comment How could I recreate this particular synth sound?
With this type of question I refer people to an excellent little book called " Walsh's Synthesizer Cookbook" does an excellent job of explaining how to synthesize sounds from scratch.

comment Chord number notation for a minor song switching to a major sound
when we're talking about the relative minor, it makes more sense to reference the major key. But when you're talking about other minor keys that don't have a natural key signature, then you can use the root of that key as the reference point.

comment Fifths of #9 chords
Whether you alter a specific tone depends on context - it depends on the tonality, which is established by the surrounding chords. So it's a bit pointless to talk about a single chord as if it stands on its own.

comment The teaching of scales, chords and keys
It all boils down to reharmonization. If a note that is not in the key sounds good in a particular context, it's because that note belongs to a chord that can be rehamonized at that point.
