    We agonized over the right bass sound for this track, putting it through various amp simulators and effects... but I think we've got it. Turns out it needed almost nothing--except a slight fuzz.

    Thoughts?

    No, it's very cool. You were correct. It sits in there just right.

    Nice job. Out of any instrument, I've always thought that bass needs the least processing to sound good.

    Thanks guys.

    In this case not much was needed. But in others...it is. It really just depends. This case is an important reminder, though, that sometimes what you really need is to leave it alone.
