SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I’ve used this both stand alone and as a plugin in Logic Pro 9 with Ownhammer and Redwirez external Impulse Responses (the software however comes with 778 own IR)

I have a Mac Pro 2.66 Quad Core with 8 GB of ram and a White Macbook with Intel Core 2 Duo Cpu with 4 GB of Ram.

Apogee Duet 2 as interface.

The manual is well written


OVERALL OPINION

I have to admit that in my opinion Peavey done a really good job with this amp sim. Together with the free LePou plugins, it is the best amp simulator.
However where it really shines is in the High Gain deparment. Especially the 6505+ and the Orange simulations. The thing that makes this software unique is the fact that in the advanced settings of the amp you can virtually swap and change tubes and components. In this way you can create your custom “mods” without the fear of being electrocuted!

Peavey does a really good job especially in the simulation of its own gear.
I think they put more attention because they have the original schematics.
The included effects are ok, but I prefer to use external plugins for that.
However I advice to buy the HP version of it (it includes only the Peavey Related Amps), it’s cheaper and it will give you great results. Use it together with the free LePou Plugins and you will be more than happy!
