I have just set up my Focusrite 2i2 to the pc for use with my Schecter Omen 8 and am currently using Amplitube 4 as I was recommended this from someone else.
Now I am after a Heavy tone, in the region of After the Burial, Fellsilent, Meshuggah etc. What is the best program for me to use as I am still a beginner to all this and most of these programs look so bloody complicated? hahaha
I did manage to get a fairly decent tone out of Amplitube with the Engl Powerball amp but that was it really, only due to me messing around with everything.
You should check out TSE amp sims, LePou amp sims, and the Andy Sneap impulses. They're all free and, for my money, rival anything you'll pay for. You basically turn them on and they'll sound good. Check out GuitarAmpModeling.com • Index page for loads of great and free impulses (there are links to the above there, too).
