"I have an extensive amp collection from vintage Fenders to ultra
modified Marshalls. Before hearing GTR
I wouldn't even consider using
a software amp simulator for any of my production work, now I can't
see myself using anything else. It sounds amazing and is super fast to
use! I just plug my guitar direct in and a great sound is there...
everytime, so I can spend my time on creating and recording."
