I've recently gotten a laptop and Guitar Rig, and I have an M-Audio FireWire 410 that I can use to run my guitar into my laptop. Guitar Rig has some cool effects and stuff, and I'd like to use the lappy in the live rig. Has anyone else done this, and are there any issues with this? (Other than it being kind of fragile, and battery life)

The issue that I think you fill find challenging is making your "tones" that sound good in the headphones sound good amplified.

I dont think software can really outperform a good hardware setup (I.E. a good tube amp and some good effects on the floor)

The only thing I'd really be using it for is delays and reverbs, not the main distorted tone. Clean sounds are pretty easy to achieve with plugins, but I'd agree that distorted tones are much harder.

Dave Weiner does. Not sure what it does exactly. He mentioned it here, but I don't think he went into detail, though.
