Okay, maybe not the place to drop it in, but an Axe newbie here - what is IR Lab? I did a Google search, came up with everything but something relevant. As for the rest - this is all very interesting. I too had adapted Scott's NF/FF approach and found it worked very well with all but one amp (Trainwreck sounded better at default to my ears) in my current set. I look forward to following this and trying out some of ideas conveyed here.
