This is exactly what I hoped it accomplished. IMO, the vast majority of IRs are rendered useless by excessive "character". And there's still plenty of resolution in the low-end. De-Phase is the difference that will have me purchasing more IRs in the future.Okay here's my analysis and opinion on the de-phase parameter:
As the image suggests the green line is an alloy IR without de-phase. The red line is the same IR with de-phase at 5. The blue line is the same IR with de-phase on 10.
So essentially it evens out your IR. If you have a bad IR you can make it more usable by using de-phase. On the other hand if you have a good IR then I personally wouldn't advice you to use de-phase as it also removes the character of your IR. So at 10 it's almost like a Palmer PDI.
From an IR procuder point of view you will not see me using this feature. Don't get me wrong. It's a really useful tool and it can make many IRs sound better. The reason I wouldn't use it is that I spend a lot of time making sure that I have the best resolution for my IRs. When we start talking about evening out the IR graphs then it's similar to lowering the resolution of the IR.
I think this is a great future and many people will find it useful. I would assume in a live situation it's a miracle worker especially with FRFR setups. It "should" result in less ear fatigue.
Awesome. Just gotta remember to find a cab and leave it. I love the process so much that I just cannot help wanting to scroll thru cabs ;-) Enjoy your vacation!I'm leaving for vacation. When I get back I'll look into the crashing thing some more and work on optimizing the process. I'm sure with a little work we can get the lag down to almost nothing.
It works and can access the new amps after you update blocks, but you can't access the new parameters there yet. I just select the block with the new parameter, pause axe edit, and then adjust the parameter on the front panel.I take it this is not AXE-Edit compatible yet?
if it's aligning phase, you may just prefer the original signal. it probably depends on the IR itself as well as your preferences in general. for me, around 5 was a great improvement for the IRs i tried.I tried the dephase parameter and except for the extreme settings (>7.5 - 10) I didn't notice an improvement.
Also, from the description, it seems to be more of "feel" thing, so it may not translate listening back.if it's aligning phase, you may just prefer the original signal. it probably depends on the IR itself as well as your preferences in general. for me, around 5 was a great improvement for the IRs i tried.
this is kinda like saying having your bass set to 10 is always better. it just isn't universal.
