    If this has been discussed on the group earlier, reference please???

    I frequently find myself wishing I had a decent electric guitar plugin for commercial tracks - I have good acoustic gtrs from a variety of sources including Kontakt and hardware, but medium to heavy guitars are thin on the ground.

    I am aware of:
    Halion


    M-Audio
    http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/HeavyGuitars.html


    Humbucker Guitar for Kontakt
    http://www.pettinhouse.com/html/hg.html

    I can;t find a demo of Halion, but the other 2 sound great on their demos.

    trouble is, I have no idea what these tools are like in a flexible songwriting environment - demos can be, by their nature, an exaggeration of power :)

    Does the panel have any experiences to share?

    The one I've heard people like the most is the Prominy LPC. They also have a Strat now. http://www.prominy.com/

    There is a video of the creator playing a very heavy guitar part...very expressive! The video demo on the site has better sound, but I'll embed the YouTube version so you can get an idea of it.

    I like Pettinhouse's Direct Guitar 2 with Amplitube.

    Thanks, Orren, pete, Jay - what an interesting haul!

    HAving had a dip into each, I find that the Ministry of Rock looks most promising for my playing style and the scope of finger control, although I resent paying for the drums - I love my SD2! :)

    Much more research needed - I'll keep you posted.
