Yes, I'm a huge fan of Like a Prayer album and think it's absolutely magic piece of work - very solid arrangements, performance, mixing and composing (too bad Madonna doesn't involve Patrick Leonard too often nowadays).
As for the bass part on the title song of the album (excluding the simplistic remix from the Immaculate Collection), yes it looks like a real bass playes steps in at 30 and then at again at 4:12 (I suppose it was Randy Jackson). The synth sound probably comes from some recent workstation of the time, like the Yamaha SY-77 or the Korg M1.
