TH2: How to Create Great Guitar Tone
In this tutorial, Matt Tuggle shows you how to dial in a delicious guitar tone, using TH2. It features a step-by-step guide while soloing his guitar sound, and featuring music by The Harm.
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."
"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."

"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!"
"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!"
