    Whatever they're called, I'm recording straight in so I want realistic guitar sounds (both lead and rhythm) as well as decent sounding drums and synths, the whole package basically. Is there anywhere to download decent free ones?

    I think it would be great if anyone who likes having a large sample database could add something in here...KVR is a great website to keep up with news & updates, but they have a lot of resources as well, such as a huge library of free stuff:

    Word of caution: depending on how you intend to use "free" samples, you can get into copyright trouble. Many people don't read the fine print even on commercially released sample CDs-- it is possible, for example, to make a hit song using a loop from a sample CD you bought at Guitar Center, and be sued.

    Speaking of loops is that what you're talking about? Or you mean, a guitar sound in a plug-in that you play using a MIDI keyboard?

    Thanks for the link. Anyone else?

    I'm looking for plug ins (I suppose) which produce different tones for my guitar when I'm recording straight in with my guitar. I have no midi keyboard so for drums and anything piano sound related I just use my laptop's keyboard, so I want different plug ins for drum tones as well as synthesizer sounds.

    Not free. :( Not sure where to get free guitar amp modeling software. I really like Peavey's revalver, but I've never used GTR3. My roommate has amplitube, it's pretty thick sounding, but not very genuine, at least with the tones he works up.
