Revalver 4 by Peavey – First impression/Demo/Review

Time to have a look at another “guitar software” – Revalver 4 from Peavey. Now this has been out for a long time, at least since 2014 from what I can tell. Still worth it? Could be.

So, Revalver 4 features most of what you should expect from a modern software for guitarists; you have a multitude of amp sim’s, pedals, rack units and cabs to choose from and add to that, they are highly customizable. You can combine amps with cabs, choose what microphone to use and the placing of that mic and there is also the possibility to add 3rd party VST plugins via a hosting component.

Revalver 4 is available for both Windows and Mac, it can be run both as a VST plugin or standalone. If you wanna buy it; the fully fledged Peavey Revalver 4 producer pack comes at 99.99 USD or you could buy an update from Revalver 3 for 49.99 USD. There’s an option to buy more amps, pedals etc if you fancy that, personally I would rather have seen that included or added as free updates but that is my personal opinion…

TH-U by Overloud – Demo/Review

Time for a review and demo of Overloud TH-U! TH-U is a software that holds almost everything a guitarist (and a bassist) could ask for – amplifiers (authorized models of real amps as well), cabinets, up to 4 out of 18 different microphones on the cab’s, effects, possibility to tweak the amps in high detail, rig player (kemper-like!) and more! It’s available for both Apple and Windows user, works on many different DAW:s and can also be run as a standalone software!

Pfew, that is a lot! But does it play well? That is the question that I am trying to work out in this review/demo video. It’s a looong video so I have included an index, see further down this description. And still I could have made it longer as there are some features I haven’t included like the built-in looper, the Amp Tweak technology and more. This is more like an overview where I really more concentrate on how it sounds with plenty of sound demos thrown in.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you liked the video! Wanna support me? Subscribe! A Big freakin Thanks to you subscribers!!!

S-Gear 2 by Scuffham – All the presets (Part 4: The Jackal)

This is a five part video series where I demonstrate all the presets that comes with Scuffham S-Gear 2, so if you want a thorough overview of this VST plugin this might be it. As there are five different amps with in S-Gear 2 I have splitt this into five different videos, that will be release over a five week period (mainly because I don’t wanna clutter up my channels video feed!).

As a general overview of S-Gear 2: it’s a software that can be run as standalone or as a plugin in your DAW (digital audio workstation). S-Gear comes with five different amps, speaker cabinetts, tuner and effects (you can also use 3rd part cabs/IR’s). Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Jackal – which should be based on a Soldano SLO 100. It’s capable of high gain sounds but also sounds great clean. It’s practically a modern high gain design that can cover any style from clean country twang to high gain rock and metal.

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on. So what guitar is used for which preset is kinda random! The way I recorded them is just hooking them up directly to my soundcard (Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd Gen) and then recorded some noodling in Reaper. Nothing added before or after, it is just as they come.

Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Wayfarer. None of the amps in S-Gear 2 are based on nay specific amp but The Wayfarer should be Mesa Boogie like, maybe like a MKIV and/or a high gain Fender amp. “Classic american” is what the manual has to say about it. It features 3 channels, many tone shaping switches, a graphic EQ that is placed between the preamp and the power amp. The three channels are as follows…

Lead I – Classic hot-rodded Fender, with rich overdrive sounds.
Lead II – can do very high gain, higher intensity than Lead I with a slightly more aggressive voicing.
Lead Drive: adjust the gain with additional gain stages, careful balancing is key for tight overdrive sounds.

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on.

In this video the focus is on the amp named The Duke, based on amps like Dumble ODS and Fender Super Reverb. It’s a medium gain amp, very dynamic and touch sensitive. It is also the amp that has the most presets included; 43 of them.

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on.

Feel free to have a look at my review video for more information about S-Gear 2 (link provided below). If you want to try it out, there’s a 10 day full featured trial available.

In this video the focus is on the amp named Custom ’57. It’s the latest addition to S-Gear 2 and is very much like a Fender Tweed Deluxe from the late 50’s. Simple controls – volume, bright, bass and level. You have some additional option in the power amp section (presence, hi-cut and sag) to which the Custom ’57 is very sensitive. This is also the amp within S-Gear with the fewest presets available, so the other videos will be longer!

Not sure if this is of interest but a note on the guitars used for these videos. The presets are not ordered by the amps so I just picked a guitar and recorded 10 presets, then I switched to another guitar and played another 10 presets and so on.
