I'll get onto doing this this week assuming (I think) I saved the file. See my post above this one though - it is still my hands on my acoustic with my mic and my mic preamp. Best practices is just doing your own. Trust me on this, it is the truth.Scott, any chance you could upload a high quality version of your Taylor K-16ce recording so those of us with drastically different pickups can try using it as a source? Decent acoustic recordings containing enough frequency content to make useful tone matches seem to be few and far between!
Unfortunately riffs akin to Cliff's Boogie don't seem to get a lot of airtime on good sounding commercial acoustic recordings these days...
Thanks Scott. I did not find any external controllers assigned to any of the effects in the chain. no output sound... what am I missing? it has to be stupid simple.There are some things I do with controllers that are probably still in there; for people having issues with the preset, that might be the issue. Just remove the external controllers.
Perhaps true (I don´t know), but an Variax surely feels quite different to an PRS, Fender, Gibson or any other of your favourite guitars etc...I got to try this. Never tried the acoustic geetar tricks with an eletric.
I thought you could store different guitar types on the pup selector on the Variax.. No?

I'm aware that's the ideal way, but for those of us who don't actually own an acoustic guitar in the first place ( :shock ), matching to other people's acoustic recordings is our only option. I've done a couple of perfectly usable acoustic tone matches in the past, but from slightly less than ideal sources. I imagine a decent recording full of meat and potatoes tone match friendly material will yield better results again.See my post above this one though - it is still my hands on my acoustic with my mic and my mic preamp.

You have to tailor your expectations to the reality presented. The point of the thread is the method, not the preset or the IR.So I upgraded to 12.03 and loaded the preset with the IR. My thoughts-
Perhaps its my guitar, but this patch to me doesn't really have much acoustic/woody quality. It sounds great, don't get me wrong, but with my Suhr S-3, it treads much closer to a very clean/slightly percussive electric tone. Which honestly might not be a bad thing, because too often you get into the fake acoustic sound that sounds poor. But IMO I couldn't pull this out at a gig and anyone think taht I was playing an acoustic. I do have a humbucker in my Suhr strat, but IDK, I almost feel like I did something wrong, because to me it doesn't sound like a tone matched acoustic, hah.
