Yep, pretty much use any decent synth you can find for sounds in those sections. Some simple ideas to try for musical feedback buttons: Load your synth. Choose a preset. Find the main amp envelope and adjust so ADSR all on zero. Raise decay till you have a quick bleep. Adjust the ADSR of both AMP and FILTER envelope of synth. Always keeping the ...
