The reverb is really a strong element in the first video. You may be able to get close to the source sound with the above, and you could try tweaking the resonance or envelope amount to get closer, or figure out what you might want to sweep. It's worthy to note also that sometimes a sound needs harmony to really bloom, so one note of the aphex patch may sound a lot different than a chord of it. You also sometimes need to add subtle pitch variation, or accompanying intervals at much lower volume which will appear as though they are changing the timbral quality of the patch, rather than being audible as note variation/ extra notes. It's all in the details sometimes. This is just good stuff for pads in general btw.
