I'm just wondering....maybe I'm wrong but it sounds to me 100% analogue...could it be probably a Moog?

sounds very much analogue to me.

definitely single oscillator, square wave.

sounds like zero resonance, low cut off, and he's tweaking the attack of the ADSR. so the second time that last note hits, it fades in.

SH09 would get you this sound (to name one of the cheapest synths that will get you a nice square wave bass tone), with processing.

i reckon the sh-101 could do that. square wave with a touch of chorus/reverb and manual tweaking of the attack.

He's on soundcloud why don't you send him a message and ask.. most people aren't as secretive as boards of canada and will actually answer. Lest you think I'm kidding. I actually got answers from two people Bibio being one on some production stuff he had done.. what mics and interfaces.. and he was pretty forth coming which I appreciated.

but the rubbery square wave type bouncy bass is definitely roland sh101 territory.

i would also second SH101.. mentioned the SH09 because it's a cheaper alternative, and by no means inferior to the 101, if you take the sequencer out of the equation

That bassline isn't in the original track, only the Jupiter Jazz remix. It might be a Novation Bass Station...

A DSI Mopho will get you there for a measly £120 via eBay!

Yeah I know it's good....but I was looking at the MS20 mini too, the Minitaur, the Doepfer Dark Energy....I wouldn't go mysefl for a vintage synth as I don't want any maintenance issue in the near future

I know you can do that with a softsynth (Diva or ACE better than Logic ES1)....but a real hardware synth has a fuller sound expecially for basses.

You can get pretty close with Trillian, using the SH-101 square and a LP.

The first two notes in the figure sound more like a saw, and the high note at the end of it sounds more like a square. So its possible its actually two separate sounds playing the bassline together. Pretty much any of the analogs mentioned could do it, but you might have to record it in two passes. I do this trick live a lot by flipping the waveform select switch on my x0x b0x.

To my hears the timbre is not Rolandish, and i have a few ones..
More into the Moog territory with chorus.

Btw a nice analog synth will give you a great square wave as Goldenbeers said.
