Do you layer your bass?

Just wondering if a lot of people here layer bass sounds to make them fatter, bigger, etc.
And if so any tips?

I don't do that, it'll contaminate your mix, but it depends how you'd do that anyway!

I like to use Scream Tape & some Body by taste, also I like to use Pulveriser, much!

it depends on what genre im making, but on bass heavy songs I personally usually layer a sine sub underneath my bass line to give it more 50hz oomph. and sometimes, If my bass is also acting as my lead, i will parallel process the fudge out of it too make it larger and more full.

I've done single-bass tracks and tracks with layered basses. My latest has four basses layered; sub bass, sawbass, wide bass, contrast bass.
It all depends on what sound you want to achieve.

Tips, LPF/HPF and volume are your friends. Give each bass their own space and cut/EQ accordingly.
