Good Bass Plug-ins? (namely spectrasonics trilogy)

    I have just set up ableton live 4.0 to host trilogy as a VST in hope of using it as an audio plug in but I was oblivious to the fact that it only accepts midi data :meh:

    I guess I would need a midi controller hooked up to my bass in order to transmit data with this. I'm kinda bummed and wonder if (a) it would be worth the effort and (b) what are my options to do this and is it expensive. can I just tape a midi receiver pickup type thing to my bass or is it more complex than that.

    otherwise I'm wondering is there many other plug-ins for ableton available (audio signal friendly) that would be useful for bass and where can I find these??

    any tips appreciated

    re MIDI - I've just read up on the roland GK3 pup and the ghost piezo system........for the time being I'm cancelling MIDI from the equation because forking out for the setup costs aren't really in my interests at the moment.

    So what I'm really after is other Audio devices that I can use to shape my natural bass sound.

    hope i don't hear a "sorry dude most plug-ins are MIDI only, ur stuck with the stock devices" coming on.
