That song came out in 2006, not the 80s. The synth bass could be any analog or virtual analog synth with a 24db/oct filter.

I would say zero attack, sustain and release , short decay and the resonance about half way up or more.

Sorry, I am unfamiliar with software as I only use hardware. As I suggested, an analog or virtual analog synth with 24db/oct. lowpass filter.

2 saw waves, one set at 16', the other at 32'. Filter cutoff set about 25%, resonance around 50%. VCF attack at 0, decay pretty quick, sustain at 0. You might need to experiment with the VCF controls to get just right.

Yes, could be a number of synths... but could easily be replicated on a Roland Juno 1, 60 or 106.
Sounds like a saw wave, with a half amount of sub octave underneath. Filter has slight resonance, medium cutoff and some envelope applied, with a medium decay.

Hope that helps.
