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.

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.
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.
