Did you use the XLR outs when recording direct? Or did you use one of the 1/4"? It's possible that the XLR and 1/4" on old equipment may not put out a balanced, record-friendly signal, these days the direct outs on amps and stuff are much much better designed and give you less fizz...

And yeah you need cab simulation to kill some of that fizzy highend when going direct, that's what a real cab does to your tone, round it out a bit and make it more pleasing to the ear..
