I am working on some electricity zaps for a spell and have always wondered how these iconic zap sounds were made. I own some quality newer electricity libraries, but none of them have this zap sound that we've come to know. I pitched the audio down two octaves and noticed there is a synthetic like tone that is part of the makeup of the sound effect.

What do you think it could it be? I have tried synths but so far no luck.
