joetink Posted June 4, 2017 Share Posted June 4, 2017 Hello All! Despite being a guy who has used Line 6 gear, as well as other modeling software/hardware for about 15 years, as records FAR more frequently than playing live, I'm fairly new to using impulse responses. This afternoon I decided, after a year and a half of owning my Helix, to download some freebies from Ownhammer, as well as some other supposed hi-quality freebies. First off...WOW, talk about bringing the guitar sound 'to life'! I use Helix the most these days, but before that (and after the Pod Live and HD500), I was a big BIAS fan. Using an IR gives the Helix that same feel that the stock cabs don't seem to quite capture. The issue that I've experienced with all of the IRs, however, is that there seem to be some type of phasing issue. This isn't noticeable at all when playing rhythms or playing single notes low on the neck, but becomes very noticeable when playing single note lines higher on the fretboard. It is as if a few seconds after hitting a sustained note,the high end cuts off as if there were a phaser on. At first I thought this was just maybe due to a poor quality impulse response, but given that I've tried a variety if responses, some from high quality manufacturers, the issue persists with all impulses, and isn't as prominent when playing multiple notes or doing double-stops, but is definitely there when using single-string notes. I'm also using the 2048 option for length of IRs. I'm wondering if there is something I have wrong for settings, whether it's something inherent in using IRs, or whether I'm doing something wrong. Any advice, insight, or help would be appreciated! -Joe Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
