Trying to dial up this trashy, verb-y, modulated guitar tone like this song "repetitioner" by thus love ITB. I've tried using my ears, tried using my eyes with pro-q3 to match and analyze the eq differences, just cannot seem to get it. I've high-passed at ~400hz, goosed the highs with a shelf but end up with too much fizz, tried verbs and delays both as inserts and sends but they don't sound quite as "big and washy." Suggestions? I mean the band does not sound hi-fi in the least so I feel like I should be able to approximate with a DI?

It might be double tracked, which would give it depth & fullness you can't get any other way.  I'm not sure how that original tone was captured, but it could also be a jangly Strat or Jag into some delay or reverb unit into (most importantly) a loud clean amp that just on the edge of breakup.  It's very difficult to get that kind of result from any direct input setup.


Hope that helps!
