    I am going to try the Overloud TH-U demos and see if I like that at all. If I do I will compare it to the NTS and see logically both for my budget and what is stuff I need vs. want.

    I honestly wish I could just buy a kemper and call it a day. I still am gonna have to wait awhile to purchase my kemper since it is something on my list of stuff to buy for quite awhile now.

    Interesting to see what you guys are recommending but ive tried them all literally & the 3 from Neural is the best your going to get! Honestly in my opinion they are only second to Kemper! But without good impulses any amp sim will all sound like dogshit!

    Hence why I am trying to keep budget down. I am wanting a kemper so bad. I also wanna get a Mesa 2x12 with it and I cannot wait to get that and a 7 string tuned down to G# standard and play some new Cannibal Corpse shit. I can already imagine what it would sound like cranked and me doing a slow divebomb on the G# string. Would sound like a big ass fuckin bulldozer cruisin thru

    I tune to G# standard using the Fortin Nameless & its the best tone ive ever had dude, that thing welcomes low tuning! Definitely worth the $100 bucks!

    TH-U is my favorite sim suite right now, the TSE X50 being a close 2nd. Here's a clip i finished up a little bit ago to give you an idea of how it can sound.

    The only EQ going on is a HPF @ 6600 to tame the fizz and a multiband compressor for the low end on the rhythm tracks.

    do you use a floyd at all? I wonder if that big of a gauge string would have complications with the saddles.

    I love the LePou LE456 Engl sim. The Lecto is great as well. Both of them are free. You could also get helix native and keep making new accounts every 15 days lol

    Yeah. I am gonna still go the 7 route, but if it isn't greener on the other side then I will go for the abbath V and downtune it.

    If I had to choose one I would definitely go for Helix Native.
    It just sounds great, there are a lot of amps and effect to choose from and I love working with the automation.
    It's also a platform that will keep getting updates for a good amount of time, at least that's the impression that Line 6 is giving.

    There are some other good options out there like TH-U or X50 but don't choose the latter if you want a lot of options.
    TH-U has a lot of amps and effects to choose from so I believe it would be my second choice.

    I did a bunch of comparisons and I recently compared my 6505 to 11 modelers, most of them plug-ins.
    Maybe it could be of help:

    Good idea, anyway! The TH-U demo blew my mind, anyway, very very very good amp sim, allinone. But now, for my genre, I always use the NTS suite.

    Did you feel that the TH-U was not that good for metal? Only reason I am considering it much more over the NTS is because of the versatility of it.
