Today I have added a new product to the Melodiefabriek shop: IR-03, a package of 9 different sounding Impulse Responses which were captured using my trusty old Palmer PDI-03 Speaker Simulator.

An impulse response (IR) file is a superb solution for storing the sound of a guitar speaker cabinet into a digital file. A guitar speaker cabinet is known for its strong midrange and peak frequencies which are caused by the speaker and the reflections inside the cabinet.
Yesterday I read the article ‘Hard Truths: Every Plugin Has a Downside’ that was published on LANDR. I asked myself: are these really Hard Truths like the writer Michael Hahn claims?
I will always record with the volume control(s) and tone control(s) fully open. This way I can capture the unaffected tone of my guitar(s). But I can still lower the treble of the sound using a simple EQ in my DAW in the same way as a tone control on the guitar would.
Back in the day we used this old saying: “you can’t fix it in the mix.” This is no longer true today since we can fix almost anything in the mix.
