I wanted to start a topic to find out what others are using for getting some of the great sound I hear in the videos posted here.
I’ve been using Amplitube for quite some time and recently bought a Stomp I/O as well. I can never get anywhere near the sound that I hear when others post on youtube and on here. While I’m sure some of it is my sucky playing, I still feel I’m not configuring things correctly or I’m using the wrong software.
I typically practice at night when my wife goes to bed, so I usually play through my PC with headphones so I don’t wake her up. I do have an amp as well but plugging my headphones into the amp gives me a lot of crackling for some reason AND I can feel the vibration of the guitar in the headphones through the wire. At least on my PC my headphones are wireless.
Does anyone have good recommendations for software to try? I don’t mind something free as long as it has the option to purchase better effects, cabs etc… But I also don’t want to spend thousands on it since I just play as a hobby and not a serious musician.
I have a high end PC(core i9 extreme CPU, 64 gigs of ram, 2 TB ssd with high end sound card) so resources are not an issue but Amplitube still tends to lock up on me at times and configuration settings don’t always save which can be a bit frustrating.
I couldn’t find other posts discussing this, but if I missed some please feel free to point me to those.
