It's a synth sound or sample more likely.

Why?

It's a synth sound or sample, but it has some characteristics of a distorted guitar timbre (slightly distorted, lots of harmonics).

Nothing to do with a piano, or with any particular type of controlling keyboard.

Not really, it doesn't have any samples that are in the ballpark, and doesn't have distortion effects.

Ya definitely not a D50. It's from a sampler, that's for sure. Same sound for the main riff here:


And I remember hearing it on some other house records at the time.

It reminds me a bit of those distorted guitar samples in the Emu library

Sounds like a sample of a distorted guitar power chord.

Like what Ozric uses in this track
