is it just me, or do all you have trouble getting a half way decent sound out of amp modeling software (amplitube, guitar rig 3, etc.). the distortion sounds absolutely terrible, and overall the sound is just so dampened, you can hardly make it out. i use stealthplug and have tried plugging into my amp, and into speakers, but either way the tone is garbage.

yer right on the money. i say wait a generation or 2 with the digital modeling technology, it's ahead of it's time in a bad way. soon home computer's will have enough processing power for intricate simulation software in high definition sound. you can already see a shift in the recording software plug-in arena. they have these phenomenol cards with mulitple processors, each with multiple cores, just to reinforce your computer's processing power so that you can run 2 or 3 plug-ins. wow! it cost a ton too.

in 5 to 10 years it'll be guitarists with blue tooth style wireless interfaces going into computers that run lines out to the PA or something. and it'll sound great. it'll be different.

sometimes it's also the speakers you use...please please PLEASE don't record and/or mix with stock computer speakers, they are NOT set for the correct frequency ranges. I am getting some studio monitors next week from work to start using, and I currently was using a set of stereo noise cancelling studio headphones with a 10hz-30,000khz range and the sound is quite good. You still need to tweak the heck out of some of the presets, but I'm using a Line 6 1st generation Toneport GX and cubase, and it's coming out quite good. Just try with a really good set of headphones and see if there is a difference. I found it helped mine sound far less digitized, but it's all about experimentation. Home recording for instant awesomeness is taking pre-recorded patches in garageband or sequel 2 and copy/pasting the bejesus out of them - don't be that guy .
