I know its been talked about before - many of us wish there was a reasonably priced device that just did IR's. Even better would be a dummy load box that did IRs and went directly to USB for recording. There is almost such a device - Two Notes Torpedo VB-101 http://www.two-notes.com/en/hardware/torpedo-vb-101/ It is a load box that allows you to use IRs for recording. Although, there are few problems with this: - it isn't clear to me if you can load your own IR's or only theirs - the USB out is only for control of the unit and NOT for recording - it is a bit high priced - $2,000 US So here's the point - this got me thinking, couldn't you go out of your amp's power section --> DI --> Weber attenuator / dummy load, BUT run the DI into a GSP1101? This would allow you to dial in the power amp to taste and record direct USB. Something even better than the above solution for about 1/3 the price. I'm running my modelers with cab sim OFF, then through the power section of my tube amp, to a DI and using IR's as plugins. I find this gives a much more realistic tone than even the modeler direct with IRs. However, it's a bit of a pain to hook up and more importantly, it is not silent recording as I still need my speaker hooked up to the power amp after the DI. Also this is not a solution I would use live of course as it involves a PC. So I was wondering a few things: 1. Has anyone tried anything like this, or think the idea has merit? 2. How do you manipulate the IRs on the screen of the GSP1101? I do like the visual mic and cab on the tornado. I don;t expect that, but you probably have to just go by name of the file? Thanks!
