After getting the Alpha Omega Ultra, and downloading the Darkglass Suite to load cab sims and what not, I was trying to figure out how to load other sims, since that is a feature.
I was also looking up some other devices on Amazon. Joyo has this Cab box pedal that actually looks pretty amazing. I watched JHS Pedals do a review on the newer Joyo pedals and he ran every pedal thru this thing to show how good this amp less device was.
While reading about the features, it kept saying it had installed Amp sims, Cab sims and IR slots with 10 spots to load your own
After seeing this IR mentioned over and over, I felt kind of dumb for not knowing WTF an IR is. so I looked it up, started reading about it, and started looking for some. of course, most of them cost money, and I was still not sure that it was even compatible with my AOU, so I did not want to pay for anything.
My search for free IR WAV files took me to threads on TalkBass. one of the TalkBass members is this Dr. B that has a sound lab and creates IR files for sale. He supports them thru talk bass as well as on his site. anyway, the following is a post created by Dr. B on talk bass. the link is to some free IR files he put on his site for FREE download to help spread a little joy thru the days of COVID-19
you can follow the link to the pack that you will need to select .wav files as the type, and then ADD TO CART, then CHECK OUT. you need to give an e-mail address, and billing address, but you DO NOT need to give any credit card information. you create a password at the very end, check the button to say I AGREE, and then press PURCHASE.
You will need something to up-pack the compressed file, and if you don’t have anything, it gives you a link to a free un-zip download that works.
I have downloaded, unpacked and added them to my Alpha Omega Ultra successfully, I just have not tested them yet.
Here is the link for anybody that wants it.
Also, please share any IR’s or sites for free or good paid for IR files in this thread if you have any.
