LeCto is a guitar amp simulator inspired by an american modern high gain head.

This simulator has 2 channels with 3 modes on each channel. It can go from crunch (raw mode) to modern high gain (modern mode).
  • oversampling : determines the signal oversampling; up to 8x
  • mono/stereo : determines the signal routing
  • input : controls the magnitude of the input signal
  • drive : controls the amount of gain
  • low : controls the low frequency
  • mid : controls the mid frequency
  • high : controls the high frequency
  • presence : presence control
  • resonance* : controls the amount of resonance resulting from the interaction with the speaker cabinet

Sounds too thin and tiny, recto of Reamp is far superior

Very impressed in about 60 seconds with critical performance I look for from an amp or floor processor to hit complicated shredding and arpeggios on. The clipping compresses well. The EQ compresses properly and gets rid of transient noise. This with appropriate clipping helps round the edges of the sound wave rather than chop them off and we literally here the shatter effect from electrons scattering in the signal. I paired it with the free Pedlas VST on this site, and it will genuinely serve for me to record direct at least in SOME capacity as a shredder, instrumentalist and electronic musician. This VST showed me there are others for free out there that perform if we go through the process, but this is still a top of the line winner.

This amp screams with the right pre. Check out the Satan's Amp of Doom recipe.

This is the best Mesa Boogie Dual rectifier out there. It's nearly 10 yrs old too. Not as pushed as Amplitube 5. This has a warm non fuzzy sound, with great headroom. Great guitar amp.

My computer won't let Logic Pro x use the plugin when I try to open it.

I think its because logic uses AU and this plugin only supports vst for windows. If your on mac then it seems like there is an AU version.

A great sounding amp for metal be warned though, if you put this thing over 2x oversample, it will devour your cpu's soul!

Great tone options. My favorite Mesa sim, I use it within peavey revolver and have made dozens of great sounding presets.
