When I first tried Amplitube (version 2) I walked away unimpressed when comparing it to Peavey's Revalver (3) software. All of the good faith Peavey had built was dashed with Revalver IV, as the ability to pair preamps with different power amps was removed. I began to search for something else to get me where I wanted, and noticed Amplitube had moved to an À la carte format. I loaded it up locked in a tone, and deleted Revalver after about an hour. Solid heavy tones, shimmering cleans, and the added bonus of the Fender, Hendrix and Slash (and others) licenses on top of the ability to test any À la carte offering for three days before buying makes this my primary way to practice at home, where the 2x12 would lead to some angry neighbors.
