Same here. But I often find myself taking an IR that is far too dark/muddy and finding use for it with a massive boost in the highs.Yeah, right, I never care for the outer ends of the IR, might it have massive lows or sharp highs, no matter, I don't care because I eq that away. What I'm after when searching through IR libraries is the voice in the mids and if it reminds me of a real cab. It's hard to ignore peaking highs though.
What makes an IR useful for me is it's individual high resolution response, sometimes hidden by a terrible overall amplitude response. The EQ controls are there for a reason. Without a doubt, IRs and EQ suck up more hours of my life then I care to even think about.
