Pbass most likely.
Kontakt has a pbass library so they might just be using that. And definitely some compression.

I thought it was more like a Music Man Bongo 5 strings through a certain amp. Kinda like "Chic-y" Bass!

On second listen. You’re probably right. It’s probably a musicman.
Not familiar with the bongo. But stingray or pbass are on a vast majority of records.
I’d look into what daft punk has used since its very daft punk-ish.

Both sound like a loop. The second song sounds like a synth bass

The few times i recorded a Bongo it sounded very similar to some of my Warrics. The bottom end is not quite like the example. It could have been processed perhaps.

I didn’t listen to the clip but I think it’s a Precision.
