can anyone point me in a good direction to make a phat-sounding synth like here @ 0:45?

do you want a fat sounding synth in general or one that has the exact same features like in the video?
here's something i whipped up real quick for example:
it's basically some slightly detuned square waves in the low-mid range, passed through a flanger to make them wider, some compression and a small distortion to give them a harder edge. this will give you a fat sound. you need a really low sine wave to back it up tho.
for higher frequencies you could use anything like triangle, saw or messed up square waves.
boost the low and mid-high frequencies so it sounds thick on the low end and crisp in the middle.
i'm sure that a similar approach would work with professional synths where you have even more options to mess with the sound.
the one in the video has a certain Reese-y quality i think. maybe if you look for "reese bass" you'll have more luck.
