These are great. They have taken over all my cab sounds. Thanks!
By default, if you never changed the settings, MPT.Speaking of conversion, etc: If I drop a wav on the AE cab manage tool to load it, is it MPT or raw?
In some circumstances it could be better to select auto-trim, I've noticed some IR producers leave quite a bit of silence at the beginning of the files, this would introduce a tiny bit of latency and the resolution of the IR would be lower cuz it will be cut (windowed) earlier.By default, if you never changed the settings, MPT.
In AE-III go to: Settings -> Preferences... -> Cabinet Import -> IR Processing and set it to "None" if you want Raw syx conversion (there's also an option in Axe-Manage Cabs tool under the browse menu toward the bottom somewhere (not in front of axe, can't remember exact menu option for certain), but the Settings -> Preferences is the master control for that option as well.)
In Cab-Lab 3: Settings -> Default Processing Mode -> None
Conversely, some IR creators specifically suggest against using auto-trim, such as OwnHammer. I'd imagine it's pretty case-by-case depending on the producer.In some circumstances it could be better to select auto-trim, I've noticed some IR producers leave quite a bit of silence at the beginning of the files, this would introduce a tiny bit of latency and the resolution of the IR would be lower cuz it will be cut (windowed) earlier.
Definitely. Using auto trim doesn't guarantee that IRs will be aligned when mixed, while without processing they usually are if they come from the same producer.Conversely, some IR creators specifically suggest against using auto-trim, such as OwnHammer.

^^^^ I think this is an excellent idea. +1Anyway a while ago I actually thought of a possible useful feature.
Would it be possible to have a switch that applies minimum phase directly within the cab block instead of being forced to import them raw and processed? Like it currently is on cab-lab.
I totally agree with this one.Cliff just posted a subset of the factory IRs with no minimum phase transformation applied. They sound subtly different.
The second paragraph is about mixing these no minimum phase transform IRS. If you are just using 1 IR, yeah it doesn't apply.
Then why does ~140 millimetres always give a sweet spot when using even a single IR? It's super subtle, almost imperceptible, but spending 20 minutes scrolling from 0 to 340, 140mm going back to 0 takes the magic away, it's hard to really even hear it do anything different, maybe it's just notching my favorite 500hz mid band. I guess it's got a fixed mix ratio with the dry signal maybe cause I can definitely tell a difference when using a single IR, it's subtle but I guess fractions of a millimetre would be...That's just delay.
so you don't have to mess with mic distance, just add some together and they are already more or less lined up rightWhy were all the IRs transformed from raw IR responses to MPT types originally?
Was this soley for the purpose of making it easier to mix multiple IRs?
Shouldn't make much of a difference, axe-edit and cab-lab automatically convert/trim the IRs when importing them into the axe.Okay now for the next big debate, what’s everyone’s feelings on which wav file resolution to pick when converting; 96/24/500 or just start right off with 48/24/200?
