Just got a regular bass gig. I have a bass I'm very happy with. When I played last week, I just did bass>tuner>radial di box. It sounded fine. I don't think I'll be delving into too many effects. And I don't want to go overboard with buying a bunch of stuff I don't need (already do that with guitar). The only think is there is a volume difference between lower notes and higher ones. And my finger picking technique is not as even as it could be. So could a compressor or eq smooth things out? Anything else? Or does everyone manage to do ok with nothing but tuner? The genre is contemporary pop/rock/dance stuff.
