Does anyone know of a quality amp simulator software? I'm looking something that can make sounds like Slipknot, Parkway Drive, Five Finger Death Punch, etc.

- Digitech Whammy Pedal
- Weeping Demon Wah Pedal
- Visual Sound Volume Pedal

Guitar Rig 4 pretty much sucks for metal.

There are some REALLY great free VST's.

TSE X30 (Engl sim)
LePou's Solo C (Soldano sim)
LePou's Legion

Of course you'd have to download and impulse loader and some impulses.. and a Tube Screamer sim to tighten things up as most amp sims are quite muddy.

I'm not sure what you're getting at.

Even running a costly amp sim like GR or Amplitube, or even Pod Farm, it's always better to have a OD sim pedal in front of your chain.

Or maybe you're getting at how it's funny that you have to do that in real life sometimes?

amplitube metal had some pretty slick tones, but i never used it much because it was super laggy on my pc.

He meant by how u said simulators sound kind of muddy, so stick a SIMULATED OD to clear it up.

Yes - Though much more expensive.

You can buy POD Farm Platinum from AudioMidi.com for $150, though you'll also need an iLok if you don't have one.

Enjoy yourself. These are free, and better than Revalver, Guitar Rig, Podfarm combined!

I do not work for Acmebargig. Just a happy user of their software!

I dunno, I haven't tried anything since Shred came out and I didn't like the tones I got out of that at all. As with most of the free VSTs, they sound overly digital.

Been meaning to try their newer high gain ones, but I've been really happy with the tones I've gotten since I got POD Farm Platinum, so I really haven't bothered

^Revalver sounds fairly decent to my ears... I have a (horrifically badly mixed) sample on my profile.

PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I have GR4. Getting a real premium metal tone is difficult. But what GR4 does it does great...that is, it gives you tons of sounds, tones, effects, preset styles, etc. to play around with. The clean sounds are fantastic, classic rock tones are ok, metal is there, it just doesn't translate great and it's not very smooth.

Because of this I recently bought Peavey's 6505+ 112 Combo with MSDI. This gives me a direct out option to record via my PreSonus interface (using Sonar 8.5.2). When I need to be quiet, I can still record riffs and song ideas, etc. with GR4. With it's flexibility, it's value for songwriting is phenomenal. When I don't have to worry about the neighbors I'll be cranking up the Peavey.
