Impulse Responses for cabinet simulation are often offered in sample rate flavours like 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz. What sample rate should you choose?
The Reason RV7000 device, which is available in all versions of Reason (Intro, Standard and Suite), is not only a high quality reverb processor, it also contains a zero-latency Convolution algorithm. This can be used for processing IR files for cabinet speaker simulation.

Recently I became aware of a rather new technique for modelling guitar amps, overdrive pedals and other non-lineair equipment. It’s called black-box modelling.
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.
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.
