Hi, I have tried to recreate this sound but had no luck so far, so I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on recreating this detuned sound,

Sawwave-Lead with pitchbend-automation should work ;)

Not sure off the top o' my head on the synth's texture. I can't tell. Some good things to try would be a gentle filter envelope with a bit of attack time on it so it sweeps up and down slightly per note. Another thing you could try is adding a very quiet second oscillator transposed up or down by a 5th(+7/-4 semitones), or perhaps moving that up or down a further octave. Chorus might also be going on, its worth checking out.

However, the pitch stuff I think is maybe due to an LFO placed on the oscillators' pitch, cycling up and down by maybe a whole tone or semitone, synced to the rhythm, 1 cycle per beat perhaps. Add generous portamento as well, and that gets you towards all the pitch sliding.

But I don't think the pitch was particularly automated.... That'd be a lot of work on the artist's part, and I don't get the impression this artist would put much work into that end of things.
