  1. EDIT: You will find my "production" script for download and up-to-date instructions on this website: http://acousticir.free.fr/spip.php?article136&var_mode=calcul EDIT: Links fixed! Check out this AGF thread for Doug Young’s demo of my IR along with my too long technical description of how my IR is generated (not required reading!). You will need headphones to hear this level of detail. Doug has previously been published in Acoustic Guitar magazine. https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=568631 Essentially my IR script replaces the Aura library or the Audio Sprockets ToneDexter training process with a custom IR you generate on your own. If you would like to use an HX Stomp, as I do, as your do-it-all acoustic guitar pedal, this script plugs the only missing capability in the HX's repertoire. Doug's evaluation was with a very high end Barbera pickup. The improvement of an IR is much more startling using a standard UST such as a Fishman Matrix, Fishman Sonitone, or Baggs Element. My guitar has a Schatten passive HFN soundboard transducer and these IRs even work nicely with that fairly natural sounding pickup. The Easy Way to Generate a Custom IR for Your Guitar: Email (jonfields45@gmail.com) me a Dropbox or Google Drive link to your recording. If your .WAV file is less than 25 MB it can be sent as an email attachment. If you Zip up your recordings you can include several in a less than 25 MB email attachment. Generating the IR takes only seconds in Matlab (longer in Octave). If you want, send a few recordings with different mic placements. I like 8” from the neck/body joint, but a more distant mic placement might make what is a better IR for your usage. .WAV file at least 60 seconds long Pickup left, Mic right, set your DAW for the two to be about equal in volume No clipping Try to keep your peaks within 15 dB of clipping (decent SNR) I like open position strumming followed by “E” bar chords going from F to C followed by a little fingerpicking. Play whatever you think best exhibits your playing style and instrument. I’m not sure it really matters. Doug Young’s recording was a fingerstyle tune with occasional strums. I won’t be listening to your recording so don’t worry about impressive playing :~). I will send you back three IRs for each recording. They will be at the same sample rate as the recording you sent me. The one labeled 5050 will be 50% bypass mixed with 50% IR. The IRs will be 2048 samples except for the one explicitly labeled 1024. The three most common errors users have encountered are: To forget to pan the pickup left and mic right when exporting the sample from their DAW. The sample WAV file is less than 60 seconds. If running the script themselves (see next section) they forget to enclose the name of the wave file in single quotes, or include the extension instead of just the wave file name. The Do It Yourself Way: Download the free GNU math development environment Octave and follow the installation instructions for your PC (they support Linux, Windows 64, Widows 32, and Berkeley Unix). https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/download.html Download the Octave version of my IR generator (also attached to this post and downloadable if you log-in to this website): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PtZmcDGo5yXbwjmHJGkhCX3uRyJDuRP- Place your guitar pickup/mic recordings in the same directory as my script jf45ir.m and double clip (run) jf45ir.m. The GUI version of Octave will open in that directory. Alternately, after installing Octave, run the GUI version and change the current directory to the one in which you placed my script and your recordings. If your recording is called mgit.wav, for example, then type the following in the Octave command window followed by a carriage return (don’t forget to include the single quotes before and after the file name and don’t include the ".wav" extension) : jf45ir('mgit') Octave will then generate four files, three IRs plus a frequency plot of the 100% IR. jf45irmgit.wav jf45ir5050mgit.wav jf45ir1024.wav FFTjf45irmgit.jpg Let me know how you make out with the IR. To my mind it is a pretty brute force implementation right out of a textbook, but it seems to produce useful results. The 1024 sample IR should be adequate for most instruments, but the longer version gives the IR better control over the low-E fundamental. I have put this script into the public domain as I think it adds important capability to a multi effects setup for use with an acoustic guitar. Most acoustic guitar solutions are hardwired feature sets including the few that implement IRs. Thanks, Jon jf45ir.m
  2. I am looking for a nice Preset to use for my Ovation 6 String to emulate a 12 string. I used to use Digitech's Mosaic 12 String Effect pedal. I am moving to use my HX FX Effects Box exclusively. I am a 1 month newby in the Helix world, could use all the help I can get. Thanks John
  3. Hi All, Just want to ask the honest opinion from you all if Guitar Brand is important which brand of guitar will you prefer? YAMAHA FENDER GIBSON EPIPHONE Honestly above brands for me YAMAHA and GIBSON are very well know. Would you agree?
  4. Hello every one. Does anyone know how to find some IRs for acoustic guitar ? I didn't find anything by googling. I need some IRs in order to use in my Helix for recording acoustic guitar through cable or mic ( which I don't know which one may works better with IRs) The purpose is creating a killer sound with a not perfect acoustic guitar! ...and please advice how to use it? I mean ordering. TNX :)
  5. Good Morning, I'm looking for a mandolin and an acoustic guitar patch that I can download to my Line 6 xt live. I searched the downloadable patches and the most popular patches didn't sound like an a mandolin or acoustic guitar at all. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Pete-
  6. Normally I play only electric through my Helix rig. But this weekend we're doing a more limited "unplugged" type of show with just acoustic guitar, bass, and singers. I wasn't sure how to approach this but I reasoned it should be pretty darn simple since a lot of acoustic players simply go direct into the PA, and I'm using a Yamaha DXR12 as my stage FRFR (also a line going to the FOH). I figured I would approach it the same way I would if I were trying to record a decent direct acoustic guitar track in the studio. And it is OUTSTANDING!! No amp, no cab, just pure signal from the Takamine P1NC guitar going through a signal chain consisting of a just a volume pedal, 10 band Graphic EQ, LA Compressor, and switchable reverb and delay. Absolutely pure, clean, articulate and gorgeous acoustic sound with some very MINOR tweaks on the 10 band EQ. The EQ on the guitar is pretty much flat with just a minor bump on the low end, and a slight minor bump when I change to finger picking on the highs. I think I may decide to do pull in some more acoustic work in our regular lineup of songs!!! After all the whining on this board, I just thought it would be nice to share a real success story. Good job L6!!
