If you're recording DI and don't want to add a shitload of effects, then you'd need to be using a high-end tube amp.
I record through a pedal too, into Reaper, but I add all sorts of plug-ins, EQing and processing before it sounds decent.

ok, so basicly you are saying that when you record with distortion on your pedal it sucks. well then dont do that. if you can, just record clean, without any effects. then visit the vst amp thread and use that stuff for your tone.

or better yet, buy a real interface, and then go to the vst amp thread and use that stuff for your tone.

unless you have a great amp of course. which since you are using a rp255, i assume you dont.

How is your pedal connected to your computer? If you go thru the mic input of your sound card and your default Windows gain boost is checked you could be overdriving the sound card. Or are you using an interface of some sort?

Fender American Stratocaster
Epiphone Slash Goldtop Les Paul
