There are plenty free amp sims to choose from, they all sound different and have unique quality. Some are simple, other offer different channels and additional switches for more tonal versatility. Since cab simulation has become a more complex matter, most amp sims don't have this functionality and if they do it can be turned off so that you can experiment in this field.

Do you know the feeling when you become bored with your tone and have this huge urge to change something in your rig? Here's a long list of different guitar plugins that you can experiment with.

GUI versions are usually made with SynthEdit (www.synthedit.com), if you have some issues with them then try out original versions (links are located right to icons).

There's much more than just an amp that can be used to achieve an interesting guitar tone, however there aren't many free effect simulations other than distortions, overdrives and boosters that I've come across.

In reality most hi-gain tube amps have definite roundness in sounds that they produce, this is no different in digital world. Semiconductor overdrive/booster adds clarity and sharpness to tube tone. It's very popular within heavy players.

TSE Plugins TS808
pic pic Ibanez Tube Screamer is a well known hi-gain amp booster. It boosts middle frequencies, pushes the amp harder and gives some cutting edge. Not everyone like to have it for rhytms because it tends to make them sound razor sharp, however it helps your lead parts to cut beatifully through the mix.
Ignite Amps TS-999
pic TS-999 is based on famous 808 model but it has some additional features that make it more versatile.
BTE Audio TS' Secret
picProbably it's one of the first Tube Screamer simulations and it's pretty decent. Great addition to Juicy77.

Impulse Response Processors

Nowadays it's very popular to use guitar cabinet impulse responses to recreate guitar cabinet sounds. Impulse responses are WAV files that you load to an impulse response processor. There are lots of free impulses to choose, the topic is covered in another article.

Check out an article on free impulse responses

pic6 IR slots, HP & LP filters, phase, pan, delay and latency control down to 64 samples.
Plektron IRcab
picIt appears to be a zero latency plugin. It's simple and allows one IR.

Boogex is an amp sim with an IR based cab sim which accepts external impulse files. To bypass the amp set all knobs to minimum except for volume.
