I've been spending the last weeks exploring a LOT of guitar amp modeling platforms. Someone mentioned in one of my threads a while ago that I should check out Thermionik by Kazrog, so I did! I was aware of Kazrog since I bought Recabinet 2 years ago and a year or two ago I had bought K-Clip which is a cool limiter/clipper plugin. Since there was a discount on the Kazrog site I decided to buy the full bundle with all the Kazrog plugins including Thermionik. I didn't know much about that plugin, maybe I had seen it mentioned before once or twice. However, this proved to be the perfect opportunity to check it out. Thermionik is basically a 'simple' amp modeler with a very -to the point- interface. The interface isn't made to look fancy, that may through some people off at first but the sound is totally worth it. Each amp has it's own plugin so if you want to switch amps you have to load another instance. Also, there is no built-in cab in the actual amps so you have to use an IR loader after Thermionik. Luckily Kazrog has also release Recabinet 5 which is a cab loader with some cool functions. Browsing IR's in Recabinet is easy and there are some handy EQ and Filter options etc. in the interface. I also really like the speaker dynamics control. In total there are about 25 amps available, to be purchased seperately or bundled. One cool thing about the amp choices is that there are some more 'rare' amps and some highly sought after models too. Amps that stood out for me in that regard were the FB100 (Friedman BE100), Fueled Blue or Silver (Diezel VH4), M2CP or M4 (Mesa MKIIC+ and MKIV) and the Serpent (Framus Cobra). Some of those amps are very rare in amp modelers and some of them aren't often done well. One more feature that I really really appreciate about Thermionik is that all the amps have all the channels modeled. The different channels can be accessed via a drop down menu in the bottom of the plugins. Another thing that I really like is the switching options the amps have to offer, like bright and fat switches. Now about the sound: Of course I made another video demonstrating this platform in 9 different styles. In the top of the screen you can see which amp models were used for each part: I personally think Thermionik sounds very good! It's hard to imagine how one person made these amps soo good and made so many of them. The eq and drive character is very pleasant and balanced overall and the amps are easy to get right by using the available controls. I do think Thermionik sounds very realistic if you compare it to real amps. I often record guitar parts via my Axe FX but I imagine I'll avoid re-amping via my Fractal more often now, and just use Thermionik because it's just THAT good! There aren't any effects really aside from the drive stompboxes which are available too. So if you want an all in one solution with a bunch of effects and routing options maybe Thermionik isn't for you. But if you're looking for great raw guitar tones to easily shape to your liking, definitely check out Thermionik I would LOVE to know what you guys thought of the tones in the video and for those who have tried Thermionik, which amps do you like and how do you like to use it? Thermionik deserves to be talked about, especially here! Stay tuned for more platform demonstrations very soon!
