The first synth I'm trying to figure out is the broken saw wave that starts at 0:16. It sounds like it's layered with quite wide pad (pad starts a bar before), but I have no idea how to achieve the characteristics of the sound.
The 0:16 synth is the main sound I'm interested, but plus points to whoever who knows how to make the wide bass in 1:35 without ending up with multiple phase issues...
Thanks in advance!
Sounds to me mostly like some detuned saws or a supersaw with a pretty wet chorus/phaser. That would cover the volume/pitch wobble and the relatively narrow, but moving frequency band. Maybe an envelope follower to control the mix of the chorus/phaser, but I doubt it.
As far as the bass is concerned, it doesn't sound too wide to me, but maybe I'm paying more attention to just the low frequencies. My go-to way to do that would be to use multiband stereo control and widen the top frequencies (or start with a really wide bass sound and narrow the bottom).
