I was wondering on how to get the "JUMP" sound....

What kind of keyboard do you have? (Ed used an Oberheim OB-Xa, by the way...not that you would need one of those.)

On a synth or software synth, you could start with the oscillators set on saw wave, then just tweak the sound with the various parameters and controls until it sounds right to you. Some keyboards also allow you to download sound patches or samples to them, so perhaps you could find a patch or sound on the Internet and do it that way.

Also, the Arturia Moog Modular plugin has a Jump preset on it.

I've been looking at keyboards, I've messed with them, so before I buy I want to find the one that can do it.... I would love to get my hands on the one ed has.... but thank you kowski

I know I'm dredging this thread up from the past, but thought I could shed some light here. I have an Oberheim OB-Xa and there is good news and bad news about recreating this sound. The good news is that it is pretty easy to get close to it. The bad news is that it is impossible to get it exact unless you have an OB-Xa. Nothing quite sounds like those old analogs, they are just so raw and ballsy. I recreated the sound on my OB-Xa, and you should be able to get close on most modern keyboards.

You will need either an analog (or virtual analog) synth with two oscillators capable of generating sawtooth waveforms (a roland JP-8000 would be great for this); or, a more modern keyboard with at least two oscillators (samples) per voice and a sawtooth sample (lile a Triton or Motif or Fantom or any number of ROMplers out there).

Kilroy:

A while back someone tried to tell me Ed also ran the OB-Xa through his guitar rig for some slight added "punch." Does this sound right to you? I've often thought "Jump" sounded more like a line from the synth.
