bass distortion

Hi i'm trying to recreate a sound from the nexus examples. Dit omdat je de instrumenten al weet van te

I really like the "drive/distortion" that has been put on the bass in this example
youtube slash watch?v=Qp0M8uE


Now i've tried every eq, drive, gain distortion out there and it just wont sound the same

Can anyone tell me by ear what kind of effect is on the bass.

Cause it sounds like distortion/overdrive/gain, but whithout it becoming "muddy".

I already a lot with the eq, but it seems as though there is another effect.
I dying to find out what this effect is because it sounds really cool.

Re: bass distortion

If you want distorted bass without losing definition, run it in parallel like on an auxiliary send or double tracked carving out the eq to make room for the clean version to cut.

Re: bass distortion

When I distort a bass, I like to take the bassier frequencis out with eq or a high pass and have an sine wave playing the bass frequency without distortion with the distorted bass. No muddiness with a sine.
