Thanks Spencer !
Same here. The near perfection of the Mesa and Marshall varieties is jaw dropping. Thibault gets something good out of nearly every amp--so I'm torn between 243 lovers, so to speak. At first I had trouble with the clean patches. For my playing I have to switch off the compressor and up the level on most of his clean patches.Seriously Fremen, this pack combined with Q2 is outstanding, I've not messed with any user/commercial cabs as yet but you don't really need them, there are so many usable tones right off the bat using the stock cabs. I find a preset I like and end up jamming for half an hour and then switch to the next one and repeat. I've not played this much in ages!!!
No, sorry. I thought I'd have that deleted in time. I'm just an idiot and didn't realize that some of the presets were still using cabs from the 'free irs' that are available. My mistake! I'm blaming it on heavy drinking...Is there a stereo cab block with a missing speaker?
I think the most important thing to me is to not think of IRs as better or worse, but what you like the most. Almost all the IRs being talked about around these forums are high quality and great sounding. You get hundreds or thousands in a some collections and one isn't better than the other, only a different sound than another. You find the one you like the most and there you are. I think there are some that may compliment one setup more than the other, but "best" and "worst" is subjective. What the IR packs offer is a fantastic capability for folks to chase tones that might be in their head or tones they are trying to reproduce.LOL! Im pretty much overwhelmed with all the choices and a profound lack of knowledge regarding which would be the best for me
I think the original ASEM recto was uploaded on the Andy Sneap forum. I did many mixes with it ; in the ones I used until recently, I added a Redwirez M160 and an old Ownhammer R121 (from the high gain starting pack, not sold anymore) to "unscoop" it, adding some mids. As I wanted to share my "Lead" and "Rhythm" mixes in the free IRs folder, I searched for free IRs to add to ASEM. The later is still the basis of these IR mixes, the other IRs I used are mixed at -12 to -16 I think, and I added some EQ too. So these two IRs are hybrids but as they work, it doesn't bother meThe Satriani tone sounds great. Look forward to the Floyd stuff.
One question - is there a source for the free ASEM IR you're using? I've been a few around but not sure of the one you're using. Thanks again...
No, they were exclusive with the albumDoes this pack include the tone match collection you were selling with your album?
They works with both, however there's an offset with the user cabs for XL users (I have a MK I), they need to put my cabs in different places. There's a PDF guide for thatI probably missed it somewhere, but are these for the Axe Fx-II or the XL?
