    Full Res IR question

    Does putting the IR player at the end with the full res IR’s function the same as adding the full res IR’s in the cab block? It’s being placed after all the effects and after the entire chain. How can that be the same?

    Full Res IR question

    Are the full res IR’s meant to be used when going to FOH? I know it helps attain the amp in the room sound and is more pleasant to the ears when using headphones. But is this something that is beneficial for the presets we are using live?
