I much prefer the sound of fingerstyle, especially for the music I currently play (rockabilly). However, with certain songs I want to play much faster and I find the pick is the only way I can obtain the speed I want at this point. I have found a way to make a regular pick sound fairly similar to fingerstyle. Granted it definitely isnt exacty the same, but its alot more like a fingerstyle sound than a typical pick sound. Utilize a Behringer ADI21. Set the blend to maximum, bass to 9:00, the treble to 10:00, the mid to 0, and the mid freq to 10:00. This is the best 'bass pick' sound I have gotten that sounds less like a pick and more like fingerstyle. Of course, feel free to experiment with other settings, but the blend at max is crucial. I have tried to use an eq to get the same result, but you really require the blend of the ADI21 to take the edge off the tone. I havent tried this with the sansamp para driver, so I'm not sure if it would sound better or worse. Better I'm guessing. Anyway, works for me.
