I'm looking to buy virtual instruments, mainly guitar, bass and drums sounds. So I started looking, and found this:

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Steven-Slate-Drums-Signature-Drumkits-Platinum-Edition-Drum-Suite-106063225-i1434720.gc

and this

http://www.guitarcenter.com/IK-Multimedia-AmpliTube-3-Amp---FX-Tone-Modeling-Software-485361-i1511657.gc

So basically, what I want to know is, can Steven Slate Drums do metal, rock , and even jazz? Or is there another software that does better, around the same price (up to $300).

And can Amplitube also cover those genres well?

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

Guitar Rig works excellent for me, as well as EZDrummer, but I would probably skip EZ and go to Superior Drummer if I were you. THAT is one hell of a program.
Gear:
1987 Charvel Model II
2010 Carvin ST300C
1990 Charvette 100
1991 Ibanez RG560M
2006 Fender Mexi Strat
Jackson/Charvel Star W/ Custom Graphics.
Ovation CP 247 Acoustic
Line 6 POD HD Pro X
Pro Tools 9

I'd rather spend more for the second one. By the way, I listened to both Superior Drummer and Steven Slater metal demos, and the latter one is better, I just wanted to know if it can cover rock and jazz as well, and if it is easy to use with Pro Tools.

Yes, it is, but SSD is MUCH better!
It has like 50 "drumsets" and some of them must be jazzy. You can just go to their webpage and find out; there are video of some guy playing on every drumset!

Also, isn't the Pit the wrong forum for this?

Just found it, thanks a lot.

Can I use SSD as a plug-in with Pro Tools?
