I have an Axe Fx II XL+ that I currently use with my studio monitors, but I can't help but feel it's kind of being wasted on me and I might be better off putting the money into a nicer guitar. I pretty much plug in my guitar and use a single preset I downloaded every time I play, and I never play guitar outside of my office. I never play loud because my wife is always around, and I also don't like the amount of space the Axe Fx takes up on my desk, it's a pretty big piece of equipment. In my case, would I be better off using software and something like the Will Putney STL plugins through my studio monitors? Will this sound just as good for the basic needs I have, which is nice sounding, heavy tones?
