This sounds quite smooth, dense but not too thick.
Just tried your setting, sounds good indeed. Anyway it seems to be different to the "original" Supersaw that is included e.g with the new JP-8000 Osc in Diva.
The Roland Supersaw is based on 7 Saws with the center at a higer volume. In DUNE 2 this could correspond to using the"Linear" mode (which concerning the space between the Saws and relative volumes of the Saws seems to be the closest), a density of 7 and amoun ("AMT") of 90.
With Detune of 60% and Spread of 12% (like yours) this seems to sound OK but fine tuning is needed maybe. The original Supersaw did not use any stereo Spread AFAIK.
Will try to do a direct comparison with the Supersaw in Diva ASAP.
Of course also the choice of the filter is imprtant for the final sound. One of the "Clean" modes should fit better here IMO.
In the Roland Supersaw also some HP filter seemed to be invloved. MAybe this could be emulated using the additional HPF in the Effect section of the Filter (with routing "Effect" in before "Filter" using drag & drop).
Just did a first comparison with the JP-8000 ("Digital Osc") module in Diva and the setting i mentioned (including the additional HPF) seemed to be very close already while nailing that sound 100% seems to quite difficult with most synths.
I also tried 7 Saws with a Gaussian curve but this seems to sound wrong.
