Thumbs up Real Preamps and Plug-in speaker sims

Hello,

any of you people out there using a guitar preamp (like a SansAmp PSA) and feeding that to a speaker simulator plugin on your computer? I've been using this for some time and get really usable sounds (with Guitar Rig 2 speaker sim only) and was wondering if anyone else is doing it, what they're doing it with and how they feel it compares to the mic'd cabinet. I mostly do the saturated/modern thingy for metalheads and an occasional chorusy jazz or rolling stones-style rock, and to me it sounds pretty much authentic (to the players as well, got only and for now)!

So, opinions and other combinations, please?

I think Voxengo's Boogex is nice and it's free.

I always turn the drive off on the amplifier because it sounds not like a real distortion.

You should give it a try.

Do you use it with an external guitar preamplifier? If so, which one?

Yeah

I use a peavey rockmaster tube pre which works quite nice also on clean stuff.

I also got interesting results with the metal zone 2 stomp.

Although I feel there's much to experiment with that setup, which I want to do further, a real miked amp with air moving in front of the mike can sound so beautiful.

Have fun.

Michael
