    Are FullRes IRs just for AITR sounds?

    I'm using close mic mixes only. 500ms seems to me like it has less fizz. I like them more.
  2. ertan


    One more thing, As far as I saw, drag&drop is a little problematic with automation, since the two windows may overlap (Explorer window where the IR containing directory is open, and Axe Edit). A little feature would be such great for automations like this. @FractalAudio, is it possible, and...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 17.00

    How many FullRes IRs can be stored in the scrathpads? 2 or 16? I'll create an RPA script that will load my favorite IRs to these slots.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 17.00

    Compared the UltraRes/FullRes of the same close mic mix (York Audio Mesa OS 4x12): I'll upload and use them to the Scratchpad everytime I start the machine, and will not complain about it! Sound is a little fuller, it's like there is less fizz, and more importantly, I feel like I'm feeling more...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 17.00

    Thank you! I tried the same York Audio's Mesa OS mix on User 1 and Scratchpad slot, and there is definitely a difference. I hear broader and fuller low end. I don't think that I'll go back to UltraRes. It's bad that I have to load the IR everytime I start the unit. If there will be no solution...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 17.00 Public Beta

    Even as a Mark 1 user, this update really excites me. I hope that it will eventually get to a point that we will be able to choose to use the User Bank 2 NV space for 1024 UltraRes or 32 FullRes IR's. Then I'll choose the second option and never look back :)
  12. ertan


    I mainly use and enjoy your 4x12 Mesa OS and 4x10 Ampeg packs' close miced mixes. Do you see any benefit for these mixes with FullRes? What are their average length?
  13. ertan


    While not using the factory presets (except when I use them as a reference while dialing, not to go too astray beacause of ear fatigue), instead of the factory presets and IR's, User Bank 2 is much more spendable IMHO.
  14. ertan


    Only 3 slots are enough for me. Left and right guitars, and one bass 😁
  15. ertan


    Thanks for the info. I'm aware that one FullRes IR corresponds to 64x UltraRes IRs memory space, but maybe for Mark I, a minimal number (e.g. 2 or 4) may be considered. If the number differences create a difficulty for development due to the architecture, please ignore this. I'm happy enough...
  16. ertan


    While not being sure, this will give us the exact environment conditions that the amp-cab is recorded. Otherwise, we cut some original information, and add a different environment effect to the sound with the reverb. I liked the long IR idea better.

    Switched directly from 16.02 to 16.04. This might be the most audible change I experienced with a minor update. With one sentence, I can say that one more, maybe the last blanket is removed. :) Cleans are very nice and high gain amps are roaring more now. I didn't need to reset the amps or...

    Anyone in love with the Archean?

    Definitely one of my favorites for high gain, which are SLO, Archean, JP2C, 5153 and 6160+. I switch between them from time to time.

    Forgot How Loud Tube Amps Are

    I sold my 'Mini' Rectifier after having to isolate the quietest isocab ever, the AxeTrak, even further. Then I switched to Axe2. Nowadays, with Axe3 and Cygnus, I don't even consider switching to amps anymore. GAS is dead, FAS is the future 😅

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 4 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta

    Hi Mikko, Can you describe the sonic difference between this and the Boogie AMP Pack with a few words? I know that they are after different amps, but some information like 'this amp has more bass' etc. would be very helpful for the ones who are planning to buy the pack, including me.

    IR trouble? Forget all the commercial IRs... !!!

    Do you mic your SM57 13cm away from the cab when you are live or recording? Maybe this is the difference. OH far-field IR's don't have that excessive low-high end for example.
