In the 1980's I had been one owner of the original "Rockman" headphone amp, but - to be honest - it did not really convince me sonically very much. Much less in direct comparison to my Vox and Marshall amps at this time.

I never owned the Sustainor, but still remember the very positive reviews, it got at this time. So I tested the Overloud version and was very positively surprised. Due to the much better, more flexible options this unit really gives you very nice, good sounding tones, which sound much more convincing to me than the ones, which I got out of my "Rockman". My favorite sound is Edge in combination with Auto Clean and only little compression.

Adjustable Treble Trim, Phase Notch and Treble Boost allow very good fine-tuning. (If you manage to find the original manual somewhere in the internet, to know, what all the different switches and controls really are good for. Unfortunately the plugin does not seem to have a manual included, which would be very helpful, as not all switches and controls are really self explanatory in this case. I would have given 5 stars for the quality of the plugin, but I reduce one because of the missing manual and description of all the functions. Also the Push-Pull-button/switch visualization is made bad in my opinion, at first you do not really know or see, if you have activated or deactivated a function.).

The Chorus/Delay section also sounds nice, especially the Chorus, while the 200ms maximum time of the delay are a little too short for my taste, but it also has a very special tone and works good. But I anyway prefer using the Sustainor alone.

The original gear - if it is available somewhere - is not really cheap, and at least some decades old, so also not always in the best condition, therefore - in comparison - this plugin is a much cheaper and always flawlessly working option, to get exactly these tones and a lot more than only 80's tones as well.

A really well made simulation of some nice, good sounding non-tube units.
