You will find here a few other retail amplifier simulators that I will introduce only briefly because I don't owe them and I can't test them. Yet, it's important to mention these products for those of you who might be interested in buying them.

Guitar Rig - Revalver - Vandal - Softube - Studio Devil

Guitar Rig (web site)

Guitar Rig is a good product, but it emulates so many things that you get kind of lost when using it. You want to try everything, mix effects, amps, microphones and in the end, you spend more time tweking stuff than actually playing. And you have so much choice that you can wonder how loyal the sound is when compared to the original gear. Yet, the results can be excellent and Guitar Rig is very thorough. Sound purists may prefer more specialized simulators, with less choice but higher fidelity.

Revalver (web site)

Currently in version 4 released in late summer 2014, Peavey amplifiers are of course put forward in this software and are given their real names: 6505, 6505+, Classic 30, JSX, Triple XXX, Valveking.

You will also find other amps bearing names that remind gear from Marshall or Vox, amongst others...

The general quality of the product is excellent and you will find a large choice of stomp boxes, effects and tools.

Magix Vandal (web site)

Not as famous as Guitar Rig or Amplitube and yet pretty good. But the product is now discontinued

Softube (web site)

Softube released 3 amp sim packs. The first one is dedicated to Metal amps, the second one to vintage amps, and the last one to bass guitars. Each pack is sold separately and only includes 2 or 3 amplifiers. In the end, it's a good but rather expensive product. Newer Marshall amp sims are also available.

Metal Amp Room (web site)

There are only two amplifiers, but the quality makes it worthy for Metal fans.

Bass Amp Room (web site)

This bass simulator offers one head and three cabs. The first cab is an 8x12, the second is a 4x12, and the third is a small 1x12. You can activate or deactivate the head and/or the cabs, so you can use an external impulse loader with the impulse of your choice.

For some time now, this brand has been offering a free amp sim called British Valve Custom, but it also sells other commercial plugins: amp sims for guitar and bass, as well as a software tube preamp.

Je signale que les fichiers mp3 sur la page du tuto "mixage des guitares solos" sont en fait les fichiers des guitares rythmiques.
Merci pour ce tuto, et le reste du site. :)

I wanted to thank you for these instructions!

I tried this today and did a few iterations of trying to capture my cab. It worked pretty well. The sound of the IR is pretty close to my cab.

If I spend some more effort to set things up better, I will get a better result.

But without your instructions, this wouldn't have even happened. So thanks again!

Glad to be of help! Enjoy your IRs!

First off id just like to say that this entire site is an absolute GEM for vst guitar amp sims, ive been using plugins like lepou's le456 and LeCab and many others you host here on this site since i was 13 way back in 2013, ive always used fl studio and as such i am using 12 64 bit with an i5 and 8gb of ram hp laptop. Here soon i will be upgrading to the latest version of fl, with an i7, 12gb of ram lenovo laptop, all my setups are running windows 10. im getting a usb interface for my guitar tomorrow so im finding all the plugins im going to need, and this site by far has literally everything i need for amp sims. I have never even found a copy of the Revolution Z plugin, the sites been dead since i was a kid. I wish you and this entire site the best of luck, wishes and prosperity, i would love to see this site last for the years to come, so much of this software is really hard to find, amazing archive :)
