    Under 600 dollars. I've only seen the virtual guitarist as an option for midi guitar. Can anyone recommend others?
    I want to sound like Tool/metallica/ac/dc , metal sound

    Guitar ? Well this sounds lame but if you want a real guitar sound you have only one option: hire a guitarplayer!

    none of them sound real, but the most "realistic" imo is Realguitar which looks rather acoustic.

    Slayer is a vst instument pluggin for cubase. There some great subtle and very intuitive tone and pickup adjustments. Some useful presets to start out. I have gotten lost in this little thing for hours.

    fls comes bundled with slayer2. Sounds nothing at all resembling a real instrument. Completely synthetic, and every preset is immediately noticable as being "slayer".
    I'm not saying its a bad plugin, it about as far away as you're going to get from what Gorch is asking for.

    I don't know if it only my opinion or is shared by any else but... I think that the sound of a distorted guitar is actually the worst emulated one.
    So I can't do other than quote Niliov: hire a guitarplayer... sorry..

    Personally, I use EastWest/Quantum Leap's Ministry of Rock 2. I use the heavy guitars. It takes a little bit of EQ tweeking to fit it into a particular song depending on what other instruments you're using but for the most part, they sound really good.

    The emulation technology from 2006 when this thread was originally written is HUGE!!!. Everything about sampled guitar sounds has been rewritten in ways that are far beyond what was available then.

    But this is a pertinent thread that should be addressed.

    I have always loved the sounds and the subtle nuances you could get from micing an amp with a good player in the chair. And this will always be my first choice in an important role in the song.........

    The question then ....from me to all you git-ists who record and produce....."What effect would a sampled or 'modeled' guitar sound have to your production? In relation to the "arrangement".....Notes the same, in a part...

    What difference might this make to you in a production of a piece of music???

    If you use a Kemper/Eleven/ guitar module dujour....Which one and why?

    I have an Eleven Rack. It's my third one. I've played on a Kemper. I've played on a Stomplab. I've played on a Line 6. The only one that feels like an amp is the Eleven.
    You get that?

    Makes a HUGE difference in the "feel" of the track. Every time.

    So what does the feel of an amp do for your playing?
