    New to Fractal - question with regards to IRs

    Welcome to the Fractal family, and thanks for the kind words about my IRs! I’ve got four of the most popular modelers on the market and found Fractal to easily be the most accurate of the bunch. That’s what I use when I make mixes, so it makes sense that you’re getting quick results using these...

    Wish Interchangeable preamp tube “slots”

    I spent the entire day today trying different preamp tubes in different slots on my 5150 and Dual Rec to see what effect it would have on the tone. I had TAD, Gold Lion, and Tung Sol 12AX7 tubes and was shocked by how much swapping a single tube changed the tone and feel of the amp. The most...

    Vendor York Audio Master Thread - Newest Cab Pack: HWAT 412 FN50 Lite

    I really wish I could do that, as that was one of my initial dreams for these packs... But since I’m just a guitar player and not a web guy, I had to pay someone to design my website and set up my store with the assumption that I’d be able to do updates and have the flexibility to be creative...

    Vendor York Audio Master Thread - Newest Cab Pack: HWAT 412 FN50 Lite

    Since it’s a completely new shoot with more mics and more captures and will take a lot of time to create, it’ll be a separate product for $14.99. Since some of the older cabs have a devoted fan base and continue to sell well, I’ll still offer the older versions at a reduced price for those who...

    Wish Mesa Dual Caliber DC-5

    If these schematics meet @FractalAudio standards, I would happily send my amp to Cliff. I’ve got a ‘96 Rev G Dual Rec and an original 5150, and the DC-5 keeps up with them along with having its own mojo. It’s a great amp with a more open sounding overdrive at high gain settings compared to the...

    For the Matchless, I’ll be adding more microphones as well as ambient shots like Room, Rear, and Side. My methodology has changed quite a bit since I shot that cab over a year ago, and while it continues to be a favorite for many players, I know I can squeeze more killer tones out of it. It’s a...

    Thinking of IRs as time capsules

    @MarkStudios I think we're living in a very exciting time. Even though I do this literally every single day, it's still so cool to me that we're able to "capture" a cabinet like a snapshot in history and experience it whenever we want. You're right that speakers degrade over time with heavy...

    Why Fractal is good for my sanity... and my wallet.

    I’ve been an avid Fractal user for about 6 or 7 years. It always sounds good. When I turn it on, I always get consistently great tones and feel inspired to play. Sometimes people write about buying real amps because they love the models so much and now I’m one of those people. I love the PVH...

    Vendor York Audio Master Thread - Newest Cab Pack: HWAT 412 FN50 Lite

    Lately I’ve just been enjoying playing guitar. As for what’s next, I’ve been toying with the idea of either reshooting the Matchless or Mesa OS, or shooting Steve Stevens’ old Marshall 1960BV cab loaded with ‘87 Marshall Vintage speakers pulled from a Silver Jubilee cab. There are other combo...

    @Brian Angiel nailed it. The Mixes are given numbers for two reasons. 1) It lets you choose what sounds best to you by listening rather than having a preconceived notion based on what mics were used. I’ve had a lot of users tell me that they landed on a mix with mics they never thought to use...

    What buffer, bit, latency are you recording/mixing at?

    You’re probably right. I use Pro Tools, so that’s what I’m referencing.

    Very smooth tone! I like the midrange character a lot. Thanks for sharing!

    What buffer, bit, latency are you recording/mixing at?

    If I’m doing a full band session, I set the session at 48k 24 bit. While tracking, use the lowest sample rate you can without digital pops, some computers can handle 64 samples and some can’t go below 128. When you’re mixing, use the highest sample you have, which might be 1024 in your case. If...

    Sure thing, here it is! For the clip, I used the chorus block for the width, but I just played it again and used the Enhancer block which I like more. I still have the Chorus block in there, but it's bypassed, so you can try the Chorus or the Enhancer to see which one you like better. This is...
