Hey thanks Swedishfish!!!!

These are awesome I pumped to try these out!!! The Baron amps are pretty cool, and if the Solar is anything like the "Satan" this should be good stuff.

Hello I wanted to ask two things here.

First and foremost, are you the REAL Beezow Doo-Doo?????

Second, does anyone know of any new amp sims that are free and can do metal well?

The original list is a couple of years old so I just figured I would ask.

When I plug in, none of these sims sound like they do in the videos at all. (I did not know until now about the hpf and lpf on Lecab, I will try that)

But im not even close, when I try Le456 it sounds like Doo Doo (no pun intended doo doo) and on the video here it actually sounds good :( Any other tips besides lecab hpf?

Thanks.
I am not the actual Beezow, but I am the one and only beezow of this forum. I once tried to have it changed to something else and was denied, so beezow I remain. :lol: Just keep tweaking man, it could be the IR's your using too, some are really good and some are not so good.

Well I must say the Baron sim kills any of the others I have tried and I have used many.

It was an immediate good tone.

I did like the Randal "Ola" sim at first but after a few minutes i noticed it was very mechanical and un-natural sounding.

I only tested with EZ drummer so it could be different in a real mix but for me, so far.

Baron for the win!!!!



PS I am facebook friends with the real Beezow haha.

I'm not sure what the tee is. Do you mean TSE?

Any Sim that I use I click download link, save as to my desktop, open with WinZip and extract to my vst folder.

I use Reaper and end result is getting the .DLL file to desired location.

So I'm interested in trying out some of these sims. I've downloaded off the russian link above, but it only comes up as a text file on my macbook. Am I missing a program that would open said files or are they not Mac OS friendly?

Refer to the first post....they are plugins, and you have to have a DAW of some sort to host them. Basically, download Reaper, put the files in your VST/plugin folder and load them in the DAW.

post edit:

lepou amp and cab sims are in. But the amp sim does not seem active - no tone change when I add it to fx chain (using reaper).

No idea how to solve this, and my brother isn't sure what the issue is either. I have restarted the program a few times.

Thanks for your help guys :yesway:

I have downloaded lecab, but it doesn show up in my VST list despite being in the same folder as the lepou amp sims. Also I have added the hybrit to my effects chain, but the sound hasn't changed. I imagine I have missed a step in monitoring.
Did you refresh your plugin list? Sometimes you have to for new plugins to show up. As far as the hybrit not being on, i'd probably need a screenshot. It could be as simple as the power button on the VST not being on though...I know lecab loads turned off so you have to click the power button to enable it.

So I have the amp sim working, but only on playback - not during monitor mode prior to recording. I am also in the process of getting those cab impulses and learning how to load them into lecab. (that folder list is a beast!)

I have my interface (scarlett 2i2) set to direct monitor with no actual monitors connected, and I think that is where the issue re: amp sim during monitor lies.

I recorded with the amp sim on, and it was clearly working.

Cheers :)

edit: turned off direct monitoring, everything seems to be working as it should. Now I need to learn how to dial this whole beast in haha.

AXP Flextron

About a month ago I have released a new free VST amp sim, the Flextron:



It is based on Crate Flexwave amp series and VOX Cooltron low-voltage tube circuit model. It's got embedded reverb and cab sim, which of course can be bypassed. In general it's a very flexible high-gain amp with some nice break-up tones as well.

This piece of software was made for KVR Audio Developer Challenge 2014 which ends today! So if you'd like to support freeware developers, there's still time to have a look at a couple of entries and vote for those you like.

And here is a short sound sample:
