I’m desperately trying to figure out the wobble bass sound in the chorus/drop of the song ‘someone’ by BAYNK (starting from 0:39 on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzGcRT2sGu8 ). I tried looking for a preset but so far I haven’t been able to find anything close to the sound. Maybe it’s a sample on top of the bass? I honestly have got no clue but it sounds bloody dope!
Any help would be very much appreciated!

I love this bass. Try this:
Oscillator 1: Square wave. 2 voice Unison with a mild amount of Detune to smear the tone. No Width on the Unison.
Oscillator 2: White Noise
Oscillator 3: Sine wave. Set this up to bypass the Filter and Effects. If your synth doesn’t have that option, then use a second synth.
Filter: Low Pass, 24 dB. Low Cutoff to create the round bottom-heavy bass tone. Decent amount Resonance. To be modulated by…
Filter Envelope: This will create the whipping wobble sound. Zero Sustain, with a really quick Attack (60-70 ms) and pretty quick Decay (360 ms). Give it a generous amount. Then, you’ll have to tweak the White Noise volume, Filter Cutoff, Filter Resonance, and Filter Envelope settings to get the whip just right.
Second Filter or EQ: This should process the Square and Noise oscillators only. Use a Highpass to remove everything below 120 Hz. Why? Since the Square wave has unison, it’s bottom end will be unstable. Sometimes it will be heavy, sometimes light, which is no good for a bass. So we remove it altogether here, and allow the Sine oscillator to maintain a steady low end
Compressor: I set the Threshold to apply about 6 dB of compression and left the other settings as is. But you can tweak to your liking
