Stenosis Bass?

It could be a number of things, from the Filter inside the patch, to added Distortion from a Plug in or hardware... there's really no telling. It also depends on the type of Synthesis that's producing the sound, most sounds are made with Subtractive means, but Granular Synthesis can produce gritty and distorted noises dry without any external effects.

PM the artist and ask them. :)

Layer any midrange reese with a sine bass and add the saturator on the mix bus. Then feed the saturator more with the volume of the sine bass layer, than with the reese.

White noise? or some noise of some desript and distortion. Trash is brilliant for getting these tones to stand out.
yeh i'll chime in here and give trash a shoutout too, there's a lot you can do in that plugin, and if you put in some time in, you can get some really cool and unique results from it

YEs you just need to layer some distorted pink or white noise or some HPassed sound with plenty of high harmonics on top of your low layer and then use multiband compression on the bass bus to get the high sitting nice but not too harsh. THere is also very subtle movement on the top layer which makes it roll nicely with the drums so you could automate some chorus or whatever on that noise layer or light sidechain it to the snare and that.

There are plenty of good free distortion/amp simulation/exciter/saturation etc vsts out there from third parties who have their own algorithms which can have nice results when combined so you don't need to buy expensive ones unless you can afford it.
