Hey Guys,

The chain is as follows:

PRS SE Tremonti with Fishman Fluence Modern pickups 
--
Line 6 Helix Rack using Ownhammer Impulses

Universal Apollo Twin
--
Presonus Studio One 3

Hey thanks for posting this.  I've been having a really hard time getting a usable metal tone from Native (not a problem from my floor unit - weird).  Way too much bass and all the cuts weren't helping.  I actually think it's my Sigma 3 IR - I listened to a side by side comparison and the Sigma IR seems to add a lot more than necessary low end and the Ownhammer IR's seem to have more clarity.  I'll be reviewing your video a couple more times.  Any other tips or videos you can share would be appreciated.  I'm new to audio recording so this is a whole new mysterious world to me!

Different IRs make a massive difference. Given a highly distorted signal that covers the whole frequency range, an IR can almost completely transform the output. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwgyUzXU2Lk

 

Usually IRs from a supplier like Ownhammer or 3 Sigma don't create intentionally massive differences like in the video, but there is still the potential for very significant changes in the output that can be as distinctive as using a completely different amp. So you absolutely do need to compare and contrast the IRs you're using.

I'm glad you got something out fo the videos man. Reach out to me and let me know what topics you'd like help with. I'd love to make more videos helping out fellow music makers. Thanks again
