Load an Operator in Ableton. Pull the sustain all the way down in osc A, and set its decay to around 4 ms.
Now you have a blippy sine wave.
We can make it sound a little more metallic by modulating it with osc B.
First, change B's wave to a triangle, or maybe a square d
Then turn its level up to around -24 db. Also adjust B's course to somewhere between 3- 8, and fine, up to 100. Just use your ear to find the
tingness you want.
I put a Redux next in Operator's chain, and turned the downsample up a bit.
Then a Reverb with lowcut, like Small Hall preset; then a ping pong delay, adjust to liking.
A compressor at the end, pull threshold down to really bring out clarity.
By playing with the parameters on the devices i mentioned, i was able to find a very similar sound to the one you refer to.
It would be fun to try an Arpeggiator here as well before the Operator to really get those blips flying around.
