    Gallien Krueger 250RL/ML Tone match Patch

    When I got my Toaster in Feb 2012, the first amp I profiled was my GK250 ML. The magic of that amp is the chorus and reverb together which is really hard to nail, similar to a Maestro PSa-1 phase shifter (a la Steve Howe (Starship Trooper) and Lifeson/2112). Anyhoo, great great awesome patch.

    Why was 48kHz chosen as standard for most Modelers/IR loaders?

    Why was 48kHz chosen as standard for most Modelers/IR loaders?

    I agree - would have preferred 44/88 over 48/96 due to prior demos, but not a big deal moving to 48 since most DAW can convert easily. I just have to remember to switch sample rates when starting a new song.
