He uses a piece of cool kit called the RC-505.

Here's another dope video of him jamming and describing his setup (skip to 5:45 for the RC-505 part). Bonus Jazzy Jeff appearance.

hey, if you're not looking at recording, why not try a setup like this? The Boss RC-505 loop station could be used for your mic and effects, and the GT-100 multi-effects pedal could be used for guitar. Also, the RC-505 has a midi-jack and an instrument jack, so you could double effects for mic and guitar pretty easily, or run one guitar through there and another through the pedal, or what-have-you.

Unless you're really dead-set on infinite plugins, in which case, you'll need a DAW. That stands for Digital Audio Workstation, and it basically means "music-creating-software" (e.g. ProTools, Cubase, Logic, REAPER). All of them have their own advantages/disadvantages. I personally use REAPER because it's free, just as full-featured as the others, and its layout seems the least cluttered. The biggest con for it is that it's extremely counter-intuitive. I spent a month learning and getting angry with it before I had any idea what to do. Since then, it's worked seamlessly, though. Easiest to use from the get-go is probably Cubase or ProTools.

Also, you'll need something to plug your instruments into your computer. That's an audio interface. Nucleus87 uses an M-Audio Fasttrack Ultra 8R, because he's ritzy. I use a Roland Tri-Capture, which will eventually need replaced (I want to plug more things into it), but would do everything you need for around $150. A more attractive middle-man would be the PreSonus AudioBox, which allows you to plug in two mics or two guitars, or a combination.

If you want to simulate guitar amps, get AmpliTube 3, either the full version or the free-version (Custom Shop). There are others you could use, like Guitar Rig or Waves GTR, but I've always been happy with the layout and sound emulation in AmpliTube, and the Custom Shop feature allows you to buy individual parts from the full version on an as-needed basis. Also, here's a video of some other great, free amp plugins. Oh, and HeadCase from AcmeBarGig. It's $60, but there are also some great free plugins from their main site.

Something to keep in mind: if you can find any way around amp simulation, do it. EQ-ing and impulse-response adjustments to get a "real" sound are at least a bitch-and-a-half, never mind finding good effects. It can be done (it's actually what I use), but it'd be much, much easier and sound better out-of-the-box to just save up, buy an amp, and find a way to connect your computer to it.
