Is there still a way to make IRs compatible with Axe-Fx Ultra?

    Hey Guys,

    I know this is a long shot for a pretty old unit, but is it possible to still convert IRs like ownhammer or redwirwez into a format usable by the Axe Ultra? I'm using an ultra as a backup rig and would love to use some more modern IRs with my presets.

    The only cabs I have been able to get to work through axe edit are the only three available on axeexchange. All other links I find these days are dead or the files are corrupted. Anyways, any insight into this would be greatly appreciated. Also if anybody has a big dump of old ultra IRs that still work that would be a killer bonus.

    After researching more it looks like all the tools used to convert .wav files into .syx readable by axe ultra like axeomatic, aomdsp and jojosyx are not even around anymore.

    If I pay for cablab3 is that going to give me an output option for axe 1 format or just axe 2 and above?

    If you export as Standard Resolution and not UltraRes, they should work.

    I converted a free IR from the old Redwirez sampler pack I had using the latest Cab-Lab. If this works for your unit, you can be confident Cab-Lab 3 conversion works for it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vr62n716phuuatf/5150-Sheffield1200s-SM57-Cap-0_5in.syx?dl=0

    Try that out.

    Thanks for the reply, it looks like that format is incorrect for the ultra. It didn't give me an error but the file won't load and just has a red icon next to the empty slot in axemanage. The same thing happened with a ton of other archived IRs i have tried.The only three that have worked so far were ones I download from axeechange.

    I am going to get a friend of mine to download and attempt to run the old axeomatic utility on his windows 7 machine and see if I can convert the IRs that way. That may be the only option if it even still works.

    All of the Redwirez IR's I have bought come with Ultra compatible files. They have an Ultra folder that contains all the files for the cab of choice. They are pretty inexpensive if you know what cab you want.

    I found this today, it might be relevant to your needs. I'm not at home right now to test this works though. You want axe fx ir convertor installer
    2.0. Jar
