I'm sure this has been discussed so if anyone wants to direct me to those threads that would be appreciated, just don't have time to search everywhere. I'm looking into software plugins for guitar - amp simulation and also FX. Wanted everyone's thoughts on the better ones out there as there are many. I'm not interested in impulses but something more Amplitube-esque. A tonal variety replacement for a lackluster Pocket POD (and improved quality). Also, I should note that I am NOT looking for metal rhythm tones. My ENGL does most of the heavy lifting for that stuff. I'm looking for good cleans, vintage type of tones, bluesy break-up stuff, and maybe leads. Also FX - traditional pedal board stuff: phase, flanger, chorus, tremolo, etc. I'd prefer to not have something that is too CPU intensive unless it's really worth it for the sonic quality of the plugin. Usable bass tones would be a huge plus but not a deal breaker. Price isn't really a factor as most of this stuff seems to be in a competitive range with each other. I wouldn't wanna spend more than like $400. Suggestions? I'm using REAPER if that helps.
