Guitar Rig 5

Is this the best software to get that metally/hardcore/metalcore type sound, really tight, crunchy heavy sound? Presets are alright, but not too good at making my own sounds. What do you think? I have pod farm too, but i'm not a massive fan

If your home recording and not playing live etc then yes. Loads of presets that you can tweak, famous setting etc.

I'm not a guitar player per say but it makes me sound good on my tracks.

I bought Komplete 8 rather than just guitar rig though. The couple of hundred extra was worth it for kontakt, massive and all the instruments you get.

Haha, yeah.

Each to their own etc.

If you want an honest answer, with no arguing, download the free demo version (guitar rig player). It only runs for 30 mins a time, but, you get your own opinion. I prefer it to the logic Amps, guitar rig sounds more real than logic.

I think Guitar Rig is great if you play different styles, but for a metal sound i prefer Metal Amp Room from Softube.

I'm still on guitar rig 4. Sounds good to me. If you don't like it, get the free amplitube 3.5 player and try out the custom shop amps. They let u try for free before buying. Guitarnoize on YouTube has a bunch of vids showing off how they sound

I got Guitar Rig 5 and think it's great. There's a ton of different preset sounds and fx and it's pretty easy to sculp out your own tones.

There is a battle between Amplitube and Guitar Rig much like Cubase/Logic/Protools. They do generally the same thing with slight differences in interface and processing. I use Guitar Rig 5, never had any problems. Digital processing will always sound a bit thin and tinny but if you aren't that fussed and not aiming to produce the next Iron Maiden album, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Go for Guitar Rig 5!

There are some great sounds in Guitar Rig, but I haven't used it much since I bought Scuffham's S-Gear.

I tried out Guitar Rig5, as well as Amplitube. They are pretty good, but not the best.

IMO the absolute best sounding and easiest to use program is Guitar FX Box 3. I think that is the official name. It has by far the best rock, metal, clean, and wah sounds - plus it's easy to create your own sound presets. Approximately 30 amps, lots of adjustable effects. Very, very low latency (I hesitate to say "none", but if it's there, it's never noticeable), and almost no CPU load. I can run it along with my DAW, so I can play along with my beats. There is a free demo you can get, but I went ahead and bought the full version. The best $30 I have ever spent (on my guitar)...
