The real steal is your time that's been stolen by downloading and installing GTR3 and finding out that it's totally fuggin useless.

By far the absolute WORST sounding amp sim ever made IMO.

That's an opinion :) I regularly use it on 'clean' guitars and sometimes on bass. It really depends on the genre.

I use this plugins a lot, along with other amor & effect emulations. I get a great tone out of it now probs.

Not sure what issues you may be having.

Yeah agreed, some great sounds out of GTR3

I have NI Gtr Rig 5, Avid Eleven MkII, Waves GTR 3, some emulations from Plugin Alliance and even those in the Plug & Mix bundle. I've used them all on occasion.

Agreed, Scuffham probably have set the standard even higher and the new amps from UAD are no slouches too.

Anyhow, back to work!

Stephen

All good, I'm just taking a cheap shot at GTR3...a lame attempt at humor...I know.

I'm sure plenty of people are getting sounds that make them happy from it, but to my ears it's about the farthest thing from an actual guitar amp that I've ever heard, but maybe that's just me...just sounds small and plastic - like a a "picture" of an amp rather than the real thing.

Having said that, I don't think any software amps really nail it, but I get a LOT closer with some of the others.

Carry on folks...nothing to see here...

If you are talking about metal guitars, usually I am reaching for Peavey ReValver4. GTR3 for me is more for vintage sound. Also GTR3 has nice stomps and very small latency. I also use GTR3 from time to time for a solo guitar.

I don't use the Amp sims very much, but it's worth the price for the stomps. They really come in handy. And being able to load up just a 2, 4, or 6 stomp plug is such an easy way to work.
