Some sample? Some synthesizer? Someone please tell me

Thanks!! Ben
Can you be more specific as to what sound you're talking about? There's a lot of ethereal stuff going on in the background between verses.

If you're talking about that initial drone that happens when the song first starts (and lasts throughout the song) it sounds like a pad of some sort. The actual sound itself sounds like some sort of bowed/stringed instrument. It wouldn't be that hard to recreate; what DAW are you using (assuming you even want to recreate it)?
