No distortion.... the distortion on the bass is the effect of driving the input of a reverb very hard.

Thanks DC. Was trying to achieve this in the box, hence the experimental technique.
Need to get analog gear I guess...

can work itb box if you use an outboard reverb and use spare soundcard i/o to pipe it in as an external effect.

How about Mad Professor's bass?
There's some sort of a phaser/filter on the bass it seems...

yes dc, but you also dont need to go the whole outboard route with mixer and such....

mp... some type of envelope/auto filter... might be a specific one as they certainly dont all sound the same way.

Greetings, I posted a small audio sample https://soundcloud.com/positivevibes/knbasssample you can hear the effect on the bass 13 seconds in.
Though I used the effect lightly on this track.. is that the effect your speaking about?

It's true that it's originally done by overdriving the input on a reverb , however with a lot of playing around you can get a similar effect in the box.
I spent many months playing with reverb plugins and different effects... The effect I use on my bass time to time is done by adding a filter, a quality distortion plugin and then a spring reverb plugin. I group them and put it on a return channel.. of course it's not going to be as "wet" as using hardware.. I am happy with it though :)
