I recently caught Bootsy Collins live at a festival with full band. There was another bassist holding it down most of the time, and the bass sound on the front of the house was just HUGE, bigger than any of the other bands. I was a bit far and couldn't tell if the huge bass sound was Bootsy's or the other bass player's, but I'm pretty sure it was the other bass player's, because Bootsy was mainly filling in and playing with fuzz, etc.
I'm wondering if it's that dbx subharmonics processor? I just couldn't believe the amount of low end and how low it went.
Wondering if there are here any hardcore Bootsy fans that might know what that secret sauce was.
