If the sound you're asking about is similar to this one, then it is basically a distorted trance pluck. It can be recreated in any subtractive synth. Here's a quick a dirty guide how to make it:
That will give you a supersaw sound. There are also tons on tutorials on Youtube on how to create a supersaw sound.
Now tweak the amplitude envelope. Set it to quick Attack, quick Decay, Sustain to about half of maximum amplitude, quick Release with a short tail. That will give you a pluck sound.
Now add a distortion effect, something like Amp Tube is a good choice, and crank up the Drive knob until you like what you hear.
Load a Sawtooth waveform into both oscillators, increase the number of voices to eight on both and raise one of the oscillators one octave.
Note that in the sound I chose an example, distortion drive is automated. You can clearly hear the sound becoming more distorted with time.
