My IR won't load

Recommended Posts

HI all,
Received my PC+ yesterday. 

Till yesterday reading everything about it and how to hook it up (got a Helix, Gibson LP and Variax).

Thought that disable the IR in my Helix and using a speaker model in the PC+ would bring me into heaven.

 

Used my main patch (2204 Line6 mod), disabled the IR and used the vintage and cream speaker. My sound was a kind of a broken radio on AM. Bad.

Some people told me that they only had to adjust a little to have a heavenly sound. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I cannot detect it. Sound is just very bad.

Gibson into Helix, L6 link to PC+ (110 ohm XLR cable)

Tried XLR Helix out, XLR PC+ in. Same sound.

 

Build a patch from scratch, used the V30 after using high and low cuts.....better sound but not one that I could raven about.

 

My Marshall .WAV file, which I use in my Helix as an IR together with my L2m of DXR10, is sounding OK.

So I thought to use that .WAV file and put the PC+ in the FRFR mode. Wanted to put this IR into a free slot in my PC+.

That gave me an error: 'Could not load IR'

Huh? Export the IR from my Helix to disk and form disk to the PC+. Same error. My favorite IR is working flawlessly on my Helix but cannot be loaded into the PC+

Someone facing the same problem? IS there a solution?

Thnx!

Just taken delivery of a PC+ two days ago.

 

Exact same thing happened with me.

I tried flat mode with my usual IRs engaged for reference (sounded great, just like my L2T) then turned off the IR and tried a few PC speakers.

Inferior sound, not the huge inprovment I was expecting.

I've decided to take my FRFR cab and Powercab to a rehearsal room and create duplicate patches so I can A/B between set-ups and hopefully create improved tones with the PC.

 

I also loaded some IRs into the PC editor software and thought it would be simplicity itself to load them into the PC.

Half an hour of head scratching later, I gave up.

I must be missing something basic here?...

This is useful. Good tips on midi but also shows how to add IRs to the PC.

slowly getting there.

Using the Mid Gain Monsters IR, adjusting the high & low cuts en all is more to my liking.

 

But still wondering:

 

Have the Gibson LP - Dial in the 2204 mod amp, using no IR or CAB and nothing else form the Helix into the PC using the vintage or cream speaker model. Sound = NOK. Strange.... Using the L6 link.

 

But can hear that my sound is there, just have to adjust en finally I will get there. But hoped it was a simple no brainer to have that rocksound without tweaking. Sadly, not in my case

Yeah, I'm getting close to where I want to be with the PC but I've had to rework amp settings.

Next stop: midi cable so I can gig with the PC.

 

Roll on Line 6 link making speaker changes in the PC, hope that happens soon.
