Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise Bass

Anybody familiar with the bass synth used in Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise?"

I don't know what they used, but the moog minitaur can do that sound easy. Same with the slim phatty. It sounds like just a saw wave filtered, with maybe a triangle or square wave mixed in on the 2nd osc.

There's two basses. The sample uses an upright bass. Then there's the bigger bass sound which can be made through any synth with two or more oscillators. Doesn't sound totally pitch perfect so I'd say your looking for real deal power suckin' tone generators for the exact sound.

Weird Al, haha.
Forgot all about that dude.
People see him live???
He is talented and got bars.

I thought Amish Paradise music wise was pretty exact.
