hi. i posted a similar request for opinions in the amp section with a few relevant replies. i'm wondering if this subforum might be a beter place to ask this question. i'm looking for your subjective opinions on software you've used of the following: guitar rig 3, amplitube 2, waves gtr or similar. i would like to know which, in your experienced opinion, has the highest number of useable amp sims and whether you feel that they are of a worthwhile quality to use for recording purposes. i'm not looking to put out a professional cd but rather something that will work standalone or as a vst plugin for my Reaper recording software. i have an extensive collection of freeware ampsims but have found only a few useful sounds and i'm wondering which of the payware programs people are finding the most realistic and useful and if they might be such an improvement over something like freeamp3, that one would be willing to pony up the cash. please don't respond with suggestions that i try hardware modelers as that is not what i am looking for. thanks!
