The song is in the title, and here's a link to it on youtube

Any ideas??

Wondering how they made that lead sound in the drop, should be pretty obvious what I'm referring to hopefully.

Thanks!

Use two layers
One a Saw C1 low passed
Square playing G3 G4 G5

Add unison to the squares and spread etc

Add some distortion and reverb EQ etc etc and blend in the low-passed saw.
It's not 100% but it'll get you in the direction

maybe add more distortion after all is blended together. and try different distortions

OK I was wrong.
I tried it again and there's a chord in there.

now Ive only gotten in the ballpark.

I think this is the basis of the sound but I can hear other synth sounds layered through it.

The latter part of the video is f**king around to try and her the higher harmonics right but it's definitely not it. it's other sounds mixed through it and obviously post-processed with reverb and distortion etc etc etc
