The basic idea of the sound is like most lead sounds I've heard since 1995 - first filter the oscillator with some resonance, the put it through distortion to make up for the harmonics you've lost. Modulating the cutoff point of the filter makes the distortion crate different harmonics every time which makes the sound interesting.
Regarding this sound in particular, I found that using 1 square oscillator at 67% PWM has the most effect. Put it through a SER6 lowpass with resonance at 31. Then finally through a soft distortion (FX1) in full amount, 33% drive and 67% treble boost. To loose the artifacts caused by pressing two keys at once change the key mode (common tab) to mono 1. This sound is also heavily modulated in the song so if you'd like info regarding the modulations please say so.

hey,first thank you so much for your reply and help.
i tryied to do what you wrote,but the result wasnt even close,so my guess is that im doing something wrong,just not sure what...
is there any way you can show me in more specific how to get that sound?
and about the modulation,i would love to know how to do it,so if you have the time to explain that will be great.
Thanks again for your help

OK, this is the basic sound:






And these are the modulations:

The first LFO is in charge of a slow and small change in the cutoff frequency that makes the sound interesting, and the second LFO is in charge of the rhythmic LFO modulation, that is "turned on and off" by soft knob 1:


"Off" is the middle position in this case. Also the sound sometimes bends down using the pitch bender.

Here is a really quick and lame demo of the sound

thank you so much...
i will do that to see what result i come out with,from the demo i heard in your soundcloud i think it needs another layer if im not mistaken?
like when your pitch goes down its almost creating the same effect as in the original,not sure if it needs maybe another pitch or more distortion...what do you think?
and thank you again for your time and effort :)

Feel free to change the distortion to whatever suits your taste. It could also be that the whole production around the lead contributes to how it is perceived.

i understand,thank you for your info and time..
and also about the modulation part of the track that you talked about,should i do it from the TI like u wrote or theres a different way?
i also wanted to know,what did you do in the demo that made the sound goes owwww,like every end bar of the lead it sounded like a pitch sort of...how did u do it?

You're welcome. There are many ways to modulate - you can automate VC controls from your DAW, you can send MIDI control change messages and route them trhough the matrix, etc.
