Not sure how you'd do it on a DX7, but if you have a monophonic analog, you'd set the filter cut-off low around 25% or so, filter resonance around 50%, filter envelope mod close to 100%.

Re: Synths used on this cartoon?

Are you sure the first one is FM? The second version is either DX7 or D-50, or possibly M-1.

Re: Guitar Amps
