    Please view this video and let me know your thoughts. Should I be adjusting the FX loop volume, the cab block volume or output 1 volume? Thanks!

    IRs boost the signal 3 dB, 6 dB, 9 dB and some 12 dB ... what do you do to level IRs?

    ... if anything at all? If you disable a cab block so the signal goes through, IRs typically boost the signal 3dB, 6dB, 9dB and some 12 dB. Some IRs sound strained until they are leveled. I have output one 1/4 inch out going into a mixer, as well as output two. I then use the -20dB lights to...

    The Tomato Farm Studio Ampeg SVT 410 Bass IRs ... best $100 I've spent on IRs

    I recently endeavored to enlist Greg Tomao from The Tomato Farm Studio to make a custom IR pack using an Ampeg SVT-VR power amp through an Ampeg SVT 410. I requested the SM57 and MD421 mics and Greg was kind enough to throw in the Mondo for my patience. The link below is to a zip file...

    Crappy Stock Radial Capacitors

    So I am preparing to change out the pickups and do a wiring mod on my stock Les Paul Custom and during my recon, I noticed Gibson uses radial capacitors; you know the ones, flat and disc shaped, and dirt cheap. I removed and replaced these with some film capacitors of the same capacitance I had...

    Bergantino HD112 UltraRes IRs captured with a Blue Yeti Pro (Cardioid)

    Here are some IRs I captured today with a Blue Yeti Pro microphone through a Mackie Onyx 1220i mixer. The cab was powered by a Matrix GT1500FX. These are all ConeEdge with the Horn at various levels. These should be more readily useful and I will do the same for the GK NEO 112 when I get time...

    Here are some IRs I captured today with a Blue Yeti Pro microphone through a Mackie Onyx 1220i mixer. The cab was powered by a Matrix GT1500FX. I captured the cap, capedge, horn and port. These should be good for mixing once CabLab is up a running but the cap and capedge are useful now...

    Renaming Internal Ultrares IRs Names - How best to do this?

    Just wondering what people are doing to change their internal Ultrares IR names? I've got IRs from a GK Neo 112 and a Bergantino HD 112 I'm trying to upload but they all have the same internal name. I always wished there was an option to just use the file name. Thanks!

    Steven Slate Drums 4 (SSD4) on XP with Ableton Live 9 ... any issues?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any recent experience with these two pieces of software? And was aware of any RAM issues? SSD4 says it require Windows 7 but I've heard back from their support and they just do not support it under XP anymore, so it may work but be hounded by RAM issues...
