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..

Yeah if you get into the controls of the "amplifier" section there are lots of tubey/warmth paramaters to be tweaked. Various of the included stomp boxes/EQs can help with this as well.

Very glad to hear you could help him get a new daw and new plugin working remotely! Team viewer is a very handy thing just now. I'm glad he liked THU smile.gif The Starter version you got him is a great value. Especially with the FRIEDMAN add ons. Some killer tones available and it wont break the bank. Glad he could borrow a kemper as well! For the single it's a great idea. I'm sure he will be able to get a great tone with THU once he gets used to the various controls. In the new version you can select which kind of tubes you want for the pre amp and power amp and such which is something I think they borrowed from BIAS!
