The bass kicks in, I think its a phat bass, I use the preset Phat Bass from Korg M1, and it sounds quite similar, but when I put my track and this track at the same time I dont feel the same bass, something is missing.

Do I need to tweak any special parameter or add another layer?

Have you applied any EQ to your sound? I can't hear any layering going on here so I reckon a bit of EQ will probably get you where you want to be.

Sounds like a simple saw wave with lot's of chorus, and filter with a relatively fast attack envelope. Well, and then some eq after taste...

Extra info
Used three unison saw waves with detune on both synths.
Listening to the original again, it maybe could use two more detune voices and more width :-)

No, unfortunately not
I could try to make the patch on Synth1, which is free

Hi again

Digging a little deeper in the patch i found out it was not as simple as it seems.
But i think i managed to make a pretty good replika with Synth1.

I "borrowed" the audio part from the Youtube video and imported to Studio One
The original song beginning is without bassdrum and synthbass, so to work on the patch i put on a bassdrum, and my own bass part there.
So, the first 19 sec. is the Synth1 bass until the original kicks in at 20 secc. on my audio clip.
Hope you can use the patch, it was fun to do :-)

I have been waiting audio clip
