    lately i discovered guitar rig 3.

    some may see the thing as the end of civilization,

    to me it's the funniest toy ever, and you can get loads of easily recordable great tones.

    sure it ain't like playing real amps and effects,
    but not having wads of cash, living in a small place,
    being the lady complaining for new guitars starting to come in again,
    and not having the skills to build my own amps as some true geniuses in this forum do,
    i think this is a fantastic addition to my toolbag.

    i have almost all my dream amps, cabinets, effects, microphones and studio gear in a single package,
    tons of usable gear in my laptop.

    recording has never been so easy and fun.

    even plugging in the microphone in with my guitar i have only a 13ms lag,
    which is nothing, or at least makes the thing fantastically usable in studio/recording and even live situations.

    (an inexpensive external audio device would reduce that lag to zero)

    amps and effects are really responsive and, with a little bit of tweaking, close to the real deal as you can get.

    is anybody experiencing the same?

    I downloaded it, and also tried Guitar Rig 2 before. I think the 3 is a lot better, and the news amps (Hiwatt and orange) are reaaally good. The only thing though is that I never had the chance to try it through a real USB or firewire interface. I have a really good soundcard, and plug my guitar in an amplified console outputting to the line in of my soundcard. I always thought it sounded very thin, missing a lot of definition, and I always attributed it to the fact i'm not using an interface, 'cause I never had the kind of sounds I heard from let's say youtube recordings or demos.

    I'm pretty sure it'd be worth it to invest into a small interface or recording soundcard!
