There is of course one incredibly versatile and great sounding one stop solution for both bass and guitar:

BlueCat Destructor - if you also want FX included however, you'd have to go with their Axiom instead.

Amplitube is an option, but pricy. I can but about four or five amps and pedals for the same price as TH-U Full.

The current TH-U price is a special intro offer and IKMM often do sales too. Typically, Overloud is more pricey than IKMM.

Right now you can purchase the Ampeg PowerDuo bundle, which includes Amplitube 4 Standard plus both Ampeg SVX 1 and 2 for 100gear credits.
For 159€ you could purchase 200credits, which means you'd still have 100credits left to either purchase another bundle such as the Jimi Hendrix or the Fender 1 or some individual models after demoing them in the shop.
Otherwise you could have the PowerDuo Bundle for 99€.

You could of course also keep the extra credits until another deal comes around.

Or you could even use them for T-racks.

Also, purchasing will give you "Jam Points" which will give you a discount on future prchases.
I know I mentioned them as a possibility but Amplitube is right at the very bottom of my list due to their hidden and unfair prcing strategy, in that you cannot see clearly how much things cost online without downloading their custom shop app, and then they keep my money if I don't spend it all via their credit packaging.

If there isn't anyone then I suspect I will put just enough credits on to buy one or two amps and then leave it there. I don't want to get involved with such a company if I can avoid it.

That's quite understandable... (personally I don't have such a big problem with that though)

here's the link to Destructor b.t.w. (don't let its name fool you):

Blue Cat's Destructor is my favorite by far. Only thing I've found missing in it is an overall dry/wet control.

For tracking the free Softamp PSA is versatile and quick to use.
One of my favorite plugs for bass, drums, gtr. vocals and even master.
