How do I make this Trap rising / falling synth effect sound?

It's heard in some trap songs. I've heard young chop was the one to first design it, but I'm really not sure on that. I haven't been finding much information on it. I'm wanting to nearly exactly replicate it. Though, I'm not concerned about the water bubble noises, just the synth(s). If anybody knows how, please share, thank you.

Recording Synth output to Audacity quality issues

Hi All, I was hoping someone could assist with this issue or direct me to a thread that already explains the issue i am having. I am modeling sounds on my Korg MS2000 and the frequencies I am creating are very ear sensitive. When i record them to my PC using Audacity / Soundblaster Audigy 5, I lose the sound details i can hear with the headphones directly on the Korg. Totally ruins my vision of what I'm trying to create. I was reading I may possibly need a DI device to front end the Korg?

What is this sound? Some kind of LFO synth? Songs: Heart of a Lion & Born to Die

I am wanting to create a sound like this one. It has something to do with LFOs with a degree of instability.

[Shows itself at 0:25-0:30 as it rises in pitch and does so again a few times throughout such as 1:25 and 3:00]

There is also a similar sound in Lana Del Rey-Born To Die
