Weird Pre-delay strumming pluck?

How would I go about making a pluck with this sort of layered plucking noise that happens before the actual note?
Is it just an offset delay? Or is it multiple synths all layered together that are happening slightly after one another, like when you strum a guitar and not all the notes in the chord happen at the same exact time?

I think it's just some type of delay, perhaps with a feedback and/or diffusion setting.

If you know you are going to use delay on something, you can freeze the effect to it's own track and then shift it backwards in time so that it comes before the cause. Also, you can reverse a track, then do reverb or delay, and then reverse it back.

It's probably the second technique.

Reversing stuff is a good way to get more varieties of effects.

Re: Weird Pre-delay strumming pluck?

The second one to me sounds like a delay with reverb and an early to make it sound brighter. For that I would create an aux track, add ( in this order ) an we that cuts the lows, then a delay that is a single repeat delay with a speed that setup it back a bit for that delayed swing, then the reverb. This way you have the original track and a secondary effected one so it sounds like two instruments.

The first on is two different synths to me. Both playing the same thing but with completely different tones. One sounds like a really short release plucky sound that opens up over time (longer release as it gets faster - really cool!) and the second one sounds like an analog ploy synth sound for the meat of the tone. Both have effects like reverb and delay for flavoring. The pluck might be moved forward or back a bit in terms of midi placement so there is some difference.
