Are there any free programs similar to Guitar Rig?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for something basic that will let me use my laptop as a portable guitar and bass setup. I already have what I need for keys on it...

 

Is there anything similar to guitar rig that's free?

Just to make sure - Is this for a Windows operating system? I know of some LADSPA plugins for Linux, and on OSX you could probably use the GarageBand stuff for it (although I haven't really looked into it enough since it doesn't really interest me).

 

please show ME how!!!

step 1: put on Pirate eyepatch

step 2: visit friends on The Bay

step 3: follow their instuctions to find the treasure

If you have a Mac laptop then you probably already have a similar program - Garageband. There are some reasonable amp sims built into it.

 

If you have a PC then IK Multimedia and Waves both offer time limited trials of their programs Amplitube (in its many guises) and GTR3 respectively. If you just want to bang down some tunes in the space of two weeks then this could be the answer for you. GTR3 is killer as is IK's Amplitube Hendrix. Both of them sound better than Guitar Rig IMO - I have all three.

There actually is a free guitarsim package with a lot of effects but I've forgotten the name. The amps are meh but the effects were ok.
