it's just a detuned saw with filter.

Try this for VPS Avenger.

Widening the sound with Chorus and Unison will probably help.

Overall the completed track is spread wide anyway in the example, which will impact on the individual sounds as well.

Don’t be hard on yourself, reverse engineer some patches in the vst’s you have and see how close you can get, you might surprise yourself or even discover something new.

Yes Grab Spire or Avenger with a few Sawas (or Pulses with modulators) and filter them appropriately.

A lot of what you hear is that the pad is either being retriggered in a pattern or made to pulse with an envelope (maybe from a side-chain or similar thinking).
