So, working on a little project I'm calling The Great ASS! Aka. The Great Amp Sim Shootout!

Comparing 6 top amp sim bundles against each other:

Guitar Rig 4
Amplitube 3
Pod Farm 2
TH2 Overloud
Peavey Revalver MkIII
AcmeBarGig's HeadCase

I'm about half done with it. Its comparing 2 clean amps (AC30 & Fender Twin Reverb), 1 Medium Gain (Marshall JCM800) & 1 High Gain (Mesa Boogie Roadking). It came down to those mainly because all 6 of those share those amps and their pretty commonly used. I've got the clean ones done, gonna get some sleep and then do the other 2. Should have it up by Tuesday Night at the latest. Not to spoil much, but the results are interesting so far

The problem I found is that, except for HeadCase, nobody has all 4 of the ones I'm modeling. Since these 4 are the most commonly used amp sims across all genres, it makes the most sense to compare these.

Fair nuff.

Just to be a bitch I'll point out I use LePou's Engle clone and infact use none of the amp models listed xP

I think your bitching is fair and I'll meet you halfway. I'll do 6 for cleans and throw LePou's Marshall & Mesa clones in for the higher gain amps. If LePou did a clean amp, they'd be right in there.

I've found its a tough test to do. The only real logical thing I've found to do is set all the amps to 5 on everything since it should, in theory, provide similar results across the board. I could sit there and EQ and tweak till it sounds good to me but then it comes down to what I think. Also, it doesn't allow for "Oh, you hate X sim, you made it sound bad on purpose" or made one sound better on purpose.

I think they do do a clean one. I've just never needed to use it.

Alright Boys & Girls (if you guys haven't chased them off again like you guys did with TechnicolorType), tomorrow comes the Great A.S.S. The clips are 90% recorded (gotta do HeadCase & LePou for high gain) and almost ready to go. To hype it, here is the official teaser picture:



See you guys tomorrow morning :p

Edit: Supposed to be 7:30am :p

Any recommendations on what the best amp sim for this type of music would be? Might try Vandal if no one wants to respond, seems like it gets a decent variety of sounds. Biggest thing for me is I don't want it to sound stale and lifeless like most metal amp simulators, if you know what I mean.

Honestly, interested in anything close to what these sound like. I know they vary, but I don't want to be too picky.

With that style of music the organic quality is part of the sound so it's gonna be a hard one. I'd perhaps say headcase, it is one of the best sounding Sims I've played, it sounds more alive than most. If not try some of the free ones?

That's the thing, it's so...lovely, and warm. Really want something similar. I'll try headcase perhaps.

So, I found this PDF after doing a bit of googling. A good read for any of us having problems with just getting amp sims to truly shine: http://www.harmonycentral.com/docs/DOC-1652.pdf

That and I just wanna remember it for later :p

I've always done this (by using the Lecab lowpass and highpass filters). The difference is night and day.

So, I'm considering redoing the Great A.S.S. since now that I got my new DI box, it cleans up the signal and makes quite a difference. That and finding a way to make it a more neutral test since obviously, with the JCM800's, some only had a classic setting while some only had a modern setting.

Hi i got a line 6 pod ux1 that comes with pod farm 2. I want to get a better soundcard with 8 inputs. The problem is that i cant use pod farm 2 or the pod farm 2 vat plugin when the pod isnt plugged in. Is there a way i can use pod farm without the pod? If not is there any similar free vst like pod farm? I also got a pod hd500, but i often like to add effects and stuff after recording. Please help me! I use reaper btw.
