All user reviews for the Overloud TH2
stompboxjon's review"3d microphone placement"
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.

azertyvince's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad!"
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.
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.
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.

loacdijon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Finally a sound Lamps (quasi) ... we believe!"
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)
I put moultes stars as "amp simulation", not as "amp".

Oli_34160's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I plussoie! Best of all!"
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!

beo.morphos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The Best just"
Core i5 2500K, 8GB, 128GB SSD, 2TB HDD
Windows 7 x64
Studio One 2 Pro
USB 2.0 Audio Interface Focusrite 2i2 Scalett
TH2 goes almost unnoticed in the performance of the PC trouble sandstone high track counts.
I Metal exclusively.
It's simple, I've tried everything! Not passing Guitar RIG, AmpliTube, Revalver MKIII, all plugins Freeware possible and imaginable (louse, TSE ...), all pulses (lice, Kefir, and Recabinet company).
I stopped on TH2 surpasses everything beautiful world!
A warm, natural harmonics reaction, a reaction that resembles what an amp!
I took the lead with all the plugins mentioned above to make EQ for hours ringing. With TH2 I just put a high cut and low cut basta!

planetslide's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The best amp simulation"
Ordi Vista64 Core2 Quad 4 GB RAM
TH2 trs is not resource-intensive computing, which is nice trs. It does not crash on my machine.
Its sound quality is good trs, even if competitors are not far away (Guitar Rig for clean sounds, Revalver, etc.). And that a final mix is no longer too much diffrence .
I use it for a few months after having a good time feat TH1 (TH1 appeared to me much before I used Amplitube suprieur).
TH2 TH1 is better than lgrement at The definition and provides more opportunities for amps and rglages. Aesthetics, he is a little more fun.
I know it's the best amp emulator, the most raliste, particularly in terms of "feeling" when playing the guitar. It is almost like playing on an amp rel, and rev it enjoyable. Prvoir be a good sound card for rduire latency.
Personally, I use it mostly for vintage sounds / grain crunch DIFFERENT than my amp. Indeed, the large distortion of TH2 is still far from the true quality of my ENGL Fireball lights, like delay / chorus / phaser / etc. sound a bit "plastoc" ct what my fate GFORCE. Fortunately, because this is not the same budget!
But, again, in a (good) mix, I think there are ways to bluff everyone with TH2 in believing that the real stuff is used t. 'll Cost the DMOS on the official website is awesome!
In short, a super soft to play and his models home for really cheap compared its services.

clairegis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Must See! very far"
Manual survollé quickly but very simple
MacBook White Intel 2008 4GB of ram
it's plug and play! and super stable
I use it since May ...
the sound is pure, whatever the guitar with a real dynamic (ie with my stick or my hohner with EMG fitted with Roxane Gibson 490R & 498T Seymour Duncan mounted on triple shot that are in series / parallel or a microphone or B I found one split in a different grain).
the amps are really perfect all the effects are of high quality
management background noise is really effective.
short nothing more to say it is not very expensive (even if it made me KDO ..)
"I had tried a lot of stuff guitar rig 3, 4, ReValver, podfarm, AmpliTube, since I have dropped everything ... for TH2
with the added ease of control premium noon ... (Without the rig kontrol is not gd thing with GR)
after we actually would like more amps and effects can be on the next versions ...
to try an emergency!

diasjff's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" extraordinary"
Yes, like traditional software. Then you have to adjust the characteristics of the audio in "audio settings" is everything.
The general configuration is easy?
Yes, we have easy access to all the different simulation. It is a provision in "chains" of input to output.
Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
No, I'm under seven and it works very well in 64 bit more.
The manual is clear and sufficient?
No need, we learn on the job but there is a manual very rich ...
What is the configuration of your computer?
4-core amd processor, 3.1 GHz
4 gigabytes of rams
external sound card: POD Studio GX, no latency, no really ...
The software works he correctly on this configuration?
Largely, it is not very resource-intensive system.
This software + hardware is stable?
For how long have you been using it?
Recently, my opinion is perhaps not entirely objective but it is really the road ...
Did you try many other models before getting this one?
Guitar Rig 4, POD Farm 2, AmpliTube 3.
What thing do you like most/least about it?
most: the sound, power, apparently it simulates really well, better than guitar rig 4 yet fine. The plethora of effects, amps, Brunetti, Randall, sounds warm, clear, incisive, it's damn good, I've never played on the tube amp but some say that this simulation is close. available in "chain". The looper also super interesting and it records very well, whereas with guitar rig 4, it sizzled ...
Minimum: for now, I see no ...
What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
