The content is simply a sound from SoundCloud, and a question asking what it is.

Apart from the SFX is actually used for on-going contest, is identification question on-topic here?

  • If it's on-topic, how should the community answer it?
  • If it isn't, is there any way to salvage this kind of question?

I think it's absolutely on-topic. It should be answered like "That sounds like the foobar preset of the frobinator synth. You can replicate it with these general synth settings."

That's very much sound-design, no?
