Distortion bass is tricky.. I ALWAYS use a clean DI signal without the Fuzz, then send the fuzz to the bass amp (B15 or Fender Bassman). I then make sure the Bass amp sound is thick and beefy before we record..
UAD Little Labs IBP is the savior for that after we record as the amp will always be a bit behind and maybe in phase.. use the time adjust and the phase flip and phase adjust to get it as big as possible. And then, and only then add eq.
And then there's the DBX 500 "Disco" Boom Box subharmonic synth.. I use it when tracking, sometimes.. and I ALWAYS use it when mixing.
