He'll start recording his bands 4th single today (will be released by Sony music Turkey), a friend of his let him borrow a kemper and he's been comparing it with Overloud THU.

But before getting into that, he was using cubase 5 with is one of the most popular cracked DAW other there. It's a 10 something y.o. version of cubase and it can't make THU work. He was so used to that DAW and was almost afraid to switch to another. I convinced him to try Reaper and offered him help to show the stuff he needed.

I didn't even go to his place (Covid), we installed teamviewer. Its a program that connects computers, I could basically see and use whatever he see's on his screen and talk through a mic.. In about an hour he learned everything he needed like basic editing, punch-in, multitrack render...he's very happy now smile.gif

Also the THU he had was cracked and caused a virus problem. I pointed him to buy THU rock+the friedman pack (he prefers that tone) which is a huge saving compared to the full version if you're ok with 1 main amp sound. He been living on teaching online since covid so though money is tight, still an affordable option.

As for the comments on THU vs Kemper, he found them to be near identical tonally but Kemper sounding warmer if you focus on the details. So for this single, he might be using the Kemper for the fun of it but likely use THU for the rest of the album.

PS I could go right now to compare them myself but cause of the Covid thing probably won't, maybe if he needs serious assistance (cause I sometimes get calls where engineering skills needed) then I'll hear for myself and post back here..

Sharing for those who are into mixing;

If one knows what a multiband-comp. is, imagine this tool as a super detailed version of it but actively eq'ing rather than compressing. So any sort of harshness, deessing, mastering peak pretty much as useful as an eq.

This will be a big deal for likely the next 2-3 years for Mac users, specially when they become buyers again.
