Since I really need an amp sim I checked out most of the availiabe vst capable sims. I liked GuitarRig but recently bought Sonar7 which comes with Revalver MkII LE. The bluesy amp model included in MkII sounded much better than everything in GuitarRig or Amplitube. At least without a lot of tweaking. When the MkIII demo was availiable I downloaded it right away and was really impressed. This is closer to real live than any other sim. But it's just a demo and getting a good sound requires a lot of tweaking. That's why I'd like to ask you, my fellow GMCers, if you might have the full version and perhaps some insights. Since I only used demos of the other sims I can't really judge them anyway. What do you think about Revalver MkIII

Yes the Revalver MkII that ships with Sonar7 works great. I like the sound of the amp that's included. Just wanted to know if someone already uses Revalver MKIII which is now sold by Peavy

Revalver is great for some purposes, although I found it to be a bad for distortion settings. For some crunch maybe, and requred a lot of tweaking since it has a lot of parameters. You must understand that the presets will sound different with different gear and people.
Of all the programs, I think Guitar Rig represents a solid middle ground. Althouhg it is not perfect it has everything that (even pro) player needs in order to lay down some pilot tracks fast. I use Gearbox and are very happy with it for that purpose.

Also the most important thing with these modelers is to really know how the amp acts in real life. This will enable you to make a good profile that resembles to the real amp more effectively.

The distortion sounds are great. you just have to adjust the input level acording to your guitar and tweak the speaker and amp settings a liitle bit to get rid of the harsh sound of the presets. I think it's better than the competitors

I'm gonna get Revalver III soon, I've found that it has the best sound from all the modeling VST's, and I'm willing to tweak it to achieve good sounds! smile.gif
