i understand this is sidechained.

but can u guide me to a similar bass synth preset i can find?

also if you notice at the end of each bar the bass synth drops like...sliding down, its a cool effect, i need some guidance on that too?? how its done to sound like that, is it as simple as pitch down or is it another technique? tape stop or whatever thats called?

It sounds like a fairly basic saw sound, probably played at two octaves to get those overtones and lowpassed. I don't know about presets but I tried something quickly in VPS Avenger. Processing is some OTT @ 30% wet and Sugarbytes WOW with the "Rejecter" preset (that one is awesome for basses):

To get the slides I just drew in some pitchbends in the CC lane. Make sure you reset it back to zero at the start of each note (red circles):

I've never used it, but Xfer records has some pretty good paid plug-ins (like Serum, for example.. Cthulu also good). They actually have a free OTT plugin that maybe you'll want to give a whirl:

I know Deadmau5 works with Xfer records on their plugins.. not sure if he's a partner or something.

Yeah, the Xfer OTT sounds identical to the Ableton preset.
