    Alright, I was thinking of doing a FAQ kind of list of the many software guitar and bass amps there are. I know I will miss a lot of them, so help me out :) I will not include the DAW built-in ampsims or software that requires a piece of hardware (other than the audio interface) to work

    yeah, we definitely need more people to develop ampsims....there are definitely not enough out there....
    I'll stop bitching as soon as someone designs one that beats a miced MArshall MG15r for distorted rhythms ;).

    thanks to the OP for the effort....but seriously...does this really need to be a sticky?
    I just don't see the reason, I'd still do it if you want me to....just can't see why....everyone knows about the important ones already...just scour the RMM section and you'll be reminded how many ampsims are out there :)

    ...I know, I'm a dick :D
