Key Synth Attributes:
Subdivisions was originally recorded/performed by Rush's Geddy Lee, on an Oberheim OB-X, so ideally you want an 8-voice polysynth with round robin voice allocation, and a SEM / Oberheim 2-Pole Resonant Filter.    In this example, we're using the PolyBrute, which has 6-voices, so the voice stealing behavior will be slightly different, and the PolyBrute has a Steiner 2-Pole resonant filter, which can get in the same ball park of sound. 

Oscillator and Mix Settings:
Mix two Sawtooths together, roughly equal mix into the 2-pole filter.   One oscillator tuned an octave below the other.   

Filter Settings:
Low Pass 2-Pole Mode.   Resonance at about 1/3rd.  Filter Key Tracking Off.
Filter Envelope.  Very Short Attack, 100% Sustain, Long Release - Decent amount of Envelope Amount added to Cutoff

Amp Envelope Settings:
No Attack, 100% Sustain, Long Release (though slightly quicker than filter), around 30% Voice Stereo Panning

Effects:
Medium chorus + light delay + a healthy dose of reverb with relatively short decay

Vintage Voice Modeling:
This PolyBrute patch has been designed with custom voice component modeling to give curated offsets per-voice to osc tuning, filter parameters, and the VCF Envelope attack and release timings.   Similar techniques can be done on Rev2, Deepmind, Moog One.   Sequential's Vintage Knob can be used to get this type of behavior in a macro knob.  Dial in to taste to achieve that vintage sound.  For more info about Voice Modeling see:  http://www.VoiceComponentModeling.com
