Curious to know if anyone uses a laptop exclusively as their live rig. I have a setup that I think could really give my Kemper a run for the money. To be honest, I've been trying to get a good back up rig for my Kemper for some years. It's quite a tough ask. I can't really justify buying a second Kemper as backup because I am not a touring musician or an investment banker. I have a laptop and was curious to see if I could use some of the equipment I have to make it a good guitar rig. I basically used the VST Amp Rack which comes with Cubase. Ran an output from my interface into a Fryette Power Station and then routed that to a 4x12. To mimic a situation where I was playing live, I miced up the cabinet and recorded the output to get an idea of what the tone might sound like out front. Here's my results.
