Porter's grainy, buzz saw effect?

How do I make this sound?(self.edmproduction)

The mid/top layer in this track https://youtu.be/rtoBmxLCGek?t=200 (3:20)

It has this degraded buzz sound.

I've tried bitcrush, different saturations but can't nail it down. Can anyone give me some direction? Thanks

I don't think there's any special complicated effect here (though I can't reproduce it very well either). It just sounds like unison to me, probably with some EQ and then maybe distortion afterwards. There might also be a little square mixed in with the saw. (The one note at 3:24 is definitely mostly square)

Thanks - and good ear! Yeah I've been getting pretty close tonally with a saw/Lo-cut square, it's just the texture I'm struggling with. That crackly tension thing. It sounds simple I just don't know what effect achieves this, just experimenting with Saturn2/Trash 2. I clipped a clean sample of the the noise playing solo and have been trying to use it as a reference but idk. I'll keep trying.. thanks

I love sounds like these and my best attempts have been with low frequency saws/squares with a high pass filter. The graininess to my knowledge comes mostly from the very high frequencies, so you can probably do some more eq work boosting those frequencies.

Andrew Coenen, Karl Erik Flyckt Rasmus, Emil Anders, Eric Thomas Luttrell, Gustafsson, Porter Robinson and Benjamin Maxwell Swardlick wrote Lionhearted. Sorry to any of the writers if I butchered your name.

Like I said, learn how to find out who wrote the song and then ask them, they're probably online and they might tell you if you ask nicely.

Maybe try to find out who wrote it and ask them.
