Hello there fellow guitarists. Please listen up, Amplitube VS Guitar rig. The clean, in my oppinion after trying Guitar rig, blows pod xt and amplitube, it's truly amazing, it makes the xt sound like plastic. I know guitar amps believe me, I've played them all. But heres the interesting thing.... for hi gain distortion power chords, you know like 'ramstein' style stuff. has anybody managed to come up with some killer presets??? I just did a comparison with the best heavy setup I could do with the rig, and A/B with the amplitube, I think for heavy amplitube is much more up front, and it push's air like nothing else, like much closer to your face sound. Try this..... make the best heavy sound you can in guitar rig.... Then load up amplitube, and load the preset sound called 80's heavy, or 80's heavy 2 cabs.... They are stock standard presets in amplitube, I could not come up with anything that matched that in guitar rig, it was much more powerful. Please take this poost to mind, I think the clean half distorted sounds are nailed, but this may be something that we can talk to Native Instruments about, they need to know this, and if they disagree, we'll get them to make us a preset that can out heavy the amplitube 80's heavy preset... Join the bandwagon fella's, Native Instruments first attempt at this stuff, there second attempt could be mindblowing.
