[Harp-L] Amp Modeler

I play harp with a rock band out of Canada when they're down in the mid-Atlantic.  A lot of times we play small to medium sized bars, and my little 67 Gibson Explorer is great for those venues.  However, we sometimes play outdoor concerts for large crowds or in larger rooms.  My amp can sometimes get by when mic'd, but I'd prefer something that is louder.   I was thinking of buying a larger amp, but I've decided on a modeler to plug into the PA, because when the band is not around, I'll never use the large amp.  I also don't really want to fork over $1000+ for a large amp.  I normally play through an SM-57 or RE-10 mic.  Can someone give me a suggestion on what I should buy?  I also plan to purchase one of Richard Hunter's patch kits.  I don't really need a whole lot of different sounds.  I'm actually happy with the tone I get out of my Gibson, and it works with the rock music I'm playing with them.  Of course, I would definitely experiment with other
 tones if they were available.  How exactly is the patch downloaded and then uploaded to the modeler?  I tried to search for this info in the Harp-L archives, but the search isn't working for me.
