Where do I start?

Ok... I'm gonna assume it's a saw wave or something very similar. Seems too aggressive for a square or triangle and it's definitely not a sine... probably a multi oscillator... maybe 3 saw waves. Spread them apart by detuning them. Sounds like the detuning has a long envelope on it too so it may only move from 2 - 3 semitones difference over time but I think that's what's giving it that width and development. Distortion. Definitely some sort of saturation goin on there. Probably been EQed a tad. Some sort of filter has been given the same envelope timing as the detuning with a little wobble half way.

The pitch has also got and envelope or automation on it to make it drop in pitch.

Cut the bottom out from about 250hz and below, whack a single saw underneath it all with the same pitch automation/envelope.

Repeat with a sub(Sine wave, pitch env/auto)

probably add a flanger or some sort of phasing effect too. And perhaps a notch filter

Maybe try copying the synth (resampling) and pasting it 0.07s behind the first, then the phasing will go by itself, and you dont have to do all weird with lfo or anything

Thanks guys, Ill play around with these suggestions and see where it takes me. I just needed some general directions to get nudged in the right direction and I got it! And thats a nifty trick about the resampling to phase it. Thanks all!

This is how he make the sick sounds... have fun and get it as an example how to look for wicked sound even on the last place where you could think to rip it!
Doesn't exist only synthesizers! A microphone is an essential friend of a producer!
