203 models of the world's largest collection of amps, cabinets, effects racks, and pedals.

Designed by legendary DSP engineer Thomas Serafini, TH3 takes center stage in a world seemingly overrun with amp simulators. The sound quality, tone, and feel of TH3 is unmatched, whether you're after a clean lead or a distortion monster. TH3 does it all. TH3 includes all the same features found in TH1 and TH2, and builds upon its legendary status by adding authorized models of the highly-prized Randall®, DVmark®, Brunetti® and THD®, approved by original manufacturers, in addition to dozens of additional presets, pedals, cabinets, and other modeled elements.

Flexible Sound Chain
Unleash your creativity with the TH3 flexible sound chain: you can create any rig setup without the limitation of prefixed routing paths. The brand new zoom function allows to choose your preferred view of the sounchain: you can see the overview of your setup and control any parameter with just one click. Enlarge the models more than 100% to have a better view on live applications.

Intelligent MIDI Setup
Gigs have never been so fun with TH3! Setting up a MIDI floorboard is as easy as clicking an element into TH3 interface and pressing the corresponding pedal in the MIDI floorboard. TH3 learns the MIDI controller you are using and assigns it to virtually any parameter you choose.

Bass Models Included
TH3 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.

3D Cabinet Simulation
TH3 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 you to choose between the real response of the cabinet and a processed version optimized to fit into a mix to avoid frequencies overlapping with the other instruments. On bass cabinets you have a separate control over the woofer and the tweeter levels.

Creative Effects
TH3 is not just an amplifier replacement. It is a creative tool that allows you 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 TH3 tones without limits.

Comments about Overloud TH-3 Custom Guitar Effects Suite:

I have Sonar Platinum and so it has a lite version of Overloud's TH3 I tried it, liked it, and I found it on Musician's Friend for a really, really great price. I primarily use it as a plugin in Sonar, however you can use it as a standalone as well.

I have a AX/FX II in my hardware rack, however it's difficult to re-amp guitar lines in a DAW with it, since it lacks a plug-in. So I purchased TH3 for this purpose, which really works well. I have tried Amplitude series, Guitar Rig series, Line 6 POD series, and the Guitar Rig series. Overloud's TH3 really outshines them all, and sounds pretty close to a AX/FX II.

Most amp software sims can make good rhythm sounds, however the lead sounds are not very "life-like" if you've ever played through a tube-amp. A good amp sim will use good mic and cab sims, since this is really 1/2 your tone in amplified guitar. TH3 does this in spades, and has some really good Randall sims (which is why I purchased it). I'm not so sure I would gig with it, since you'd have to have a laptop, but it's great for studio/demo work. Also, the midi learn feature is really great and easy to use and I was able to set up my own midi foot controller.

The only problem is that it's noisy and doesn't have a built-in noise gate. They have a noise gate pedal, which I understand was put in as an afterthought, but I would have liked to have something like Guitar Rig has, which is built in and not preset-dependent.

Overall, Overloud's TH3 is really top notch and sounds very realistic, whether you want clean, crunch, or singing leads. Plus, it really has some great tube vibe! Plus, the price is fantastic and probably won't last! Also, the picture on the website is not of TH3 Guitar Suite, so don't be put off by that!
