Sound like Humanity’s Last Breath and Vildhjarta with this brutal THALL preset for the Neural DSP Quad Cortex.
Part of what makes the thall sound so distinctive is the brutal chunky chords, the low drop tunings and a djent-like quality of the sound that leverages pitch shifting to change the tuning of the strings. This preset uses heavy EQ techniques to enhance specific frequencies for a quality thall sound. The DI (guitar input) and post-amp sound have been EQ’d; you might have to tweak them to suit your guitar/pickups.
This preset does not use any captures or anything that is not standard on the Quad Cortex. All devices are NDSP standard devices tweaked to the Thall sound.
Depending on your guitar and pickups, this preset will require tweaking, so don’t expect a plug-and-play preset. The basics of the EQ and overall sound are there.
Use this plugin in scene mode to experience the pitching shifting modes.
- Scene A overdriven with no pitch-shifting
- Scene B overdriven pitches down 6 octaves
- Scene C jangly clean tone
Using scenes allows you to pitch shift if you don’t own an expression pedal.
Disclaimer: Like most presets, don’t expect a plug-and-play experience. Depending on your guitar, pickups, strings and playing, this preset might sound different after purchase. Where possible, we will assist all customers with tweaking their presets to get their desired tone. All the demos you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed or double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars, for clone presets especially, what you hear in the song results from layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound. The guitars themselves in the mix sound different.
Hi-gain tone (recorded on a Mark Holcbome PRS SVN 7 string with stock alpha/omega pickups)
The chunky saturated distortion you know and love. It sounds messy in isolation, but in a mix it’s perfect.
Hi-gain tone (in a mix)
The hi-gain guitar with bass and drums. Just a single tracked guitar, so I bumped up the volume so you can hear with everything else.
The THALL clean sound is characterised by its heavy use of delay and reverb to give that spacey/jangly sound you often hear in many Vildhjarta songs. Depending on your needs, you’ll want to adjust the delay.
Important: After placing your order, please allow up to 24 hours for your presets to be available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you must befriend our profile and presets will be shared with you.
