• Thank for you answer Ray,

    Yes, I have seen EW Ministry of Rock, and it definitly rocks, however it is a bit expensive,

    I have Kontakt and Sibelius, is there any less expensive solution that would apply for me ?

    Thank you in advance for your help on this subject.


  • No doubt Quantum Leap's Ministry of Rock is the best of its kind. However its huge, and consumes a lot of memory while functioning.
    A more cheaper and equally effective solution (takes much less memory) would be - using ReFX Slayer2 to generate the electric guitar sound, with Native Instruments Guitar Rig, as an effects device to create the distortion onto it. Amplitube Metal would also help.

    As for example, check out my composed rock instrumental 'escape velocity' , on my profile.
  • I have the Prominy LPC library (the clean version) and it is very good. A little expensive, perhaps, but VERY good. I use Guitar Rig or Amplitube for the grit - gives me more control - but you can get both.

    Also, I hear that RealStrat and RealLPC from MusicLab are pretty good. I only own RealGuitar, and like it...
  • i'd have to second prominy LPC. It's really worlds better than ministry of rock, which in my opinion, kinda sucks. LPC is really in a different league.

    If you go that route, i'd recommend just getting the clean version and using amp simulators to get the tone you want... my favorites are vintage amp room and metal amp room by softube.
  • Thank you for your answer Chris.

    Kind regards,
