The Pluck or Pizzicato created by Faithless in the track Insomnia is based on the sound of a plucked string with filters and reverb. Faithless has launched the sound and Sash! has popularized it with his track Encore une fois. It becomes a cliché of the house in the late 90s. The sound of a pluck synth has a pinch of joy and lightness and makes you startle. The notes are lapping on the water like a flick. The reverb adds a scary effect on the sound.
