stompboxjon's review"3d microphone placement"

Overloud TH2
The Over Loud TH2 helped me get that perfect tone. It has 45 amp channels with over 120 different modes. It allows 3d positioning of the microphones in a visual format; I was able to get everything with the tone the exact way that I wanted it to sound. I have used other plug ins similar to this before but most of them took a lot of CPU to run, surprisingly this didn’t take a lot of CPU to run and it is very affordable.


Installing this plug ins was quick and easy, it only took a few minutes and it comes with a manual to help with any questions the user may have. You can also run this plug in as a standalone if you choose, though I didn’t like it in standalone mode because I liked to work with other instruments in my DAW as well with the TH2. There are a lot of presets in this plug in but I do not think they are all that good, I prefer to start from a standard preset (something simple) and build around that until I am happy with the sound I get.


There are 20 pedals and rack effects to work with and 18 microphones to choose from! At this price I didn’t not expect to be able to get so many options to mold my sound with. All of the parameters and effects can be tempo synced to the BPM in my DAW too. I do recommend downloading the demo of the TH2 just to make sure that it will run smoothly on your system first because I have read some reviews where people say that it didn’t run smooth (maybe because they didn’t have enough RAM).
The demo can be downloaded directly from the OverLoud website and then if you choose to keep it you can just play for it and have the full version.

Overloud TH2
Nothing to add.


What performance?

The sound is rather better than some competitors (Guitar Rig 5, Amplitube 3).
There is a good sound quite easily.
that sounds pretty bad.


Tested on monitor speaker and headphone.

The pros:
1) The sound (in fact I think there are more serious compared to the competition cited serious stand out more).
2) Simplicity to find
3) The interface is quite pleasant unlike Guitar Rig 5 in particular)
4) We like the 7-band eq pedal (reactive rather well).
5) Possibility to build a chain parallel effects (including amp).
6) Ability to mix 2 amps directly on the amp itself.
7) There is a knob on the amp representing the volume knob on the guitar to those with high gain pickups. This has the function of a gain knob.
For high gain amp, it is very effective for a little more boost.

The -:
1) eq knobs on the amp are not very reactive, it's quite a shame,
must be added to equalize seven bands chain to bring out everything.
2) The tremolo is not tremolo-pan.
3) Univibe could be better quality.
4) The reverbs are pretty sketchy, I would have liked something more complete (why not with the ability to download IRs as in Guitar Rig 5 for example), a little more reverb type (cathedral, stage, arena dark hall, iceverb, hotverb, darkverb ...)
ability to place the instrument in space Stereo 3D.
5) Classification of amplifiers is somewhat surprising, more amps name may not be clear at first use.
6) The amps are in the form of a single amp. Z'auraient could also find a look closer to each amp as among competitors (it is good for the eyes).

*: Some speak sizzling => see maybe latency problem on the sound card or problem input output level, or saturation of the card.

Easy, but manual in English, not very cool for non-English speakers who spend € 150 anyway.
Do not worry, we get it anyway without the manual.


Core 2 Duo 3GHz / Win 8.1 external sound card (M-audio or audio interface MOXF6)
Everything works fine, no significant latency (well to my ears), no crash.

The simulation also works standalone (well not having to run a sequencer for a gas plant gratouiller quickly). Pick more, fewer mice! ...

The interface is not a gas plant, everything is to the point.


The clean sounds (which are very good) worth those of other simulations (Amplitube, Guitar RIG ...)

The basis for me is the primary sound, it must be good. For effects everyone does well in general.
The quality of the effects is equal to the other, so fine, the settings are significant.

For crunch and distorted sounds, Th2 Overloud is now well above the rest and approaching near my amp tube (Dean Markley).
It is especially high mids that sound (to my ears) quite synthetic in others, and that we do not believe ...

There is frankly stunning!

I even found the love of his feelings that I had 30 years ago on my body JMC800 3 (HardRockeste my time) ... (I had a small tear to the eye, sniff ...). I calmed down since: Rock, blues, funk)

With some manipulations, it sounds very quickly, unlike Guitar Rig eg. or you spend a lot of time in the end a rather disappointing result, its not a very consistent and especially "messy" ill defined (except for clean sounds).

I recommend it for the quality of basic sounds (clear, but especially the crunch and saturated), and the ease to obtain quickly a very good sound.

The price should more attractive (call 99 € eg price) with fewer options (effects) can be.
(This is true for the other charge simulations.)

Now this is a very good simulation, yet the sound of a real tube amp in my opinion. But when we approach this quality, the comparison becomes a little suggestive.

It must be taken for a simulation that lets you play with headphones or small monitor speakers and having fun (that's what counts in the end, right?) Without stirring up the neighborhood.

The pro preferred probably still save a real tube amp, with its dynamics, fullness of sound, its definition, its imperfections ... grind the sound manually short the charm of a tube amp.

Th2 Overloud reaches almost, others are a little behind (for quality and "truth" sounds)

Amic '

I put moultes stars as "amp simulation", not as "amp".

Overloud TH2
Installation without pb. You choose your audio interface / midi standalone or integrated on the vst in his DAW and go! No incompatibility with my gear. The manual? why? Perhaps for the implementation afternoon ... Unless it has already gone through TH1.


Laptop Dell Inspiron 9400 Core Duo 1.66 GHz / 2GB DDR2 667Mhz
SATA HDD 7200trs/500Go
Windows XP SP2
Edirol UA 101

Excellent stability, latency inaudible (- 6/7ms)


I use it for 5-6 months. I had TH1, and outperformed all other sims except perhaps Revalver. But greed CPU and the difficulty of installing it, placed it back in Overloud. With Revalver III, Peavey remade the delay. But the release of TH2 has finally killed the game. Clear sounds, distorted sounds, effects, implementation noon stability, minimum consolidated CPU, GUI, reaction game, sensations "organic" compliance instruments, etc.. Everything is perfect in my opinion. As someone said in a comment, I rediscovered the joy of play. Cherry (s) on the cake: The simus Brunetti, Randall Soldano and to die for!

I love everything! No noticeable defect in comparison with the quality of the whole.

I tried everything (Amplitube, Guitar Rig, Revalver, Izotope trash, etc.).. No one who does weight.
Try it and you will understand!
