i'm pretty new to Zebra so be nice to me
I've been mucking about and trying to get the synth sound from these two songs.
Flying Lotus uses it in Sketchbook, and 1983. It's the one that has the old school Nintendo feel to it and I love it.
1983 - http://www.last.fm/music/Flying+Lotus/_/1983
I know he uses Ableton and an M-Audio drum pad
if anybody could make it or tell me where to start in Reaktor it would work too, I know how to use it more than Zebra

If you could provide a more explicit example of the noise - last FM is not great for being specific in terms of actual tracks or noises. Maybe a little mp3 snippet or a youtube vid or something?
If it's Nintendoey - you could do worse than a Nintendo...

And yes, the quality is a little down but it was a quick LAME convert
it's the prominent Nintendo-ish synth

For starters I'd try a square wave oscillator in Zebra, width set to zero.
Add a tiny bit of noise. Put a Redux in the chain in Live, set to 8 bit. Then pay attention to the chords used.
Best of luck.
