Well, as you know, it's all in the eye of the beholder.....but yes.Novel wrote:You prefer the sound of GR2 over Amplitube 2? Amplitube 2 sounds quite good to me.
waves, gr2, amp2, anyline 6, as a gear whore....I own or have tried them all. Hate NI, but LOVE gr2! For guitar, even at lower sample rates....I get a silky near-real sound. It doesn't matter what guitar I use and I rarely, well actually never, use the presets. Excellent for getting a "feel" but you have tweat to be sheik!
In particular, the AC stuff is just insane for a good base. Add fuzz....disto, or stack 'em (yes.....have more than one........) and enjoy! The 800 is very good, especially with an orange or 4/12 uk/60's cab......make sure the bias is at 12 or hotter! Oh.....and you should not need to have the boost on. The jazz chorus is sick when used properly.....the tweed is probably the most authentic and for disto.....I personally like the boss/ds emu! I can use that with just about anything and get great sound.
And I'll just keep going ( I feel like it ) the "stoned phase" brings back some very good feelings of a better time.....and I think the "ensamble" is the best CE-1 emu EVER! Oh, I have one of those btw.......no you can't buy it!
