Rig To Model

THU Rig to Model

TH-U is able to load rig models created by sampling real setups.

The Rig To Model (R2M) proprietary technology allows Overloud engineers to sample and capture the response of an entire rig, including the nonlinear and dynamic response of the amplifier, the cabinet, the microphones, the mic preamplifier and the room sound. Rig To Model technology allows to capture both analog and digital setups. The Rig Player, integrated into TH-U, allows to reproduce any nuance of the sampled rigs.

Amp Tweak

Thanks to its innovative dsp technology, TH-U features a new panel which allows to change the pre and power tubes models, as well as to simulate the action of a variac. This allows to mod any amplifier model with an almost limitless combination of tubes and opens the product to new sound capabilities.

The New Frontier of Guitar Amp & FX Software

TH-U is the reimagination of Overloud's highly acclaimed TH3 amp modeling software. TH-U features 239 models, the world's largest collection, in a single plug-in. Building on the powerful features of TH3, TH-U adds:

  • 15 new amplifiers (92 total), including the Superlead and Superbass models, Polytone jazz amplifiers and DVmark Triple 6 head
  • 14 new cabinets (52 total)
  • Rig Player (with 20 factory rigs) – reproduces rig models created by sampling real studio and stage setups
  • Amp Tweaks – modify amplifiers by changing preamp and poweramp tubes, as well as simulating the action of a variac
  • Brand new FXShimmer Reverb and a Shimmer Delay
  • Built-in convolver to load external guitar cab IRs
  • An improved and redesigned Cabinet IR module
  • A new multitrack looper
  • Search function on the preset and banks
THU What's New

Authorized modeling

TH-U includes 45 models approved by original manufacturers Randall®, Brunetti®, DVmark® and THD®

THU Authorized Models

Intelligent Midi Setup

Setting up a MIDI floorboard is as easy as clicking an element into TH-U interface and pressing the corresponding pedal in the MIDI floorboard. TH-U learns the MIDI connection and uses it into any preset automatically. Gigs have never been so fun with TH-U!

Bass Models Included

TH-U includes 3 bass amplifiers, 2 bass cabinets, 1 bass graphic equalizer, a bass tuner as well as a preset bank entirely dedicated to bass tones.

THU Included Bass Cabinets

3D Cabinet Simulation

THU 3D Cabinet Simulation

TH-U offers a matrix of 4 microphones which can be placed anywhere in the 3D space in front and even behind the cabinet. Just drag a microphone and place it where you want.
Change the relative distance between microphones to obtain creative phasing effects, just like you do in a real cabinet room. 6 different room types can be selected.

The ReSPiRe 2 technology allows to choose between the real response of the cabinet and a processed version optimized to fit into a mix and avoid frequencies overlap with the other instruments.
On bass cabinets you have a separate control over the woofer and the tweeter levels.

THU Creative Effects

Creative Effects

TH-U is not just an amplifier replacement. It is a creative tool which allows to craft your personal tone and explore the boundaries of your instrument. Transform your electric guitar into an acoustic guitar. Create synth-like tones with the ring modulator. Turn the guitar into an organ with the organ-tone-maker. Import any Impulse Response from third part libraries to extend the TH-U tones without limits.

Expand TH-U with Rig Libraries

TH-U's Rig Libraries are a perfect way to add more tones and styles to TH-U. Grab the first available library now at introductory pricing!: British Classics

Music Tech Magazine
"...the sound quality speaks for itself, and for crunchy metal sounds in particular it's in a league of its own"

"In practice, the majority of the presets sound stunning, with the 3D mic positioning adding a subtle ambience to the tones (a nice touch is the shadow the mic casts on the amp behind, indicating its depth). From wailing, nasal wah Solos to deep octave funk and blislering hard metal tones, the TH-1 inslantly adds character and quaiity to any dry guilar signal."


Electronic Musician
"TH1 sounds phenomenal. The depth and nuance produced on clean tones — always the acid test with such software — is palpable, and the feature set is Grand Canyon-deep."


Sound on Sound
"Overall, TH1 is a very serious and hugely flexible piece of amp/FX modelling software that strikes a good balance between ease of use and features. The library of components is impressively comprehensive while the Smart Controls feature makes it easy to set up ways to tweak your favourite patches without having to get back into deep editing. Live players will also be impressed by the MIDI control side of the program, which I’m told is also going to be improved significantly in the next revision. Definitely one to check out if you want something a bit deeper that isn’t too scary!"


Computer Music
"TH1's performance is incredibly impressive. The CPU hit is astonishingly low, so using multiple instances simultaneously in a mix is totally viable, as is glitch-free live performance. TH1 didn't crash or misbehave once during our testing and even ran without a hitch on a dinky Samsung NC10 netbook!"
"TH1 has so much going for it that it just might be the best all-round guitar software you can buy. Bravo, Overloud!"
