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.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
