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: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
