IR Sample rates

Hi

Is there a standard format for Axe IR sample rates. Downloaded a few packs and have then in 44, 48hz, 200ms & 500ms etc ?

I get the higher the sample rate etc the larger the file and presumably the more detailed the IR is but whether this is something anyone can really hear is questionable.

Thanks

Lee

from the ownhammer website...

The files contained in the "Fractal.zip" are a copy/paste of the 48 kHz, 200 ms, non-minimum phase transformed files from the Wav directory. These files work best with Fractal's Cab Lab software, as it allows you to choose whether you leave the files in their raw time of flight - to which is unified and identical for all currently sold OwnHammer libraries containing raw, non-minimum phase transformed files - or use the proprietary minimum phase transformation function in that software when mixing and/or converting files. OwnHammer does not recommend ever using the "Auto Trim" option with OwnHammer IR's.

As of version 3.12.0 of Axe-Edit and 1.7.0 of AX8-Edit, free Fractal editor companion software now allows for the import of .wav files, with all necessary conversion to proprietary formats being done behind the scenes and transparent to the user. As such, it may be of interest to those without Cab Lab who want to mix the files with stock cabs via parallel cab blocks to have minimum phase transformed .wav files to import so that there are no phase issues that need to be corrected. If this is the case, simply also download the Atomic.zip, Line6.zip, or Two-Notes.zip, as these contain 48 kHz, 200 ms, minimum phase transformed files copied and pasted from the Wav directory.

500ms is for computer-based convolution hosts (for example: software
amp plugins and/or convolution reverb plugins. Computer-based
solutions usually are able to read the .wav-format directly without
problems.
170ms for hardware-amp modeling devices, that support the import of
user-IR’s. Usually IRs have to be converted into a specific proprietary
format suitable for the used hardware modeling device. In most cases
the producers of the modeling devices usually provide the proper
conversion tools. Stated below you can choose the suitable kHz/bitformat
for your hardware, respectively follow the instructions from the
enclosed manual of the device manufacturer.
Some examples:
- Fractal Audio Systems™ Axe-Fx: 48kHz/24bit
- Line6™ Helix: 48kHz/16bit
- Yamaha™ THR Series: 44.1kHz/16bit
- Kemper™ Profiler: 44.1kHz/24bit
- Two-Notes™ Torpedo: 96kHz/24bit"

Stay Metal!
