Jazz and Funk.

No, not going to make a tutorial as there are many on Youtube as is. I would also like for them to experiment and see what other kinds of cool things they can discover.

It does sound a little like that, but that's why I suggested the LFO routed to the oscillators pitch. To my ears it sounds like a smooth curve up to the higher pitch and not as stepped like a slide sounds when going from note to note.

You could manually adjust the rate on the LFO, or you could route it to the Mod wheel and do it that way too.
