I'm trying to figure this one out of our sheer curiosity.

Original track - bassline (actually two interlocking lines - one high, one low) begins at 33 seconds

There's also the demo/earlier version here:

For the high part, my guess would be a monosynth similar to the monologue. I don't know how to embed youtube videos, but check korg funk 5, I think most of it was done on the korg monologue and there is a somewhat similar sound at the beginning of korg funk 5. Including lots of pitch bends.

For the low part, mmm more difficult... I would say a square/pulse type wave into an acidic filter. The cutoff of the filter being modulated by another osc maybe two or three octave higher than the baseline note. And lots of pitch bends or porta thingy. But it's just a guess...

I also think the track is not chromatically tuned (microtune), adding to the alien vibe coming from it.
That's about incredibly long gear list for one track!
Imagine how much it would cost to accurately reproduce it MY ASS IS BLEEDING
Impossible to know really but my bet is in Code 8.
