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!!!

Unchained by Live Ready Sound for Overloud TH-U (Rig Library demo)

It’s a first! A first of what?!! Have Guitar doin’ a demo of a rig library for Overloud’s TH-U! Yep, this video is about the rig library Unchained from Live Ready Sound for the Overloud TH-U!

You might recognize this one as the Unchained pack is also available from Live Ready Sound for the Kemper Profiling Amp. These rigs seeks to recreate the sound of a Metropoulos DVL-1 amp head. According to Metropoulos webpage their vision was to “build the ultimate plexi-style 100-watt amplifier with maximum flexibility and functionality and zero compromise in components, signal purity, and tone”. And it is designed together with William DuVall (of Alice In Chains).

So what does this rig library bring to the table? 144 rigs! These have been created with five different cabinets, five different mic’s and boosted with six different drive pedals – that a massive diversity!

Just a short notice; I haven’t yet reviewed the Overloud TH-U itself yet but that is coming… it is the latest iteration of Overlouds amp sim, available for Windows and IOS. It comes with amps, cabs and a plethora of effects. You can use your own impulse response files (for cab’s) and it can be used for both guitar and bass. One thing that makes this stand out is of course the Rig Player. Described as “allows you to reproduce rig models created by capturing real setups” – well, I think this is the closest you can get to a Kemper without actually buying one. And as you can see in the video it even looks quite like a Kemper toaster unit!

There we are, hope you liked this video and thanks for watching! If you wanna support me, I have provided a subscription link just below here. Much obliged if You do! An eternal flow of gratitude to all you who already subscribes – Thank You!!!
