I'm working on some patches I will use during a live performance involving a 
fretless bass player
I want to use the [bonk~] object with the bass, for detecting notes

To start with it, I kept the same [bonk~] configuration messages as the ones I 
used earlier for percussion :

thresh 6 50
minvel 10
mask 4 0.7
debounce 0

Actually it works quite well, but I would like to know if some of you had an 
experience regarding the use of [bonk~] with a bass. Which parameters should I 
use ?
The bassist plays very well, with a great attack (a bit like Jaco Pastorius but 
without the chorus effect), and the bass is a Squire Jazz Bass on which the 
frets were removed

Thank you very much for your help
