Default That glorious modern rock/metal bass guitar tone

I've been trying a few different software sims and they're not bad, but let's say I get as good a sim as there is, what processing moves would you make to it ? I've noticed a lot of bands boost that 60hz area so that's the sub bass, but have found myself the two most significant moves in the lows was a boost at 120hz where the bass gets a harder more present bass boost, and then 250hz to get a bit of those low mids up to contrast with the guitars and give the bass some of that throaty presence (and then of course a few moves in the highs for pick attack). Then some comp and transient shaping. But I'm getting avg results, not glorious yet.

I want that beautiful tight low end that sounds so controlled and tamed yet lush. How do I achieve that ?
