Why do some third party patches have both a Cab and IR block??

Recommended Posts

For example GD's patches have a 4 x 10 bass cabinet in all the patches and then an IR block (with his custom IRs. If anyone knows, please let me know.


Also, many downloaded patches use IR, but many do not list the IR or even what CAB the IR replicates.

Glens patches include a custom tone matching IR at least in the Boutique patch sets - an IR is a method of embedding potentially very complex EQ curves into a single unit, so Glen has tweaked the base amp to get close to the target amp tone and then created a tone-match IR to get the last little bit.

That is the community view anyway, Glen himself didn't say, but you might be able to get him to explain if you ask him directly - he is gangsterusa on these forums
