Finally something for the bassists 

Bass is commonly recorded direct, finally someone is doing software amp modeling for bass 

IK Multimedia announced Ampeg SVX at NAMM last month and it is long overdue. Essentially it emulates a bunch of Ampeg heads and cabinets, and lets you do some mixing and matching. (here is the press release in PDF) While I'm excited, I'd like to see a lot more manufactures jumping on this bandwagon. I use a GK head with SWR and Hartke speakers. I'd like to mix that sound up with a classic Sunn going through Ampeg speakers or whatever. Hopefully, this will just be the first of many announcements addressing virtual bass rigs.
