So yeah...
I'm working with Garage Band on my Mac and I'm having a hard time getting a good High Gain sound on it. I worked with all the EQ settings and levels, I even went so far as to try to plug a 7 band Eq and a Metal Zone infront of it and I stil couldn't get a desireable sound. All of my clean and low gain effects on it are fine, it's just the Distorion I need, any suggestions?

You'll never find a decent high gain sound with a computer, tubes with speakers moving air is the only way to go, or even a SS if your strapped for cash.

I also don't think a distortion pedal in front of an (especially) solid state amp sounds too nice either.

That's bullshit, absolute bogus. Because
1)There are pleanty of nice sounding plugins that can simulate nice distortion
2) "Decent" is open ended.

Yes, but they'll never soudn like a real amp, pushing real air, and its never overdrive - its clipping.

thats one of the two problems i have with GB
not enough high gain
and
not enough fuzz tones

other than that i love it thoroughly

Oh well, now the empty shell of what used to be chocolaty goodness can contain a tasty guitar circuit.

overdrive=narural distortion= clipping.

I don't know if a metal zone is good for Garage tone. Get a muff.

Just an update on this for anyone who is using GB. I did some monkeying and I found a free distortion AU called Camel Crusher that by itself is terrible sounding but you can use it to boost the gain on one of the current amp models in the program, you just gotta fiddle with it.
