I've been looking to get a better amp lately, but I also want to do more recording, so I've been thinking of switching over to an amp sim. I primarily use Reaper for all my recording, so I want one that works easily with Reaper. Keep in mind I'm pretty much a total n00b when it comes to the intricacies and in-depths of using reaper, but I can do lots of basic stuff with it. I've never used an amp sim before either, so I will have a high learning curve. I'm also currently using a zoom multi-fx unit as my interface, but I had been planning on buying a Scarlett at some point. My initial thought was Guitar Rig, as it seems to be pretty popular and pretty capable. I primarily play metal, in the Pantera / Metallica vein, as well as hardcore punk. Any opinions on whats out there as far as a good mix of quality / user patches / affordability? Thanks.
