  1. Can you make a recording of your guitar with another audio interface and compare the sound/images?
  2. Meters won't hurt the pros nor the amateurs. No shame in using all the senses to get the best result faster.
  3. The new RedWirez MixIR3 has something called Giganator that simulates or compensates the sound of playing loud: https://redwirez.com/products/mixir3-ir-loader
  4. Redwirez has gotten an update recently: https://redwirez.com/products/mixir3-ir-loader
  5. IR-s Used in Presets. Would be a great help to have a quick overview of which IR-s are used in presets and which aren't. Something simple like an asterisk before name or a different colour. Right now it's difficult to know which IR-s you can safely replace without breaking the existing presets.
  6. Found out the reason the envelope still engaged with sensitivity at 0 - I'm using the filter after the amp and thus the level is higher. Solution would be to lower the amp output or settle using the filter before the amp. So, still one good manual or should I say pedal filter would be welcome.
  7. This might be it. Only way to know for sure, is to update.
  8. I usually use IR on a parallel path if I want to combine it with another sound. I do the mixing/switching between them using the controls in the split module.
  9. Anybody know if the snapshot bybass bug has been fixed - after dragging a block to a different slot and back some blocks don't have the right bypass state for snapshots?
  10. Tried the autofilter now and even with the sensitivity =0 the envelope still opens the filter automatically. One filter that could be used was in the legacy section - Q filter, I think. So hoping there will be some more filters in the future.
  11. Thanks ttkfirst! I was just going to start complaining about the lack of good filter solutions :) Checking it out...
  12. Thanks, I'll look at these as well.
  13. I haven't yet bought any IR-s, but I've found some free ones. Some IR-s of vintage mics (this is essentially what I was looking for): https://micirp.blogspot.com/p/about-micirp.html And some of acoustic instruments: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/music-computers/1125801-impulse-responses-acoustic-guitar-body.html I made a couple of sound tests blending the regular guitar cabs and one of these. The results are not perfect, but in that directon. I needed to add the IR-s in a DAW instead of Helix, because the mic ones phase needed to be adjusted. The mic and and acoustic blends with guitar cabs. 2 clips of each, playing the same sound softly and harder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1q0adb2unqpy7bf/AAB5qMcJD27yhOEQRZo10cs3a?dl=0
  14. Do you mean the IR-s of the acoustic guitar body itself? I've seen those, need to test them as well. I'm looking for the extended freq response at both ends, because the Stick goes to low C - 1/2 step above 5 string bass. And so some bass amps have been quite good - Cougar, Cali Bass, Woody Blue. But also some guitar amps - Archetype Clean, Brit J45 Brt. I'm tweaking a tone that gives me cleaner sound while playing softly and breaks up when played louder. I need the bass without farting and the extra bite at the top, so it doesn't sound muffled. Blending two paths together has been the way so far. So I'm experimenting various ways of getting the path without a cab to sound a bit nicer - EQ hi cut and now the more exotic IR-s. It would also be useful to be able by using snapshots to go to a more distorted rhythm and solo sound. That might work by blending less of the bright cab or cabless path, when using more distortion, so the sound doesn't get harsh. While the Bass amps do the break-up quite nicely, the higher distortion isn't as good
  15. Yeah, that's an option too. I'm having a moderate success with one path using an IR and a parallel path with hi-cut EQ at 8kHz.
