LeCto features

  • Up to 8x oversampling.
  • Mono/stereo routing.
  • Modern, Raw, and Vintage modes.
  • Controls for input, drive presence and resonance (the amount of resonance resulting from the interaction with the speaker cabinet, only active on modern mode).
  • Low, mid and high frequency controls.
  • Note: LeCto is only an amp simulator, so you need to use a cabinet simulator.

LeCto is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows. A non-SSE2 code version is also available.
