Is there any electric guitar software for PC that emulates a efffects pedal board?

Like, you plug your guitar into your PC, and then you can use a "virtual" efects pedal board?

I'd like to know if such a software exists... Not for live gigs, of course, but to mess around and experiment, just for fun, it would be useful...
It would be also useful to test some effects before buying the actual pedal without having to go to the music store [lazy...]

guitar rig is pretty good,but theres this problem where everything you play comes out delayed for a split second,so its really confusing when you start playing,thats why i prefer my amp much much more!
it has some decent settings though..

you can use ASIO 4 All that should help with the delay...
btw I use a M-Audio Jamlab as my audio interface (instrument-> computer) and it works very well

No its a problem with his soun interface. Not having a decent latency free setup and latency free drivers screw up a lot.

Anyway, back to topic, try out guitarrig and amplitube. Guitarrig has more options but IMO sounds worse than amplitube.

For connecting your guitar, you can directly connect it with a cable, but you'll get latency(a delay between when you play and when you hear the note).
You can use ASIO4All to get this latency down, but the best option would be to get an analogue to digital converter like stealthplug or a line6 toneport. They come with amplitube and gearbox respectively which will do amp sims for you.
