    This plug-in sounds incredible. LePou is quite the programmer. Now that he has purchased a Mac, I am excited to start seeing some of these plug-ins for Apple products.

    fuuuuuck!

    that sounds like someone smashing glass with sledgehammers while drenched in fuel and set on fire, in a pool filled with glowing embers, in a post-apocalyptic world filled with smoke!

    in other words, huge and fat and awesome sounding shit!

    I've been messing with the Lecto beta and Recabinet all weekend and I'm amazed at the metric f*ktonne of post-processing it takes to get useful tones out of it. Lecto -> Recabinet Mesa 4x12 is just flabby bass, nasal mids and screechy highs. TS in front tightens up the bass but that leaves the nasal an' the scratchy - the amount of EQ scalpel cutting required is just ridiculous.

    So: Am I doing something way wrong, or is that how it is??

    (Btw I'm not criticizing the Lecto plugin, I'm sure hooking up a real Mesa DR head straight to a computer would be pretty ugly too in its raw state. I'm actually tempted to try that with my Mesa .22 Caliber combo...but that's a different story.)

    with any amp sim you would need some tuning. If you go a few posts up, i posted a clip using lecto. For that i put the bass almost at 0, and the resonance is really important beacuase it takes away the flabby bass. Put that at the minimum before you lose all bass. Then i have my mids at max and high and presence at 60% about. I used recabinet ghandi with a 121 or 421 mic. Then eq out the top end using a low pass at about 7K and lower the high mids around 1.5K with a q of 2.

    Damn it seems that I can't get any good tones out from these new ampsims. :lol:
    I guess I stick with my Le456. :D
