There has been some discussion of this on the list fairly
recently. I seem to recall a puredata patch or maybe it was an
AMS patch for guitar distortion/amp simulation. Possibly the
easiest way though is to use something like jack rack, and the
CAPS cabinet plugins maybe with some TAP tubewarmth.. I am
personally using a Behringer v-amp2 though, as it seemed a
simpler solution to the Hi-Z input problems, and adds all the
distortion and cab simulation I need.
