  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. 1. .WAV file at least 60 seconds long 2. Pickup left, Mic right, set your DAW for the two to be about equal in volume 3. No clipping 4. 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 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: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PtZmcDGo5yXbwjmHJGkhCX3uRyJDuRP- Place your guitar pickup/mic recordings in the same directory as my script, jf45ir.m After installing Octave, run the GUI version. 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: 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. Please post links for free Impulse Responses (IR) here. Looking for links to freeware, promotional, basically any IR that is legal to share and download including Helix user created IRs that you are willing to share. THANKS!!! Here is one to get things started: http://www.openairlib.net/auralizationdb This is kind of an interesting site with a huge repository and has some extraordinarily different IRs available for download. There are definitely many in the mono 48khz format preferred by the Helix. The stereo ones can be used as well but you will only get the left channel per the documentation in the Helix. I suppose if you know how you could possibly also transform the IRs that are not in the proper format for the Helix. If you find an IR you like just click on the link and then select the "Impulse Response" tab. I have successfully downloaded the IRs from there. Note: Some browsers will automatically try to play .wav files; you will need to make sure you use a browser that doesn't, or change the settings so that it gives you the option to download or play. I have to admit I have yet to use them but it looks like there is some amazing potential here. These are not mic/cab IRs, they are IRs from all kinds of spaces and structures, natural and man-made, taken from locations around the globe, I imagine they could be used in lieu of a reverb or echo for instance, or perhaps even instead of a cab. Thinking some of these might also work well for acoustic guitar as well as electric. They have one from a space that is described as having the longest natural echo of an any man-made structure in the world. http://www.openairlib.net/auralizationdb
  3. Hi - i got the Celestion pack of Suhr IRs... when i put them in helix, i can't see the full name in helix or in helix edit. for example the Suhr Badger V30 112 C Hi-Gn 421+121 Celestion shows up in the list, but only as Suhr Badger V30 112 C Hi-Gn. the problem is there are 4 or 5 versions of this (different mic/room combos) and it makes it impossible to know which is which when adding to a patch. I could shorten the name before importing, but it's nice to be able to refer to the original names. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  4. Hey all, I experienced some confusion and frustration on the gig last night with my Powercab, and haven’t been able to find a clear answer since. I’m hoping this ever-knowledgeable community can help me sort it out. I’ll try to keep it brief: In the past, I’ve used my Helix (floor) into Powercab+, all analog (XLR to amp) >> Powercab XLR > FOH. All processing was done inside the Helix and I was using Helix cab sims/mics within the Helix, and sending that signal FRFR to Powercab (using Powercab as stage monitor and sending XLR to FOH, sans mic’ing). Everything has been great, always sounds great coming out of FOH. This time, different gig..different needs.. Decided to use 3rd party IR’s and store them in the Powercab (needed to free up processing space, plus figured.. ‘why not’) Setup was Guitar > Helix > (XLR into) Powercab > XLR > FOH. Same deal, just 3rd party IR’s and stored in the Cab. Helix was doing amp sim and effects, but cab IR was on the Powercab. Much to my dismay, at soundcheck.. everything sounded great on stage, but FOH was getting no IR/Cab sim from the Powercab XLR out. This brings me to my question, which I can’t find clearly stated in the manual or anywhere else: Does the Powercab 112+ send the signal of internally stored User IR-processed audio out via XLR?! Empirical (and embarrassing) evidence from last nights show tells me it does not, which to me is baffling and should really be much more clearly stated (Yes I realize I should and could have fully tested this ahead of time, I just assumed whatever was coming out of the speaker would go out the XLR, which had been my experience doing all of the sim’ing internally on the Helix and sending it into the cab FRFR). I don’t understand why you would store IRs, process incoming audio through the IRs.. but not send that processed audio out via XLR. That was my experience, but I can’t find any definitive answer.. is it a setting? Just the way it is? Helix amp sim > User IR in Powercab > all good out the front, no good out the back. I feel like that just can’t be right.. but it’s definitely what I was getting. The quick fix was to dial in the same IR locally on the Helix and use one of my XLR outs (from Helix) straight to FOH, the other to the cab. However in my embarrassed frustration, I failed to appreciate that put me in 2x IR mode on stage.. not a huge deal (and of course avoidable had I been thinking clearly). What was worse, again due to soundcheck timing and frustration.. I forgot to SAVE the patch with IR dialed on the Helix.. powered down.. turned back on at set time.. Needless to say, the first song didn’t sound good.. at all. Fortunately, the sound guy was quick to drop some EQ, but that screechy un-IR’d sound is going to live in my memory for quite awhile. If anyone can definitely help me answer this, I’d be truly grateful. I’m about to set everything up with an XLR out to my board to see what’s what, I suppose I already know.. but I guess I’m trying to find out if there IS a way to get the IR’d audio out via XLR, or if that feature is just intended for ‘in the room’ use and an FOH IR use must come from the Helix directly. Again, to me that sounds just super-wrong. What’s the purpose, to allow you to get the tone you want stored inside the Powercab, but not be able to gig with it.. I just don’t get it (yet :) ) So much for keeping it brief I guess, sorry for the novel. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thx - Steve
  5. I am fairly new to using any kind of impulse response with my Helix as I usually use a Power Stage 170 and a 2x12, but I have recently been toying with the idea of trying out some impulse responses, as I had received a few "free" ones from a couple YouTube channels, I decided to load them up in my Helix LT, the one I got from Glenn Fricker loaded up fine. the ones I recieved from Ola Englund however did not, when loading them into HX Edit, 3 of them work fine, the rest give me this error message: "HX Edit was unable to import IRs into this set due to the following errors: -2- out of memory condition" I did some searching around and figured out that I am receiving this error because of the size of the IRs, the ones that won't import are all 237kb, while the ones that worked fine are significantly smaller, at 59kb and 6kb. is there anything I can do to make the larger ones work with my helix?
  6. I used to like the sound of my helix thru headphones. Since i got the Powercab, it sounds so good, I'm left chasing that sound in quiet time. And i feel my headphones are decent cause they sound like i hear it thru my bx5a monitors. I can't get a crisp sound. It seems muddy no matter how i adjust. Any Ideas?
  7. first world problem if ever there was one... I thought I'd take a trip into the rabbit hole of IR's, why... because they are there! :) I bought the Ownhammer Core Tone Bundle after a bit of research and I'm sure it's very good... but I found it so overwhelming, too many files, too much choice that after a couple of evenings I just deleted them off the helix and vowed never to go there again. Until I got the free Allure pack - I have to say I thought it was great - just a few flies to play with and I got some good sounds really quickly. I know this is all the falut of the user (me) and I know that IR's if you know what you are doing are very useful tools - but did anyone else just get too overwhelmed and would just like more simple packs where some says here's one or two - just use them IR for dummies I guess... anyone else find this? Any other very simple packs people recomened? Cheers Mark
  8. Hey Guys! I got my hands on an HX Stomp and today we are going to run through how to get up and running using it as your audio interface on a Windows 10 PC and with Presonus Studio One 4.0 I walk you through setup and how to record the processed guitar as well as the DI or, Direct Input so that you can reamp at a later time.
  9. Hey Guys, Today we are going over the tone I created using the Line 6 HX Stomp using Ownhammer Impulse Responses. I go over each block, which IR I use as well as how to create snapshots so that you can use this tone as your main rhythm tone as well as a lead tone. If you have any questions, leave them down below and I'll do my best to help you out. Thanks again for all the support.

  12. Hey I just had a thought the other day about possibly creating a preamp through the HX EFFECTS & am wondering if anyone else has tried this?.. OD/DS Pedal ---> EQ Pedal ---> IR Cabinet Sim The idea is the the OD/DS gives u the preamp while the EQ pedal helps you shape the sound a bit more since the first pedal is limited and than add an IR cab to simulate the desired cabinet.
  13. Before I start, to avoid any possible misunderstandings, let me make clear that I absolutely love the Helix. As a result, anything I'm saying isn't to badmouth the unit or Line 6 or their programmers, it's solely in the interest of improving the Helix. Ok. The Helix needs something to organize/manage IRs. As far as the status quo goes, there is literally nothing (!). Yes, you can load IRs and you can export them. And that was about it, nothing else to see. This is absolutely bad. In fact, considering all kinds of organisational aspects, this is by far the worst area in the Helix. It's so bad that there's good chances of "data" (=patch) loss. Which IMO isn't acceptable. Fwiw, all this hasn't got anything to do with the amount of IRs you can load into the Helix, it's just as bad when you use just 10 IRs and it'd very likely become a nightmare in case we could use, say, 1000 IRs. Let me illustrate things using an example: If I would post 10 patches, each of them using 2 IR blocks and I'd also post the 20 IRs used for those patches, you would very likely *never* be able to recreate the patches as they were meant to sound. The IR blocks within the patches would only tell you which IR slot was used (and load whatever might be there on your unit). There's absolutely no further meaningful connection between a patch and IR. So, if you wanted to load my patches properly, I would have to explain which IRs would have to load in which IR block. That already requires me to look it up before exporting them and write it down. It would also require you to find a free IR slot on your unit, place the IRs there, load the patches, read my instructions and set the IR blocks accordingly. Ok, now let's compare this to a softwaresampler patch (yes, it's absolutely comparable, it's software that has to load samples in some sort of "slots" to deliver reproduceable results). I could send you 10 Kontakt (software sampler from Native Instruments) patches using 2 samples each and I could as well send you the 20 samples used. Once you load the patches, Kontakt would ask you about the samples. You'd point it to the folder where you've unzipped them and Kontakt would load them (you could even tell it to do a systemwide search if you wanted). Done. And that is precisely how things should be dealt with. There needs to be a direct connection between a patch and the IRs it's using. As a result, HX Edit would have to tell you an IR was missing when you try to load the patch and didn't load the IR before. It should also be able to re-assign the IRs needed on it's own and ignore any IR slot information. And it should also be able to find out whether the required IR would already be loaded in one of the slots, to avoid doubled IRs. Very obviously, HX Edit should as well allow you to export an IR along with a patch (exactly the same way that software samplers do it), not embedded but next to it inside a folder called "Cool Rock Riff IRs". In addition, it'd be great (and possibly easy to code) if you could check whether and how often each loaded IR would be used in patches. In case it's not used at all - fine, just clear it to have some more IR space. In case it's only used on patches you don't care for anymore, export all these, delete them and the IR as well. Whatever it might be (as usual, there'd be more ways to skin this cat), everything would be better than what we have at the moment, which - well - is nothing.
  14. Hey guys, I'm new to the HELIX familly I did a research on YouTube and Google and I can't fin any information about this. I wish to use 2 block with IR (1024) in parallel. Any help on how to do so would be appreciated. My Goal : Is to mix 2 mic within the same preset. Example mix a 57 with a 121. How do you set it up ? (2 block using 1024 IR) How do you blend the 2 ? (mono input and output) (Using Split Y, (Pan left, right ) or Split Y A/B?) Cheers,
  15. Hi, I just bought an HX Stomp. Downloaded my first IR and was trying them out. Just for fun, I cleared them to try new ones and now I'm having problem transferring IR to my unit, even the same IR i was already using. My HX Stomp stays "blocked" saying Transferring Data... and my soft is also blocked. I tried changing USB Ports, not using a hub, any possible combination and it's driving me crazy. I even reset everything and still doesn't work. Could it be a faulty unit? Thanks in advance for your help
  16. I've been loving the HX Stomp for the past month or so, but there is one limiting factor that I can't seem to find a workaround for. What I would like to do is sum several EQ blocks into a single Impulse Response in order to save DSP power (like was done in this video). However, unlike in the full Helix, the USB in/out selection options in HX Edit seem to not be nearly as flexible on the Stomp. This means that when I try to use deconvolution software to make the IR (I'm using the Impulse Response Utility through MainStage), it won't let me because I can only chose USB 5/6 on the input (which are the re-amping slots that bypass the Stomp's effects) and the only output option is the 1/4 line outs on the back of the Helix. Therefore, when I do the audio sweep to make the IR, it doesn't work because the sweep doesn't input through the helix effects and won't come out through USB (unless I'm doing it wrong...). Does anybody have any ideas on how to get around this? Here are some links that have gotten me close to an answer, but I'm out of my league here when it comes to understanding how to get what I'm after... Thanks for your help in advance, this is my first time posting here! -How to use the Stomp as an audio interface -How to make an impulse response on a mac -Converting SDIR files to WAV -Relevant forum discussion

    Importing IRs

    Hi All, I'm new to using Amp models and IRs. I own a HX Stomp and i'm crazy about it. I've purchased some IRs from Celestion and Own Hammer and have used them with the amp sims that come with HX Stomp. They sound amazing. I'm very happy. My question is regarding the settings when importing IRs. I see there are two slots one labeled 1024 and the other for 2048. Also, the IR files that I have come in a variety of kHz, ms and Bit rate formats. For example, in my Celestion pack there is a choice of importing 200 ms files vs 500 ms files and within those folders, there are several options for kHz and Bit rates. I read page 27 of the HX Stomp Users Manual that states: "HX Edit updates the HX Stomp hardware's IR list automatically. HX Stomp can load and store up to 128 IRs at a time. 48kHz, 16-bit, mono, .WAV type IRs of up to 2,048 samples are natively supported; however, HX Edit lets you import IR .WAV files of different sample rate, bit depth, length and stereo format, and the app will convert these attributes automatically before sending to HX Stomp". -and- "The imported IR is automatically shortened (or lengthened) to 2,048 samples.You may optionally choose a 1,024-sample version from the model list to save DSP, which fades out the IR halfway through". Ok so, this may sound like stupid questions but like I said earlier, I'm new to all this and don't quite understand what Line 6 is saying. Can someone school me on what all this means and how I should select the IR files for importing to my HX Stomp and how it could effect my tone? Thank you.
  21. Im new to the hx fx and could really use some recommendations and help regarding impulse responses. I run my guitar through a bbe sonic maximizer and then through a vox Ac50 ( with upgaded tubes, and V30’s :) ) I run the hx fx in 4cm. My band rehearses D.I. Into the mixer ( drummer plays a roland TD30, so its really nice) but its still important for me to use the AC50 as the tone is incredible and regardless of the fact we all use “ in ears” live and in rehearsal im using a moderate amount of amp volume on stage and blending it with my D.I. Signal into the P.A./monitors. Thats why i was really excited to use impulse responses. Heres where i can use some help/recommendations and opinions. 1. Ive played around with placing the IR block before and after the Fx loop 1 block. so far I prefer it placed after, but i cant really tell much of a difference. Anyone have any info or experience with this? what is your preference? 2. I downloaded a bunch of IRs . I have some “speaker” ones (the allure pack) and those all seem pretty useable. One of the best results ive had so far is the V30 IR (from allure) I have the mix set to 100 and the volume somewhere around -6.5 -8.0 db I also find it totally necessary to use the low cut feature as the bass frequencies easily start to overdrive. Changing IR,s the confusion/frustration/doubt starts to set in. Heres some examples- Acoustic guitar resonace ir’s i have , including this hollowbody ir i have sound absolutely funky. Maybe they are crappy idk but its led me to believe that IR’s work best emulating something similar to your sound. I mean i run v30s out of my cab. So running a V30 IR after my effects loop block seems to make my D.I. Signal sound alot more like my amp and that is a wonderful result. but trying to make it sound like a jazz box, or a hummingbird acoustic, is experimental and probably wont yield good results. However, i did load a gods cab (its like a 6505 with a mesa cab and a sm7b mic) it needed a ton of low cut. And it really overdrove my signal easily. But at -8.0 db lvl with 100mix and a low cut, when i added a distortion, i got a killer sound. I mean awesome metal tone. some feedback or personal experience on this would be a godsend. 3. So to some it up into some more direct questions. whats with the overdriving? are some of these ir,s supposed to be distorted? where as some are just clean cabinet/mic “simulations” (or moments in time whatever you wanna call it) -8db seems awful low for a level setting should i be looking elsewhere? what kind of mix and level do you guys use? Is 2048 samples always better? Anything pertaining to using impulse responses with hx fx in 4cm especially settings would help alot. If in the end i can properly add an IR to all my presets resulting in my DI sounding more realistic and just having better tone altogether i would be very happy. just dont know if im doing it right.

    Load Box with helix

    Hi, How do I connect the cables If I'm using Two Notes Torpedo Captor load box with my tube amp? Is this corret: Helix send 1 to amp's input then load box output to helix return 1? Then IR block?
  23. Hello, I was wonderwing if with the HX Stomp i can get 1 signal chain with effects/amp modeling/IR impulse to go to the FOH, and a second signal with just effects/amp modeling to my power amp and cab (so without IR impulse). Thanks in advance!! Greetz Wouter
  24. Hey Guys, I get a lot of question about IR's (impulse responses) and how to use them or how I use them. So today I hit on 3 key topics to help explain a bit about it. We touch briefly on what an IR is, where I prefer to get the ones I use and 1. Loading and Organizing 2. Mixing Mic's / Stacking of IR's and checking phase 3. IR overload (Having TOO MANY options) If you guys have any questions, drop a comment and I will do my best to answer them. Thanks so much for all the support. nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/nickhillmakesmusic
  25. I just purchased a helix like a week ago and I’m starting to get the hang of it. I’ve been watching tutorials and and reading forums. My question was, does it matter where in the signal path I place the amp or cabs? Does it make a difference? Everything I’ve read or watched, people just seem to place it somewhere in the middle. Or do you have to think of it like a real pedal board, where the amp comes last? Please help.
