    Two layers here. A main distorted pulse wave-ish bass, and a sub bass (on some notes).

    I suggest starting with:

    Main Bass

    • Oscillator: Medium Pulse Wave
    • Amp Envelope: medium Sustain, quick Decay and Release. This will create an attack transient, so that the sound hits hard, kind of like it’s compressed
    • Filter: Low Pass, Cutoff around halfway to prepare for the…
    • Distortion: this would be the trickiest part to match. This sound has a nasty side to it. Aggressive, and a little lo-fi. I’d experiment with different distortions and see if it gets you close.

    Sub Bass:

    • Oscillator: Saw
    • Filter: Low Pass, Cutoff waaaaay down, so you just have that big bottom roundness
    • This only comes in on those 3 notes that walk up at the beginning of each measure

    The trickiest part here will be to get the waveform + filter + distortion combination right. Feel free to post your attempt here for further feedback
