    The bassline that comes in around 0:43 just captivates me.

    I want to make a bassline similar to this but I'm a scrub when it comes to making bass.

    What would be the best method towards creating something similar?

    Not much to elaborate on really. Detune some saw waves, play a few low notes and stick a low pass filter on. Maybe some distortion here and there, etc.
    Add some automation on the low pass frequency to get a bit of movement and development, add portamento for easier note shifts... whatever you want to do.

    Thanks for the responses, I figured it was some sort of reese bass by the way it sounded.

    Turn up the time value in the osc tab, then go to the voicing tab and change the voicing to monophonic or monorototate.

    Means you don't get a pitchbend effect everytime you touch a new note, though you might want that. I find legato best for leads.
