VST Plug-ins ??

I'm not so great

I'm looking for some really good VST plug-ins for guitar effects. I'm using Reaper, and the plug-ins that I've got with it are pretty limited and not what I'm looking for.

Also, I'm looking for a really good amp simulator. Kind of like POD Farm. Reaper offers I think 8 amp sounds, and I dont care for any of em.

Anyone know of any good freeware or shareware plug-ins and amp sims?

I don't know exactly what they have for amp\cab sims, but they have a ton of free VST stuff.

Free amp is great.

one of the best for free, in my book.

Juicy77 is good i've heard.

there's others, but Free amp should get you cooking for awhile.

If it isn't there they can show you were to go.

I see Tripps had it up there already as well.

I'll go along with pjk, I've tried quite a few of them and as far as free guitar amp sims it's about the best, still IMO not nearly as good as the commercial offerings, but definitley useable and you can't argue with the price :). Another one is Voxengo's Boogex, kind of limited but has some good sounds and uses cab impulses for the cabinet modeling.

Aight, so here's my next question. When I download a VST plug-in or an amp-sim, how do I incorporate that into my recording software. I've been using Reaper, which was recommended here, but I was looking around and dont know how to add the VSTs I've downloaded into the list of VST it came with. Same goes for an amp-sim. How do I used the amp-sim with the software?

You wimply drag the .dll file into the VST folder of the application you are using and let the application find the VST or wrap it.

If the plug has its own installer then you run that and point it at the VST folder your app uses.
