Super, thanks well explained in the manual, I just panicked since it was working different than before and the three other knobs did what I expcted so I assumed my AXE was broken or some seting caused itRead the manual, it explains how the individual levels work in the Cab block.
About 5.3 ms. The length doesn't determine the amount of bass. It determines the resolution. If there is a sharp resonance in the bass response a short IR will smear that resonance causing it to be wider than it actually is.
Cool, I’ll check in the morning - thanks!update to todays axeedit
Ah, I didn’t even think to look on the unit itself - I was only looking in Axe-Edit.If you're in the Axe's UI on the first CAB page you have to scroll down (IIRC).
Didn't mean to plug but there are some really good ones in the Fractal Audio store that may be worth checking out: https://shop.fractalaudio.com/cab-packs/Gee, I wonder where one might be able to purchase these "just right" IRs?
This is 100% true, however, I suppose in the IR world when you do not have access to the source & you’ve exhausted all available resources, (ie, run out of IR’s to choose from) this is a welcomed tool to have. Although I haven’t tried it so I can’t say how effective it is, and I will say for me personally I think I’ll have a hard time convincing myself to like it based on the fact that it’s removing information which equates to less resolution in my mind, but ya never know..Didn't mean to plug but there are some really good ones in the Fractal Audio store that may be worth checking out: https://shop.fractalaudio.com/cab-packs/
I think UltraRes is one of the coolest things that sets Fractal apart from everything else that's out there. I recently posted a video about how much information you'll have in a near-field IR and there's a lot going on all the way up to 170ms. If there are problems within that range then I would rather fix it at the source than by decreasing the IR length but that's just me. Same thing with a harsh top end - you can fix it at the source rather than using post-EQ. It's pretty simple logic.
Teamwork makes the dream work. I’m very thankful that Cliff was receptive to the idea.Awesome. This new tool is going to solve a lot of "last-mile" preset tuning problems in trying to balance IRs to get the desired final effect. Thank you so much Cliff (and to Justin York for suggesting the idea). Onward!
For live sounds you may want to high cut, but I find that cutting a little 2k-4k 1-2dB gets rid of the fatiguing frequencies when cranked. Cutting a little top will slightly tame your tone, while cutting too much will take away note separation and you’ll lose yourself in the mix.
Where do you do the cuts 2k-4k 1-2dB Justin. Before or aftzer the cab block?
There were no changes to the modeling. If you are using Global Cab Blocks you will need to adjust the Low/High cuts.
