can someone help me recreate the synth in the intro? I think its a layer of 2 synthpatches and a rhodes.

I agree. Two synth layers and a Rhodes. The synth layers are the same patch, but with one small tweak. Try this:
Oscillator: Pulse wave, with a pulse width that’s just shy of a full square. We’re going for a flute-like timbre. If you have a flute waveform that may be better, but an almost-square pulse wave should do nicely. Double and detune it with just mild detuning to smear the sound a bit.
Voice: Mono, Legato, with a bit of portamento. Pan it to the right.
Amp Envelope: Quick but subtly noticeable attack, around 130 ms. This helps create a soft flute-like attack. Long Release.
Filter: Low Pass, 24 dB. Bring the cutoff down to around the midpoint. You’ll need to tweak the cutoff when adding the filter envelope and LFO in a minute so don’t obsess over the setting yet. If your synth has a Drive option, turn it up a bit to create some nice saturation.
Filter Envelope: Quick attack, but a little longer than the Amp Attack, around 230 ms. Long Release as well. Just a small amount to create a subtle “wah” attack.
LFO: Modulate the cutoff with a fast triangle or sine wave. Very small amount, as we’re going for a very subtle auto-wah sound.
Reverb: Hall size, a decent amount of wetness.
For the second patch, pan it to the left, and bring the filter cutoff down a bit.
