Revalver installed with no problems, it was a cinch to get it running. I didn't have any compatibility issues on my system. You do have to validate it with a key and response question, but this isn't complicated and takes less than 5 minutes. There are some configuration options you can take advantage of after you have it installed to get it to work the way you want it to, but all of that is explained in the manual. The manual is very in-depth without getting too technical, so it answered any questions I had quickly.


I am running a PC setup with Windows XP. For hardware I have a dual core processor and 4GB of RAM. For host software I use Nuendo, so I am using the VST version of this software. Revalver works perfectly fine in this setup. It does use a little bit of CPU, so if you want to have 20 guitar tracks all running through its own instance of Revalver you may want to rethink that approach. You do get your CPU's worth in sound quality though. The plug-in is very stable - I can't remember it crashing or causing any problems so far since I've had it.


I have been using this for only about a month - I heard from a friend that this amp sim is going to blow the competition away even though it's from a company who isn't known for plug-ins. I will say that it definitely doesn't blow the competition away, but it is a serious contender. The amps do sound very realistic, there isn't much of the harsh, digital amp-sim sound that normally can give them away. Revalver doesn't have as many bells and whistles as something like Guitar Rig, but just the amp modeling part of it is either just as good or superior. The price is very good for the quality of the guitar sounds you can get. I would get it again - it's nice to have a variety of amp-sims to choose from, and this one definitely stacks up against the well known competitors.
