MAN i'm bummed to miss it. It ended up on 2-3 sessions/day over the last couple years for demos.
Same here. You would think Slate and/or Scuffman would put out some type of promotion to get us transitioned.

I realize things happen, but this puts a bad taste in my mouth on both fronts.

Thank you, I will give it a try!

I am having the levels problem too.

If I want the level to hit the green zone I need to increase the instrument input level gain in my audio interface too much, the level meters in my daw show that the signal is clipping....I am using Reaper.

So...how do you guys get the right level into the VST? This is actually crucial to get the right tones from the presets...

My rme interface shows it clipping with an indicator light. I back off a bit from there.....about 1 o clock for me.

Yeah same here.
But have you seen the setting for humbuckers/single coils. I always forget to check that before recording.
Maybe that will help

Yes, I have seen the sensitivy low/high setting.

I wonder how hard do you strum your strings to get in the green zone.

I do the same thing, just roll back from clipping until I get my peaks in a safe zone. Then if I check the level in TH-U I have to hit the strings really hard (way harder than I usually do set the input levels in my DAW) to get into the green zone...

I think it would be better if they specify the appropriate input level in dBs

upgrade?

Is there a reasonable upgrade path for slate customers to the full version? The price on the Overloud web site seems a bit high to me.

Yes. Contact TH-U they will give you instructions. I upgraded since I decided not to renew my sub.

Hey guys, sorry I don't know if it was discussed in this thread, but are Choptone amps usable with 3rd party IR cabinets? (i.e. OwnHammer) I'll probably jump on some of them (Vai, 59R, maybe something else too) anyway, but I remember there were mentions that some Rig Player amps are incompatible with IRs. But are Choptones the same way?

Does anyone know if you still get the generic, IR loader cab in the non-full TH-U packages? I don’t want or need a million models of boutique high gain stuff. On the modeling side I mostly only use the Vox and Bassman. And I already have several rig libraries. But once I’m out of Slate land I still want to be able to load third party IRs. Looking at the “TH-U Funk and R&B” option which is like $50. They don’t list the IR cab in the features of any of the stripped down TH-Us but I can’t imagine it’s not in there?

No, not usable at all until they provide direct amp profiles
Steven Slate said they were going to look into it almost a year ago - but they never did.

switching off cabinet inside the profile leaves you with this awful halfbaked sound which sounds nothing like a direct out from a tube amp, so putting another IR on top of it doesnt sound good at all (muddy lows and closed highend - mot quite but almost like 2 cabs in series)
switching around built-in cabs works better though - just like on kemper.

btw kemper used to be the exact way until they started doing direct amp profiles

Unfortunately no ... I own the Rock version, and it doesn't have an IR Loader either.

Oh bummer. That’s lame.

Can you load your own IRs into the Rig Player, do you know?

Just use the free NadIR or something for your IR duties.

Interesting. Trying to load a cab ir from ownhammer with rig player crashed my DAW with THU full.

So you are saying the profiles from choptones etc should use it's own cab only?

Don't shut the cab off an add a cab ir module? I guess that was my mistake and it caused a crash.

Sorry, I mistyped that. I meant it to say "Can you load...?"

I don't know the answer. There is a cab section in the Rig Player and it lets you switch between cabs but (at least in stock config) only the cabs of other TH-U rigs. If you could load your own IRs into that section of the rig player that would solve the problem of Overloud not including the convolver/IR cab in anything less than TH-U Full.

no, you can switch the cab off in the rig player, the function is there just like on kemper.
but it doesnt lead to satisfying results because the profiles are not direct, meaning that switching the cab off results in artificial odd sound which doesnt represent how the real amp sounds direct.

you get strange artifacts, lowmid bump resonance and restrained high end
putting a 3rd party cabinet on top of it doesnt make things better as you would expect.

much better option is to change cabs within the rig player, just cabs from other rig player profiles
it works much better for some reason

Anyone got recs for good crunch tones/IRs? Don't mind plunking down a few bucks. Finally transitioning my S-Gear to this and coming up short on good crunch/dirty-clean tones.

Try the Vox cranked into the OH 412 ZLCS V30 OH1-05 IR (it's an Ownhammer IR that comes with the Slate version of TH-U).

The Vox and the Bassman will do really nice broken up/overdrive tones. Just sweep through all the Ownhammer IRs. Which one works is really dependent on what guitar you're playing.

Thank you for the response and the tip about switching between Choptones' other cabs! Considering the variety and combinations of mics and cabs should be very nice. Got 3 libraries which have more than 200 quite differently sounding profiles in total... Great value! But anyway hope they'll come up with some direct amp profiles which would be usable with 3rd party IRs.

Here for the gear
 

If we already own TH-U Full, and want that Champ?

Steve Slate. If we already own TH-U Full? What about that new champ amp and does other rig player profiles in Slate version. Are they available for us TH-U Full users, or only for users with the Slate version? Or can we purchase does extra that already only have TH-U Full? How can I get it?

I have to say, I did not originally like TH-U. But Using does choptones packs made my decision about how good it is, and that the Rig Player is a game changer in the amp sim world.

That made me want that champ amp you profiled for the Rig Player that Slate edition give away to theyr TH-U slate version users. Always dreamed about the champ amp. Or are does already in the TH-U Full. Sorry for asking this, I'm just jumping in to this new TH-U Full amp sim, and so in love with the Rig Player. Have no words for it.

So how should I get the champ amp? Do I need to get into slate subscription to get that champ amp Slate version to the the Rig Player in the TH-U Full? I'm mainly after the Rig Player profile. And are there any thing more worth mention I would get that are not in the TH-U Full.

How many Rig Profile are out for the Slate version that you might not find in the TH-U Full?

yes thats what we all hope for
because 1000s of captured and purchased IRs I know and love lie dormant until Slate/Overloud/Choptones start releasing direct profiles (which they're able to do btw)
