All really good info, thanks everyone. I'll try going through a buffered pedal first.

I seem to get this steely/raspy "CSHHH" type of sound in the attack that seems really hard to EQ out. Lowering the tone control on the guitar helps but it's still there.
I don't know if this will help, but I'm getting similar transient weirdness, too, across several of the plugins. Not sure what's causing it, but turning down highs seems to help a bit. Turning off the plug's compressor helps a LOT, for me, and compressor-on presets seem to be the ones giving me the most weirdness. I also mutate the presets a bit in that I clean them up, then run my MXR Classic Overdrive between the guitar and interface. I'm really liking the tones I get with matching levels, with just a little drive added by the MXR. I mostly like cleaner sound, blues to rock, no metal.

And it's a work in progress, of course, as I always discover that I need to continue to monkey with tones that I thought were perfect. As do all guitarists.
I had similar experience, puffed the dust from my Radial Dragster, makes all the difference (with passive pickups). ... r.2219426/ (

I have Plini - only use the low and mid gains, probably should have got the Cory Wong. I find I have to set the noise gate fairly high to tame it.

Thank you again, everyone. I ended up going with Tim Henson (although I also find him insufferable) and Gojira.
