Lots of free VSTs and plugins out there nowadays have prompted me to dip my tones into some of the available modelling tech. And I decided to start with Amplitube 4 free and see where it takes me. The reasons to start with it: standalone version, plug and play, 3 amps and a bunch of neat effects to choose from. In conclusion: if you have a good set of monitors, in my case a pair of Genelec 8030d, there's definitely a lot you can do with the modelling tech out there now, free or otherwise. IK Multimedia's free version of Amplitube surprised me as not only fun and intuitive, but also quite well rounded, covering much ground tone-wise. Ain't replacing tube amps for me, but it certainly has its uses . Anyone else here using some pretty darn good amp modelling? And how do you use it?
