    What was used on Kanye West's 'On Sight'?

    Though the song is divided among people who hate it and people who like it. I am one who really digs the sound. Not really Kanye's rapping, but the sound and the pattern of it. And I am really curious what was used. My thought's are a distorted TB-303 and 808 kicks synced up but that's just a guess. Does anyone have a better guess, or actually know what was used? Thanks!

    I love how infamous the track is. Much deserved. It'll stand the test of time.

    Is it just a sine wav sound with distortion on the Jupiter 8?

    they just used the weird cross mod thing on it with a pulse wave and a saw wave. for the other part after the intro, they might have used the pulse width with the envelope maybe.
