Amplifier simulator demos

14 amp sim demos are available, all recorded by Simon Chenu, excellent musician and guitar teacher.

I will add these sound demos as they are ready.

These demos are extracts from famous songs, as well as two short tunes created by Simon in Blues and Metal genres.
Song list:

ACDC - Back in black
Chic - Le freak
Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to heaven (solo)
Metallica - Enter sandman
Niagara - J'ai vu
Nirvana - Smells like teen spirit
Oasis - Wonderwall
Pink Floyd - Time (solo)
Simon's Blues - Simon Chenu
Simon's Metal - Simon Chenu
The Animals - House of the rising sun
The Doobie Brothers - Long train running
The White Stripe - Seven nation army

Each extract was recorded twice, with three different guitars:
Les Paul (brand: SR Guitar)
Stratocaster American Deluxe (brand: Fender)
Telecaster Deluxe (brand: Fender).

By clicking on the "settings" of each demo, you will get access to a detailed description of the impulses used and the stereo panning. Also, with each simulator tested, you can download the preset file containing the settings I've used. You may of course use them as they are or edit them to your liking!

All extracts are not yet available for each of the amp sims but eventually, the aim is to have all extracts available for all amp sims tested here. As this is very time consuming, it will take me some time to complete this project.

Thanks Simon!

Je signale que les fichiers mp3 sur la page du tuto "mixage des guitares solos" sont en fait les fichiers des guitares rythmiques.
Merci pour ce tuto, et le reste du site. :)

I wanted to thank you for these instructions!

I tried this today and did a few iterations of trying to capture my cab. It worked pretty well. The sound of the IR is pretty close to my cab.

If I spend some more effort to set things up better, I will get a better result.

But without your instructions, this wouldn't have even happened. So thanks again!

Glad to be of help! Enjoy your IRs!

First off id just like to say that this entire site is an absolute GEM for vst guitar amp sims, ive been using plugins like lepou's le456 and LeCab and many others you host here on this site since i was 13 way back in 2013, ive always used fl studio and as such i am using 12 64 bit with an i5 and 8gb of ram hp laptop. Here soon i will be upgrading to the latest version of fl, with an i7, 12gb of ram lenovo laptop, all my setups are running windows 10. im getting a usb interface for my guitar tomorrow so im finding all the plugins im going to need, and this site by far has literally everything i need for amp sims. I have never even found a copy of the Revolution Z plugin, the sites been dead since i was a kid. I wish you and this entire site the best of luck, wishes and prosperity, i would love to see this site last for the years to come, so much of this software is really hard to find, amazing archive :)
