Plugins v stock QC software

Hi Guys,

When my QC arrives it is going to be a big learning curve. It is my first time with a modeller.

So the unit comes pre loaded with amps, effects and irs. Are these plugins.

I note DSP plugins are pricy, do they come with a lot more effects or are the just one amp.

Will I want to buy plugins or will the updates provide these.

I don’t have an issue buying plugins, I just wont know what I am buying.

Sorry guys I am green in all aspects.
