I am in love with just about every sound in this. I want to try and write some stuff like this.
Help me with verbage so I can look stuff up:
Is this genre Drum n Bass?
What do you call these kinds of Bass Patches?
Is this a standard drum beat?
I looked up the album and it says it came out in 2009, but I would call this more of a "older" bass sound, am I wrong?
Help me make the sound:
I think there are probably about 10 or so different bass sounds in there rather than one. Do they have names that will help with search terms?
I'd like to start working on the one at 1:28-1:32
I think he uses the same again at 1:56 - 2:00 with some kind of added overdrive?
Any tips are appreciated.
I use Komplete 7.
Playing with Massive now and seeing what I can do.

Resampling resampling resampling...processing processing processing...and dynamics, clean mix, but distorted sounds...this should be everyones goal...the bible..

If your looking for that sound it's going to be hard to replicate it without hardware. As they used lots of bass layering, the EMU6400 Ultra (its filters are incredible), an Access Virus (pretty much the standard at the time), and utilized the overdrive from the mackie desks (as OP stated). Plus, they are at the top of their game.
There's a couple of decent tutes on youtube that may help you out. Have a gander for Icicle's C.M. master class. It will give you an idea of how it's done in the digital realm - He's not quite in the same league, but it's still a great insight into the genre.
Another class tune form the early years:
Here's Fracture and Neptune talking about some of their production processing with the EMU.

Same processing as old virus and Bad Co. I just started making tracks again, and am now using mainly all logic with plug in's..the hardest part these days is finding a good distortion plug in that sounds like true analogue grit Warm and pleasing squishy squelchy fuzz, but old tube modeling amps such as waves, and the Overtone DSP's Pultec 2TCa is the shit.
I stopped making dnb in 2006 because the masters just making clowny shitty tunes, really jaded me with the overall quality of new tracks being released, not proper serious hard dark sharp funk with calculated destruction and melody, and mid range that's not overdone. Ed n Op fiinally did 2 sick ass tunes though, i think in 2011...Ride the Beast, and Crackball. Dom is coming back hard too, and I'm back in it to win it. Time to bring back the real dark funk!

You can definitely make greats tunes in the digital realm. No doubt about it... But I still agree with Fracture and Neptune, that the best overdrive you'll get is from the makie. And I've yet to hear anything that can compare to the Emu's filters in the digital realm.
