    The Audiobus forum is the place to ask. I would check there before investing.

    I have Bias FX on my Mac and never use it. I don’t plan to migrate it when I get a new iMac later this year.

    The amp models in Overloud Th-U sound better on average to me than the other apps I’ve tried, which includes GE Labs, GarageBand, Bias, AmpKit, AmpliTube, Nembrini and Yanoc ToneStack. That said, some of these apps are still good and have arguably better effects modeling. I’ve read complaints about the Th-U graphical interface, but it’s pretty precise once you get used to how it operates.

    I also, and the Marshall. But that is only when I practice connected to the iPad or phone. If I’m home I just run through the Helix.

    i can only count in one hand the times I really have to bring out my rig and plug through an amp for practice sessions.

    iRig to Garageband is my go-to. Although that might change as I’m planning to buy a CabM+ and play through that, or even the Suhr Reactive Load IR and use the tube amp, and listen through headphones.

    also, the iRig and Garageband are my staple for quick and dirty recordings and song ideas to pass onto my band mates. Haha

    Mine is more situational. When there is no one in the house but me, I will plug into my Mesa Cali Tweed. Even of fairly loud settings it is not THAT loud (or my hearing is shot, or both). Neighbors have yet to complain. When my wife and daughter are in the house, then iRig it the go to.

    On my last assignment away from home, I had an amp set up in my “work room”, and would turn it on. I tried to be careful about times and volumes. One day an apartment neighbor says “is that you playing sometimes?” I started to apologize and said I would keep it down in the future. She said to the effect “no, I rather enjoy it.” I knew she talked to most of my neighbors, and asked if anyone else had mentioned the playing. She told me that none had mentioned it negatively. So, I was somewhat emboldened by that.
