This one. You hear it after 2 seconds. One of the best sounds I've heard. Ever. And I can't even get close to recreating it. I've tried 3xOsc with a load of Parametric EQ's together with Sytrus basslines from the browser, but I still can't get the right sound. Does anyone have an idea of how this synth is created?

It was probably custom created by sytrus.

For starters, note all the nuances in the song. There's one part where the bass raises an octave and it's a dead giveaway of what to go for. It's a square with little sustain and gentle portamento on it. Sytrus has a preset that's really close to what you want (bassline square; just remove the fx knob and you got the bones of it).

I've been trying to remake the sound for your pleasure just to help you out, but I'm not all that good at that style of music. All i can tell you is that it starts off as a square wave and a low pass cut off to give it a donk sound.

Also add on a chorus to give it a good sound. Tweak it a bit to your tastes and do what you wish afterwards.

I figured out the square synth as well (that's why I used 3xOsc, with all the oscillators set to square). Thanks for the advise. :)
