I play/record bass. Seems to me that you need a good sounding bass to begin with. Been following some "how do I record bass that sounds good" posts. Most people say they use a GR, API or similar preamp into an outboard compressor to begin with. Another issue is the players technique.

So trying to fix a bad sounding instrument sound with a UAD might be an exercise in futility. I don't have a UAD, but the only way I can get the bass right in my DAW is getting it sounding right from the beginning. I can't fix it with any EQ or Comp I have.
