I'm sorry, but with that clean sound it's not surprising - I mean it sounds very muffled, and your strumming technique doesn't help. You can't expect an amp plugin to do magic and transform that dull sound.

I would suggest you start with your guitar settings. A DI-input box would also help. But foremost: more clarity and fidelity will let the plugins work better.

This is very subjective, but what are you using as interface? Are you plugging your guitar directly into your mic in of the computer or do you have a dedicated box like a Fast track or a scarlette solo? What type of room treatment do you have if any? Are you using speakers or headphones, and what quality are they? All of these things, with playing technique will help you tune in your sound.
