    if I am using protools and running bass direct...is there any plugins that you guys would recommend to get the best sound? It's acoustic driven rock....thanks for any knowledge you can pass along!

    Try a tape saturation plugin like Magneto
    and/or something that provides tube-type warmth.

    I record guitars and bass with a Korg Pandora PX4
    Multi-Effects unit which has an assortment of amp heads
    & cabinets & use Cubase SX' TrueTape saturation VST.
    The bass has great warmth and sustain without being muddy.

    A Korg PX4 is about the size of a pack of cigs.
    & they make one for bass alone. Hope this helps.

    PSP VintageWarmer, UAD-1 Pultec and Fairchild, NI Guitar Rig 2 (Ampeg emulations). Highpass the sub frequencies.

    i like the psp vintage warmer as well.
    Trash by Izotope isnt bad either if you want a software amp sim.

    i second chrispick. cut out some of those sub freq. it makes a big difference.
