    Found this online:

    Free. Sounds great for home practice. Light on cpu resources. Take the time to learn it , it will reward you.

    They have other cool software too.

    Cool, thank you.
    Are these the same guys that developed editor for ZOOM G-type modelers?

    Yes they are. Being able to load 3rd party IRs is a boon i didn't expect.

    This now my home "amp". I use my Zoom g3xn strictly for fx. Kinda an old school approach. It sounds awesome through my eris e3.5 monitors at all levels and through headphones.

    Cool, will have to try it.
    Naive question, what do you use as digital-interface?

    I used to have zoom g3, that was nice quite low latency interface in itself. Now it is gone, given away to young budding guitarist, who will appreciate it way more. :)

    Thanks fozhebert this looks interesting... is it "Stand Alone" software or does it require a player to have an audio workstation already installed?
    The JAM software looks neat also. I will try 'em both out!

    I had a quick look into both applications (no guitar, no interface)
    Considering the purchasing price, it is unbelievable. :D

    GFX is very much like ZOOM G-series. No idea on sound quality, but looks interesting.

    In all seriousnes, in summary Tonelib-Jam is also very nice concept, takes Guitar Pro and Power Tab several steps further. It includes MP3 play along MIDI tabs, still will have to see how well autosync will work.
    Additionally, it includes VST host, so that you can play over the tabs and MP3 track... Fantastic!

    I guess this is preparation to make it a comercial package some time soon. So much work went into this...

    It might also be a project that Zoom mothballed as well.

    Tonelib GFX has now become paid software. But it is only $39.95 and they sent an email with a 25% off coupon to people who downloaded earlier free versions. I think it is well worth it. Part of the reason I think that is that I am on Linux now and there isn't much available in terms of amp sims. But I think the amp models are among the best I have ever used. In Windows, I used S-Gear, but I think that while not quite as slick in the interface, Tonelib might sound even better.

    One thing about it though is that when you load an amp, the controls are all set by default to 12:00 o'clock. This usually doesn't sound good. The first thing I do is turn the gain way back, then start tweaking other things. In a way, this is good because it forces you to use your ears and tweak.
