A tad loud in the mix, but I love it Ibanez GSR-205 with TSE X30 + impulse for grit.
Friend brought his Ibanez over so I could intonate and set the action and all that jazz. Sloppily recorded this
Track 1 - DI with highpass at 40 into cla-76. It's routed with no output. Just using it to pre process before sending to the 2 other tracks
Track 2 - SHB-1 - 8x10 impulse - high/lowpass between 40hz and like 500hz - limiter
Track 3 - eq highpass 100hz - TSB-1 - 4x12 guitar impulse - compressor - high/lowpass between 800hz and like 6khz - limiter
Bus - big scoop at like 1khz - limiter
Here's one from our new album - seems pretty distorted, but it's really good (imo) for cutting through the heavy guitars
This is just a rough tracking mix, but this is my Strinber Clb-25 through my RAT and my MXR M80 bass DI+ (distortion from the RAT, the mxr is for Eq, for that extra throatiness)

Bought a 6 string from Rondo for under $200.
What's going on in the processing? That low end on the first clip sounds like I've been trying to achieve.
Ignore the clickbait title
Also Studio Devil VBA Pro

Nice, that "bass low" is really adding something.
I do minimal processing to my bass tracks. Only TSE BOD with blend at 75% and everything else at noon and the common high pass trick to 60 or 50 ish. Second track is always some high gain amp liek TSE X30, high pass at 500hz. No limiting or compression.
It's not too bad I guess.
Thinking the new Elm Street album I'm currently mixing will be a good contender for this thread. We ran a B7K into an Ampeg head/cab, mic'ed up, no reamping. Very old school.
In the mean time, this one isn't 'my' bass grit per se, as Ola dialed in the distortion, but I think it nestled into the mix quite well after we cleaned up the guitars and made space for it to do its thing.
Trilian, sounds weird without the guitars but it definitely adds some nice mid range to the mix with the guitars on.

maybe not the best one but i love the crunch on the distrtion of B7K
The Emissary plug in gave me some very pleasing results for bass grit and distortion, been struggling for years to find that bass tone that I like which cuts thru the guitars. I simply dialled out the bass n treble on the distortion channel and increased the middle to full and it was really effective and a massive break thru for me. the low end was handled by the AT3, three compressors not doing very much in front of the SVT pro head and just play consistently!
As Emz mentioned before, Ola does indeed get some very good bass tones, you can hear these if you have access to any of his raw files.
I still love Ezmix 2 thordendal patch for a fat distorted bass.
This is awesome! Is there more music from this band?
Here's some bass tones that I've done for my yet unreleased stuff:
Thanks! I'm in the process of writing a few more tracks. Hopefully I'll be done by the end of june
Little update from me.
Here you can hear what I'm doing step by step - from RAW bass to almost-full mix.
For now, it's my personal fav heavy bass tone style
As you can hear - Ignite Amps FTW
(Icem4n's DI; Molot Comp; TSB-1; SHB-1; NadIR; ReaEQ; VOS TDR SlickEQ)
This is one of my favorites I've produced:
Think it just was Fender Jazz, Ampeg 4x10, Beta 52 and Ampeg Head with TS9. The bass tone is all about the player. Same rig can sound totally different with someone else!
Found this old one in my dropbox. Ampeg 4x10, Dual rectifier head Beta52:
