RE: How to play bass track with guitar ?

My approach: don't. Buy a doubleneck bass/guitar.

Big fan of half-speed guitar here as well, though I use sooperlooper for this. I find pitch shifters tend to be be a little thin, brittle or airy, whereas rate shifting maintains a certain depth or boom.

There are three settings, but two that are more useful.
There is a straight octave, which you can use to lay down a bass
track, Phil Keaggy uses this.
Also a feature called multi or something like this which allows you to
play chords on the guitar, and you can have the bass on certain notes.
So, use an octave pedal.

 Did you have a solution to play a bass part with your guitar ?
 (I've tried with my HOG, and with Octavers/Harmonizers, it is far from a
 bass sound, even a synth bass sound...)
 Roland VG ?
 Sound to midi interface like http://www.sonuus.com/ G2M, connected in midi
 with a expander ?
 All your knowledge is welcome.
