I will not repeat the technical aspects.
Download-> plugin-> play
Like most freeware ;)


Consumption very acceptable, even quad tracking in "high quality" (recommended).
Remember to put "single" ;)


Turning to what matters the sound.

After testing all that human creativity has produced since the first Simulanalog in software and hardware the first POD, this plugin is still in the top hi-gain amps in 2012.
Even after years of use, the big sellers (GR, Amplitube ...) are still struggling to get to level ... preferring to multiply models rather than changing the method.

With RevolutionZ, Legion and the TSE X50, it is one of the best hi-gain dynamic level.
Revalver is also very dynamic, but it is too aggressive in the treble.

This is a blessing: most hi-gain amps on top are dynamic, for me, free: D

This amp does not necessarily require an overdrive in front (TSE 808 ...) because it is very sharp, but this may be a "plus".
It's sharp, net of adjustments can be very effective over their entire range (unlike Lecto, very rough draft without overdrive).
Even the clean sound is very interesting, alive.
It is therefore very versatile and will be surprising in the records other than hi-gain.

With a good entry HiZ or direct box, and LeCab2 behind this amp, you're the king of big sound extreme metal, and more.
While not having a transistor pedal that sounds its cold and lifeless.

Try urgently, especially compared to the (non) competition: D

PS: And also the other test that I mentioned, you will not be disappointed ;)
RevolutionZ particular, mostly unknown (remember to click on the logo).
PPS: I'm not a fan of 10/10, but there ...

Quick and easy installation


i5 computer 4 gb of ram, I run this plug in samplitude, ultra stable config


2 days, I've tried pod xt live line six, Amplitube, GTR waves .... I was looking for a good simulation of hi gain tranchanteà the fear factory and there I think I have finally found the holy grail! I actually added a simulation of tube screamer gtr upstream and noise gate at end of string. this sound! ... I do not keep coming back! This plug is free it's still amazing, it is far above all others! I even compared to face several micro different from my mesa, and there always the same conclusion! Lepou is over!

Note that I HIZ between the guitar in the Universal Audio 610 MK2 with EMG 81.

In short, as said above if you want big sound without the right amp and many spend nothing and download Lepou simulation, the others are also very good (not all thoroughly tested) must also take the cab for simulation and HP pulses. if I have the tps I would put excerpts online

Mac on the implementation could not be simpler. Just copy the components in the library folder that goes well

No need for manual


I use an iMac with Mac OS X Lion and Garageband as host (the Le456 is a plug in it needs a host application)


I use it for 15 days.
I play only at home (never snooze, concert or other) and I had a rather bad at low volume with amps.
I tried to see Amplitube and Guitar Rig 3 Free 5 player (both free) history to consider replacing the amps by modeling, solution that I was immediately captivated.
And it works very well. I can finally have a quiet home good quality sound through headphones (or speakers using a Mac). Furthermore, as these two programs can be used as component audio in Garageband, I can add a small drum track more fun than a metronome.
Brief but happiness, but his side I was looking for something better and then can change amp gives it a click cravings experimentation.

By doing some research, I came across the site Lepou, Canadian author of these plug ins, which is being rewritten for the Mac.
Most of his productions is aimed more at big sound that spot, but it Le456 is a marvel in its clear (I have a Mexican Strat).
A priori it is a modeling amp ENGL Fireball ...

There are two channels, bright and saturated, and almost all settings that have been on a real amp.
I do not find that in aggregate, at least for what I've tried, either hyper credible modeling for large sounds (except maybe the Soldano of Amplitube) but its clear it works very well.
It has clear sound Le456 giant, ultra clear, slightly fat, powerful, and crystalline nervous .. of happiness to the headphone
It is free but I think I'll send a few dollars donation to the author (there is a link on its website) because frankly his stuff is better than Guitar Rig or Amplitube for my use.

Quick and easy installation!!
Setup could not be more simple.
No incompatibility with Samplitude.
No need to book.


Dell, 2GB ram, Motu mk3 ultaralite of samplitude. ... It rolls


I use this plug dedpuis yesterday, it's simple look no further, do not buy any software, I have all tests (revalver1, 2.3, Guitar Rig, AmpliTube ...) This one is simple ism and is a die for,
it's simple I board never had such a good guitar sound on my squenceur, even having tried other plugs or having been taken of the amp.
The grain is raliste, very warm and powerful, so be it n clear (which of us is a marvel ...), better than what I get with my microphone and my pramp.
Try it with the plug diffrent speaker simulations available on the site, killing one !!!!!!!!!
I would do the choice of taking the trouble to plug this Tlcharger !!!^^
