JFTR I don't use Guitar Rig, I don't use Windows or a Mac, but it does
provider some nice things, such as a step sequencer for the guitar. As I
already pointed out, all simulations can be used sometimes, but most of
the times any elCheapo amp recorded by any elCheapo mic at disgusting
low volumes sounds better. For clean guitars a Boss CS-3 and for
overdrive a Boss OD-2 and a little bit of an 80th early reflection + the
mixer's parametric EQ usually will do better, than Guitarix, Guitar Rig
and others. IIRC Zoom was the first who introduced those emulations to
the masses. Between 20 and 30 years ago Zoom released a kind of "Guitar
Amp Walkman", I don't remember it's name, it was similar to what
Guitarix provides nowadays. No doubt about it, Zoom, Guitarix and others
are useful for some tasks, but they can not provide what they claim to
