Been trying to make this Justice bass sound for about 5 hours now. HELP!

As the title says I've been trying to make this sound at 0.38 seconds in.

YouTube - Justice - Genesis

I've seriously tried EVERY distortion I have available (all of logics distortions, reason 5's scream 4, izotopes trash) and I just CANNOT get anything to sound even remotely like it.

It seems like all these distortions sound **** to me anyway =/

Tried changing the waveforms around when the distortions applied. I'm about ready to rip my hair out, like i said nothing sounds even SLIGHTLY like it.

(you can see this is srs buzines because im using caps lock)

Can anyone even give me a starting point?

Sounds like a Korg MS20 to me..no external distortion..just the sound of itself overdriven internally, the way only an MS20 can! At least you can see why they are so sought after
Good luck recreating that..I've never found anything to quite do it..
Maybe buy a Korg Monotron and circuit bend it??!

maybe although i dont think they used much hardware :/ So annoying I can make most synth sounds but when it comes to distortion im a complete flop, its unbelievably frustrating too.

Well tried it and failed as to replicating the exact sound from the song , came close at times.
Sexy song though, one thing that makes it hard to replicate is that what you hear is a mixed release, its not a pure patch that you load up in a synth, it perhaps has a huge fx chain, ah well my two cents.

You kids, you think everything is about synths. In fact synths are used much more rarely in dance music than you would think.
Who told you this ****? It's all about sample for this kind of music.

It's justice, they don't use synths much at all. My guess is it will be a sample which is why it sounds a bit like a synth. Maybe some distortion and then a filter in a synth like manner.

If you do a tiny bit of googling you'll see that most of their sound comes from sampling.

If you want to imitate the sound, your best off finding the original sample. Here's the one from the intro



Also look around here-

I can here a real bass sound layered in there somewhere. It's not just about the sound but the timing as well.

I think its a sample, but if You want to recreated with a synth than Phoscyon of D16 - with overdriven preamp knob setting - would be my safest bet. Or the real thing heh

Here for the gear
 

sounds like a 24db highpass filter being automated with an overdrive effect.
