We received a few requests to review all of the amp sims that are included with various DAWs. We gave it a shot and in the process we decided that we are going to simplify and condense them into a quick guide instead. We found that nothing but the suite in Logic really had anything to offer. These sims all just seemed like side offerings and it would take a few clicks and five mins to grab a bunch of freeware plugins that blow them all out of the water. Rather than spending time writing a subpar or negative review, we are just going to put them all in one feature and point interested readers in the right direction.
Our advice is, don’t buy a DAW for the amp sims. Don’t even look at these sims as a selling feature that helps make the decision. An amp sim is the last thing you need in a DAW, think about CPU, workflow and the important stuff.
