    Sytrus is good for rolling basslines in FL. you can lay down one long single note and pitch bend it. Click my soundcloud link at the bottom of my sig and listen to the track at the top called shadows of the midnight sun. The rolling bassline in that was created using sytrus.

    you could come close if you ve got a reece sample you can loop, turn on portamento and then lowpass so theres almost only sub left
    wether you make the reece sample yourself or not is up to you.

    the spectrasoul bass sounds more like the wobble is produced by detuning at least 2 waves because it changes with the pitch.
    the gnarly bits come from a different bass sample imho.
    i'd try the reese method subfocus explained in a tutorial vid for the first one.

    if i remeber correctly it was like: take 2 sinewaves and detune them +/-30 or so.
    your lowend gets very wobbly and inconsistant. that's why you hipass the two waves.
    add a third sine as sub (of course routed to a different filter), bus it together with the hipassed waves and have fun with your bass.
    a bit of portamento + saturation, mess around with different waveforms, res, cutoff etc. i think that could get you there (y)

    for the second bass i'd try what logikz said.
