    Default Guitar Rig?

    Hey - anyone have any feedback regarding the Guitar Rig software/hardware from Native Instruments? I'm intrigued by it, but have been disappointed in the past with stuff that looked great until you got it home and used it. Does it really sound that good? Can you use just the software without the foot controller? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    You can use the software without the foot controller, yes. The software sounds good - not 100% like a real amp, but there is a ton of flexibility. You should try it out if possible. One of my favorite patches I made has a crossover - the high end goes through four amps and the low end goes through four different amps, and it's a stereo setup. Something like that in real life would cost a few years' pay!

    Thanks guys. I think I can get a demo version of the software for free which should let me try it out. Hopefully it will be as good as the ads make it look!

    I use similar software - its called Amplitube - there are a few different versions. Off the top of my head there is the regular one, jimi hendrix, a fender edition, and a metal edition (may be a couple others as well). The metal edition models the 5150 - it sounds pretty good for a piece of software. I would suggest checking some of those out as well if you can. If you can't I can record a few samples for you.

    The more you look around, the more software there is - I know there are at least a few others that do this same thing - some people swear some are better than others, but who knows!
