    amlitube is not bad IMO, i use it quite a bit at home. I would never actually use it to play live though. Best start saving for a decent amp.

    I don't know anyone who's used amplitube for live use, which tells me it's probably not your best bet.

    If you start saving now, you will be much closer to getting a real amp :yesway:

    Well what kind of music are you playing live and what will your budget be?

    I've got a Katana Mini and i quite like it, again just for home use. Definately not loud enough for live use.

    And for what will be a decent amp:

    loomis/merrow stuff, symphony x, etc

    if i will start saving i don't know my budget, it will be variable... but i can't save for super mega expensive things like a mesa boogie or a head and a cab separately (because is a lot more expensive)

    Doesn't Merrow use a 5150 for some of his stuff? I sold my 5150 2x12 combo for $400 last year. All you'd need beyond that is a boost and a gate.

    Sure why not?
    I once used guitar rig 4 on my laptop for band practice while my tube amp was out for maintenance.

    The hardest thing to do is to find a decent eq curve that resembles a real rig. A tone that sounds full and rich through your headphones or home stereo, might sound very midrangey and pokey through the PA.

    Take your time and tweak until it gels nicely with your band mates. Don't expect to get there quickly. If you have the tools and knowledge, you could take a shortcut by Eq-matching your tone to a real rig (for instance if you got a second guitar player in your band who uses a real amp, then match-eq his tone)
