Th2 Overloud (software guitar amp). Can this be used for anything else?

My friend has the TH2 overloud. it simulates a real guitar amp on your computer, my question is this can also be used as a plug-in. does anyone know if this can be used with a synth routed through it? Ive tried with no success so i cannot really understand why it was be used as a plugin and not so much as a software instrument

Consulting the manual which can be downloaded from their site shows that they're talking about using it as a plug-in in a host, but the names of the usual suspects (VST, RTAS and AU) don't appear.

Installing the demo version, however, shows that you can install it as VST plugin, RTAS or standalone. It's kind of confusing; what should be a multi-selection is a dropdown (single selection) in the demo, so make sure you set the folder to your VST plugins folder.

So the answer would be yes. Putting a synth through it should be pretty trivial when you have a DAW running; even standalone it should offer you a number of inputs.

What DAW are you running and on which platform?

There's a compatibility page on the site which indeed lists the names of the usual suspects...including AU.
