Q

What processing do you do on your lovely rich basslines? Any effects? Bass amp simulators? Perhaps if you would be so kind you could describe the fx chain for a particular track, eg Adrift in Hilbert

In general, "compress, then EQ, then compress, then EQ, then compress, then EQ..." and so on until it does what you want it to. I don't have a typical fx chain because there is no typical route to a satisfying bass.

With bass lines in particular, you can get most of the way to a great sound by picking the right notes and playing them like you mean it. The equipment influences the last 5%.
