  1. Those are great tips. Thank you! I will try those out.
  2. Thanks for the response. That's what I was fearing. I guess it was just wishful thinking that someone had a viable secret formula to getting acoustic tones from an electric setup. Thanks!
  3. Good morning all. I wanted to get some feedback on getting a decent acoustic guitar sound from my setup. I play in a cover band that plays mostly rock but has some songs that would sound best with an acoustic guitar. My setup currently is various electric guitars into my pedalboard (which has an HX Effects) into a Budda Superdrive 18 into a 2x12. I purchased some 3Sigma acoustic guitar IRs to use with the HX Effects. I tried creating an acoustic setting with those, but the sound was way too trebley in a live situation and I haven't taken the time to tinker more with the settings. Here's what I think are my options, and I would like to get your feedback on what will get a good acoustic sound: 1. Keep the same setup and spend more time to get a better acoustic simulation. Does anyone have some suggestions for settings to get a good acoustic sound from an electric guitar. 2. Bring my A/E guitar (PRS Angelus) and plug that into my current setup. That means more gear to bring, and still ultimately plugging an acoustic guitar into an electric amp. 3. Bring my A/E guitar and plug directly into the mixer. This eliminates any effects I can use, so I think this is out of the question. 4. Buy an acoustic amp and an AB pedal to add to my board. More gear to buy, carry and try to fit onto a small stage. Thanks for the help!
  4. I believe theoretically your idea would work, but it does come with the caveat that you would need to rewire everything if you decide to use two amps in the future. I would setup the HX FX using the 4-cable method they show in the manual. With the ES-8 (and using the volume loop for 4CM) it would look like this: ES-8 Loop 6 Send --> HX FX Input L ES-8 Loop 6 Ret --> HX FX Loop 1 Send ES-8 Loop 7 Send --> HX FX Loop 1 Return ES-8 Loop 7 Ret --> HX FX Output L I'm using the ES-8 as well and put the HX FX "front effects" in Loop 1 of the ES-8, and "wet" effects in Loop 8. This makes it so I'm really only moving the effects loop on the HX FX.
