    FW18 Dirty Shirley + Cab pack 8 noodling

    Just a bit of sloppy noodling on Preset 60, but with the Cab Pack 8 TV SM57-R121 B01 IR. All changes in gain or tone are just volume knob or pickup selector on one of my Tom Anderson Angels (this has a Koa top, basswood body, maple neck). Tried to keep it short and sweet. Really impressed...

    So, for the first time since Firmware 8, I decided to see if I could match my (well, now my Dad's) Mark V. I decided to try the IIC+ mode as it's definitely a more usable sound for my purposes, and after setting up a sound I really enjoyed with the Amp (Slave out, into axe FX, for IR...

    Hey everyone, I'm back with another IR pack!!! I decided to capture impulse responses of one of my Dad's 4x12 Marshall JCM800 Cabs. He has two, a slant and a straight. As I like the sound of the slant more, I decided to capture this first. All IRs were captured with a Shure SM57...

    Probably a bad sign..

    As an american that when I see IRS I just think about impulse responses. This could present a problem in the future. Fractal, what have you done to me :'(

    Global 'Low Freq Response'

    It would be nice to have a global Low Freq Response parameter, so that for those of us who use poweramp+cab, we dont have to go to the speaker tab and change it to our desired number every time we want to switch to an amp or other user preset.

    Finding a cabs 'Low Freq' response by ear?

    I saw several days ago Cliff mentioned you could find your cabs "Low Freq Resonance" by ear, because the cab would 'sympathize'. And by this I'm referring to the "Low Freq" parameter in the amp block (speaker tab). Was wondering if anyone has done this and could confirm of a good way to tell...

    V10 Motor Drive question - on vs off.

    Because v10 gives the cab 'weight' and also provides for a more accurate simulation of the interaction between amp/cab, is motor drive still something that you would generally want on to simulate a driven cab? Obviously it all comes to taste, but for the sake of accuracy to the 'real thing'...
