Hi all!

I just stumbled over this interesting thing:
Guitarampmodeling

More or less it states that Ampsims like the ones in Guitar Rig3 for example are not very good/exact and there´s a much better way to emulate the sound of different amps/cabs.

So - does any one of you pros out there use this sort of emulation and would you recommend it for us lesser mortals as well?! laugh.gif

Cheers

There was a thread about Impulses. Cool tool but I haven't tried it.

Occasionally if I want to keep everything in the box ie get the clean signal digitised in as few links as possible and in to the DAW and then keep it in the DAW. For my set up it's more or less

guitar--> ADC ---> Reaper ---> DAC ---> Speakers.

Reaper then has impulses/software amp models in as vst for processing and mixing.

Check out pms from mba64 - he's posted a lot of very useful stuff on impulses including a lot of links to software amps and impulses.

I've tried Amplitube Fender, and it models clean and crunch Fender tones way better than GR3. Not sure about impulses, but I'm planning to go through that technology in depth very soon.

Guitarhacks very good

Does anybody knows what are the best cabinet impulses around, regardless of the price?

The two methods both have pros and cons, but for different reasons. Really, neither an impulse or any synthesis technique is going to yeild very accurate results. An impulse-like system can be used to generate a function/look-up that will yeild about as accurate a result as you will ever find, through the application of adaptive filtering techniques, but the ammount of data/processing it would require to work are just collosal so it's not really feasable with current technology, even as an off-line system it would be a bit ridiculous.

I'm not against digital processing, I just think perhaps that it still has a long way to come before it becomes more than just a set of interesting effects and can replace a good analog setup. Saying that, I use a modelling amp to practice with, so it's still useful!

I agree with AdamB, the thing is that it seem`s that impulses are better shaped than the cab modeling that is default in some ampsims ,I have found out that there is several very very good sound`s on the net, and nearly all are using impulses mostley for higain.
Here is a exemple of a guy who is using Revolver and a real cab 6505 and he is panning the real cab sound from left and rigth and the same with the revolver and a Impulse.

Well I tried some of the links and even got my hands on other stuff as well, but either I´m not using them correctly or the difference in sound is so marginally small that I think I won´t bother going into this thing any deeper!

Either the difference is really small or I might be deaf - that would also account to the small difference I hear! laugh.gif
