can't listen right now but generally to make a bass sound more synthy your go-to tools are envelope followers, fuzz boxes, pctavers/harmonizers and of course actual 'bass synth' pedals which some companies make - I think EHX is among them?
but yeah probably envelope follower and fuzz and/or other forms of distortion are the keys imo
Noise, bitcrushing and alot of distortion.
Add some low playing oscillator and add pretty fast tremolo (volume modulation, sine wave) for that pulsating effect. Maybe try the tremolo on both the noise and low oscillator.
I don't hear bit reduction, but maybe that's just me. I hear ohmicide with bands panned and the input cranked, feedback off. At that pitch, you'll have to tune your bass down, and you'll get that low frequency "shitting the bed" sound anyway.
Try the porrid setting on the bottom two bands and then run it through any shitty amp sim, guitar rig is great for this.

@Auto have to got Live Suite? Audio Effect Rack -> Guitar Amp Distortion -> there's quite a few racks to choose from. Some of them sound pretty cool & you can go in and tweak the devices to your own liking.
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have some time today to try them out!
I usually run my bass through a Dunlop MXR (DI+Distortion) then straight into the mixer and record it like that, for my purpose so far it has been enough, but as I'm really enjoying the bass, I want to use it in my normal sub standard production, hence the question.
@Aiki: I can't this weekend or the next one (when I might have a gig), but I think I can the following one...
