I am thinking of getting a computer guitar recording device, since VSTs are usually free and sound great. It's seems better to spend 100 dollars on a clean recording device than a pedal with a single effect.

What are some good free VSTs that you found?
Can be anything. Distortions/Overdrives, reverbs, echos, pitch shifters, ANYTHING that gives great effects.

I'll list some myself.

Aliensolo - Monophonic synthesizer, pretty effective
TAL-reverb - Amazing fully controllable reverb, can make it sound really thick.
Buz-Maxi3 - Good limiter that you should tack at the end off all effects.
Voxengo Stereo Touch - Makes your sound inverted to make it sound really wide, and has a delay, making it sound double tracked or something.
