I'm in college so I use amp sims to do all my playing, but getting a massive nasty fuzz tone is incredibly hard. I've been using Lepou's LeXTAC and I can get some awesome distorted tones from it but I can't seem to find a suitable fuzz to make it even nastier. Most vst fuzzes I've tried emulate that warm 60s fuzz, I want something more aggressive, along the lines of Electric Wizard's Dopethrone.

Any ideas? Suggestions?

I mean nasty as in ultra distorted. Thick and syrupy with a lot of bite. If anything I should be diming the bass and mids and scooping the highs. Give Funeralopolis by Electric Wizard a listen, that's the kind of tone I'm going for.

Chain an overdrive VST in front of it. I say an overdrive instead of a fuzz because most fuzz VSTs try to replicate the 60s fuzz you're talking about. Either that, or there's just way too much fuzz for any practical use. An overdrive on the other hand should add the warmth you're looking for and nudge the distortion on over into the realm of epicness. I've used Xtac quite a bit and on the red channel with an overdrive it's pretty beastly. If necessary chain an EQ after everything and add some mids for bite.

A couple of good ODs:

One that's a touch better than TSS is the one that comes with the SimulAnalog package (for free) below. I like the Xtac, but you might find that the JCM900 model that comes with this to be a bit more of what you're looking for:

Good luck
