Troubleshooting the tone

Postby DeadSleepDez » Fri May 29, 2015 10:49 pm

I have downloaded just about every plug in from Ignite Amps and tried several combinations for levels/impulses. However, the sound Im getting from these amps/impulse responses sounds terrible. I've watched several videos on the site as well. The tones they achieve is incredible. Any tips? I will openly admit that I'm a Newbie to amp modeling. Thanks guys.

Are you using an impulse loader VST (and an impulse, or more) on top of your amp head simulators?

Let's say you're using the Emissary plugins, you need to consider this as just an amp head, but it does not include a speaker! So yeah, using this on its own will sound terrible.

You need:
- an amp head simulator (NRR1, Anvil, Emissary...)
- an impulse loader (Ignite Amps' NadIR will do) => that simulates the speakers, but won't produce any sound until you feed it with "impulses"...
- impulses. Now these babies are where the magic comes in. A good choice of impulse will make your sound great or average. These are short sound files that aim to reproduce the sound you would get from particular speakers recorded with particular microphones from a certain distance and position. There are tons of free impulses out there. Among the commercial ones, I highly recommend Redwirez' impulses.

So basically, the chain should be:
Amp head simulator => Speaker simulator (impulse loader + impulse)

And of course you may add simulated stomp boxes, reverbs, etc. to create the sound you crave for.
