    So, I found these guys recently and I love their bass sound
    Ofcourse i tried to recreate it, but i can't get it right.. I tried reeses, modulating sins, squares... Doesn't seem to work..
    So any tips?

    here is a tune from them, i picked one, but you could listen to any from their tunes for that bass

    Squares and sines are a good start

    Try lowpass filtering the squares quite low down with a bit of resonance, modulating the volume and filter.

    A good way of getting a nice throbbing sound is to lightly distort a sine with an LFO on the volume. As it gets louder it'll clip more, changing the shape of the wave.
