Hey,

I'll be starting a new job in the begining of January, working out of camps and will be unable to take my amp I was wondering what would be the best solution for sound quaility, will have my laptop/headphones and would like to continue playing guitar with a decent sound if possible. Decent budget available, see last.fm for musical style.

Any suggestions would be great.

Cheers.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

(Assuming you're on a budget)

Line 6 produces the "Tone port"...

I comes with some corny, but very fun/useful software for digitally modding your sound...

(Effects, good eq, fun graphic interface for your computer)...

The interface/input itself can be very simple and is made for USB input.

Any of the above...

Toneport or Guitar Rig etc for PC interface

Vox Amplug or Line 6 Pocket Pod for direct headphone playing

Roland Microcube for a portable amp
Actually called Mark!

NOT guitar rig.

Peavey released some software called Revalver mkIII recently, and with a decent custom impulse (cab sim) it sounds nigh on real. The feel isn't quite there, but the sound can be absolutely fantastic with a tiny bit of processing.

http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/rate-my-mix-tone-threads-413/ Keep an eye on that sub-forum.
People post a lot of good stuff where they used Revalver up on there.

Peavy gear looks decent, anyone used it?

Is it a complete package or do I need other software/hardware to get it going?

I have a amplug, not sure which one but I don't really like the sound I get out if it.

A mate recommended this: http://www.zzounds.com/item--ZOMH4 (Zoom H4)

Any thoughts on that?

Thanks for the replies.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Leaning towards either the revalver or GTR3, but can't seem to find the GTR3 anywhere in Australia.

Sorry for the stupid question but, do I need additional hardware/software to go with the revavler package?

Cheers.

EDIT:

Reading the manual cleared a few things up, ideally I need a digital audio interface to go with it, any recommendations?

Cheers.

for a digital audio interface, look at M-audio's stuff.

I have the Vox AmPlug Metal and it is great. No it doesn't sound like a boutique amp, but it sounds a lot better than it's $39 price tag would suggest.
