Re: Guitar Rig 3 Vs. Amplitube 2 Metal
I only have experience with Guitar Rig 3
I hate it! Tones are just...god awful. If you really need a huge selection of amps for your music and sound is more important than tone, then yeah, it's great for that.
Give me an outboard processor any day.
I have a pretty decent PC running Cakewalk Sonar, and after you get an entire mix in, with all the effects for the other tracks and two or three Guitar Rigs plugged in, it takes up a tremendous amount of system resources. In addition, if you're using a drum sampler like Superior Drummer like me, and are putting effects on the master bus as well, it's so easy to crash.
I agree with jdsony, that there are some awesome free VSTs out there.
