I know that 'trilogy' is one of the top plug-ins for bass sounds,
the sound are awesome,
but I find myself using eq quite heavily on trilogy espeacilly at cutting specific frequencies. and i still can't get it to sit in the mix pretty good, it's either too muddy or just not right.
I'm typiclly using 4, 5, 6-heavy,6-ballad, Jaco bass, slap basses quite often also, and sometimes Synth basses and acoustic basses.
Try using an Amp Simulator if that's what you are experiencing. All the basses in Trilogy are recorded direct and an amp sound can make a big difference in certain genres and mixes to have the bass sound sit right with other elements.

I agree -- I often will use Guitar Rig 3 (for example) if I find the electric string basses in Trilogy aren't quite sitting the way I like. I usually will try that before I even touch the EQ -- and it usually works for me.
(But I'm a bass player, so I mostly use Trilogy for SYNTH basses).
