which Amp Sim would you recommend for creating authentic GD Sound (70`s to 85)?
My needs: Play along to my favourite tunes, jamming to backing tracks. (youtube, foobar) 70% of what i`m playing is Grateful Dead-Stuff.
I`ve read that not every amp sim allows hearing the software output simultaneously to the youtube/foobar output. Pod Farm does. Even the trial version excites me and i`m pleased with the sound i`m gettin out of it.
Recording is no priority. I have Ableton Live 10 Lite. Came with the Tone Port UX2 i purchased on Ebay. Also Pod Farm 2 came with it as a trial. Two days ago i asked if i can upgrade from trial to model packs, to safe myself some money... Nice thinking! ^^
After reading way to many hours about best amp sims 2020, tips for getting better amp sim tones, Impulse Responses, high impedance or Hi-Z signal... Stuff i know lollipop about, i`m gettin confused and overwhelmed by the offers of the industriy.
Some people say that Pod Farm still holds up and this justifies the relative "high price" for an old software. Some say it is obsolete. Some it depends on what IR you put in front of your amp. (IR = Cab = Preamp) ? You see how stupid i am? :) All this terms and abbreviations makes i not easier as a german to get into this stuff.
So, what do you say? Whats best for me ?
