Overloud TH-U or Overloud VKFX for vintage keyboards?

For vintage keyboard sounds, I started with a quest of a nice Boss CE-1 plugin, and am now looking for a MXR Phase 90 plugin replika and probably soon for a cry baby wah-wah. I planned to test these effects in the Overloud TH-U Full guitar bundle. However, there is also an Overloud VKFX for keyboards.

Are the Overloud “Vintage Keyboard FX” identical to the effects in the TH-U Full bundle ? Any user feedback for me?

So I will answer my question.

TH-U and VKFX are two different Overloud products. Thus the VKFX are not part of TH-U Full. e.g the chorus in VKFX is inspired by the BOSS CE-1 while in TH-U it is a CE-2 and CE-5 simulation.

Among the effects simulation in VKFX the following effects are to be found:

  • Boss CE-1 (chorus)
  • MXR Phase 90 (phaser)
  • Roland Space Echo (delay)
  • Mu-tron III (wah-wah)

Interesting combination of FX for keyboards - had not heard about VKFX before.

Has anyone used it? Is it a recommendation for keyboards? Any other alternatives for a FX keyboard starter set ? eg Yamaha Steinberg Vintage collection … or … ?

You could take a look at Byome from Plugin Alliance
Or Soundtoys Collection.

It is supposed to be a “standard” vintage effects bundle for vintage keyboards (Wurlitzer, Rhodes, Clavinet…).

Combinations of these effects with some vintage keyboards are well known: e.g. Wurli and Boss CE-1 (Supertramp), Rhodes and MXR Phase 90 (Billy Joel and also Steely Dan I think), Clavinet and Mutron III (Stevie Wonder) and probably many others.

I heard very good think about Overloud TH-U from @dhj and @djogon, but I don’t know if it also valid for VKFX. The good thing is that Overloud has trial versions for both.
