I’m using the trial version of Gorija for now, but I’m going to buy some of these plugins as the amps and presets sound great.
I’m a bedroom player, but I like a decent sound and I really want my toys to sound good.
I switched from amp + cab to digital sounds, sold everything and bought a laptop, audio interface and Mackie CR8-X BT studio monitors.
Before I bought these devices, I tried to play a bit on my hi-fi stereo system with speaker simulation turned off and it sounded very good, so I expected that after buying monitors and turning on the IR cab, it would sound even better.
Unfortunately, especially the metal presets with IR on sound very muddy and bassy.
Of course, I changed the equalizer settings, but it is far from getting the right sound.
Without the cab simulation enabled, the sound is clear and alive, even under my fingers I can feel it.
Some guitarists don’t like spiker cab simulations, I wonder
do I belong to this group.
I figured cab simulation would be something great, but so far it hasn’t worked well.
Maybe I should better buy some powerful hi-fi set (speakers and amplifier), turn off the column simulations in the plugin and enjoy the simulations of amplifiers without IR?
