Recreating Timbaland synth?

How do you recreate the synth stab sound at 0:37?

I have a pretty decent idea of how to make something like this: saw type of sound, little or no detune at all, short attack, medium-short decay, no sustain, some release. I cant seem to get the sound however, I just end up with some regular saw lead which isn't that similar actually.

How would you recreate the sound?

Cheers

Re: Recreate synth?

Someone wrote this in the comment section of the song:

"The synth makes it sound really old school, like songs you'd listen to when you were a lot younger, but it's hidden in a modern sound. Synth has that strange 'semi-nostalgic' quality i think."

Thought that was interesting, and I agree with him. Maybe that can give you some direction for the ones thinking about this.

Start with a few detuned saws in three different octaves. Then highpass it all to remove unwanted lows. Then add an envelope (with some decay) that controls a lowpass filter cutoff:

I added drums and a bass underneath it all.
