Don,t know whether this is the right section to ask this but here goes and bare in mind if you talk too technical I wont understand as its all beyond me. I have just recently downloaded the Scuffman amps modeling software onto my laptop on the free 15 day trial. I already have Guitar rig4 LE installed along with ASIO (whatever that is)to use the USB guitar cable that came with the guitar rig4LE. After much ado, and bad language,I have managed to get the thing to run using the guitar rig cable/USB and the Scuffman is a lot more refined sound wise and easier to use to me than the guitar rig. I also tried the Amplitude free download and found it too complicated and not as tonefull as the guitar rig. The Scuffman also exhibits no latency compared with the guitar rig but I still have the glitches and pops and clicks ,to a lesser extent ,which means continually adjusting the ASIO settings. Would I benefit from purchasing a separate USB/Audio interface both tonally (I understand,I think ,that this replaces the ASIO which is using the laptops soundcard)and in terms of input (analogoue to digital conversion I am assuming) If so what sort of devise do I need ? I don,t want to spend much as I will have to purchase the Scuffman software. I am not looking to record or anything like that with this stuff just late night silent practice which is too much trouble with the poor performance of the guitar rig.

Don't know if this helps but I use Guitar Rig a Waves GTR. I prefer Waves GTR. My interface is the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8. It's wicked cool. Great at multing tracks with zero lag. You could go smaller like the 2i2... 2i2 The Focusrite series is awesome. The pres are nice with tones of headroom. fwiw.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
