Inspiring Techno tracks

I'm really loving these thick arpeggiated synth leads atm and I'm trying to come up with a similar for a track i'm working on

In the first track it sounds like its a layered shuffled groove or arp with repeating semitone shifts then occasional (seemingly random) melodic variations?

I also can't get close to the synth patches though, sounds like its a filtered sawtooth or actually something basic that has been layered with saturation, FX and a ton of automation?
Aghhh! I don't know it's so blurry to my ears - But I'd love to come up with something similar

Any suggestions or ideas would be awesome, I'm gonna be working on this track all week so I'll report back with my progress

To me there are a couple of different sounds (or more) in there and some clever use of delay/echo. Keep at it, you will get there

Probably no help with your question but I share your love of this sort of thing. This Marc Romboy track is an all time favourite. I would love to know how the arp was arrived at on this.

About that PAS track tp start with
It sounds detuned. Try a saw with osc1 tuned normal, and osc2 detuned by -10ct for example
Ad a filtered delay with low pass filter, then reverb

Experiment wih that and you might get someyhing similar, or even better, figure out something else thats awesome
