Thanks to MR4Y and Gremsongs, i now dived into the world of freeware cabs and ampsims, and simply blown away of the sheer quality i've found. THANKS ALOT!

Now the question, i see all over the net, people are using whether lecab2 or kefir to load the cab IRs.
Lecab2 doesnt work with jbridge on S1 64 bit for me. But can i use ampire instead? It loads also the IRs.
Is the quality actually equal or not? Can someone please explain?

Sorry for the dumb question.
Guess the answer is yes.

Hi there, in terms of 64 bit ir loaders I can't think of any off the top of my head. I would use keffir mainly because it doesn't colour the sound. As a guitar player myself I've tried other ir loaders and I keep coming back to kefir. Voxengo boogex adds its own EQ so I don't use that. Are you EQ frequency response matching? If so I can recommend curve EQ.
As far as amp Sims go I can whole gariheartily recommend the tse x30

Thanks for your infos. I already tried kefir. But somehow it sounds strange compared to ampire with the same IR. The other advantadge of ampire is i can actually load more than one IRs and combine them. It's also very effective with the CPU usage.
That tse x30 is already on my hard drive, just have to test it along with tons other ones.

By itself tse x30 sounds like a ruin of wasps but marry it with a decent ir response and it becomes a beast. Its an emulation of an engl e530, its fierce to fast the least. There is also the tse x50 which is based on the Peavey 5150. I trend to spend time EQ capturing guitar tones and saving them asir, x30 is my go to amp Sim
