Synth for trap beats

I am currently looking to buy a synth for around 500$ which would be good at doing that really dark/under water felling often used in hiphop trap music.
Sounds which often dont have much (if any) high frequencys even though it sounds like they do.

I have been looking at either Moog Mother-32 or Waldorf Pulse 2 but I am very open for other suggestions in the price range.

Thanks in advance

Any synth with a lowpass filter can do that mellow type lowpassed sound. In my opinion 4 pole filters are better for the trap sound than 2 pole filters. Another option would be to get an external filter (e.g. vermona filter lancet or Waldorf 2 pole) or use a filter plugin in your DAW, then you can use that with any synth or softsynth (or workstation, or sampler...).

Look at a used Roland JV-1080/2080/1010 or Roland XV-5080. The Roland Integra 7 is nice but i think they sell for more money.

Here´s a video on how the "under water" effect is made (no matter what synth)

Drakes producer explained exactly this in another video.

What DAWs are you using? The built in synths for reason and logic can do wonders. If you have maschine massive is also a nice synth to have.
