YES. Any time someone says "...this is really just something that you'd notice / use in the studio...", I immediately start to look for a way to use onstage. I trust the FOH engineer to do what they need to do in order to balance a great mix; ultimately, that's out of my control anyway But onstage - especially for my IEM mix - I want the aural paradise of fully realized guitar tone. My wife sometimes told me I look blissed out during certain songs. I give her my IEMs during a soundcheck, and her reaction was "oh man I just took the blue pill".
That's a good question. I assume we could still use any existing IR's with the old format. WIll be interesting to see if anyone makes acoustic IR's in the new "FullRes" format and if that improves the acoustic character of those IR'sI wonder - what impact would this have on Acoustic IRs? Any ?
I'm also thinking this would be cool for having a less direct sound for in ear monitoring
It might be significant that it’s an Axe-FX III announcement and also says…Any insight into how much CPU usage we're looking at compared to a conventional or UltraRes IR?
The FX3 has lots of cab space, so I think it’s aimed at that device and maybe the FM9. If it’s implemented on the FM3 I’d expect the slot count will be reduced in the FullRes User IR area. It’s always interesting to see what the final release will be.The new FullRes User IR bank supports up to 64 FullRes IRs.
If the demand is great enough one possibility is to reduce the number of slots in the User IR banks and allocate the freed memory to FullRes slots.
