Anyway what really got me goin’ was the free version of their guitar amplifier and effect modeling software “AmpliTube3″( (. I’ve worked with a lot of the real versions of their virtual music hardware and I got to tell you that the stuff that comes with the “free” edition is really good and some of the other stuff I tried and eventually bought sound REALLY good! I stayed until 4:00 AM playing my guitar through one of everything. You can try out anything for two days at a time (with a two month limit before can demo it again).
