There are quite a lot out there. For starters, search for virtuAMP in this forum - someone made it and posted it for free. Worth trying.

There's also Amplitube, which a lot of people give good reviews for, and you could try Revalver. Those are two of the better, more well known ones.
There is poetry in despair.
