        Mostly the decimator/bit reduction sounds (preset 20 iirc).
Assuming we're talking about what I think your talking about ;-> 
Steve is also making some video game noises in there as well, so
it can be hard to tell whats what at times ;->

        The rising tones is mostly from what I was playing
(bowing a metal rod aginst the string and slowly sliding it
up and down the neck). 

        The string swell sounds seem to be some variant of
"slow" effect + pitch shift + multi tap delay. The delay
is a little easier to hear when you quickly play something with
a lot of attack (and therefore, defeating the "slowgear"
style effect).
