I don't use a Waldorf, but I have run my bass through an electro-harmonix
Q-Tron, a Peavey SPAF, and a home-made pre-amp/envelope follower driving
some Doepfer and ARP filter modules, and basically, whoever told you that
filters aren'y good for bass was full of shit. Envelope filters will give
you some of the heaviest bass around. If you don't believe me, just check
out any Bill Lasswell CD.
