As a panned aux, for effect only. Sounded cool, but thick in a sort of icky way...which was appropriate for the song

Recently I've been sending a mono bass track to a stereo delay, filtering everything below 1k on the delay and combining the signals. Seems to add power and depth to the bass track.

Nope - I LIKE the sound of a bass...

I usually only do it on rock-a-billy typed tracks with a "gut bucket" style bass (simple PCM 42 slapback), or I'll automate a send to one on the last note before a big break (usually with several other instruments) for a dramatic effect. The space echo works good on this kinda stuff.

Not for an effect however, I use a 1 sample increment delay on my Pro Tools to delay the Di to match the Amp / mic sound...anywhere between 3 & 30 samples usually does it.

I always wonder the diff between that and using a Little Labs IBP. Gotta try one one day!
