    3 Sigma Audio IR's (video clip included)

    Anyone use them?
    3 Sigma Audio - Production Tools for World Class Guitar Tone

    Came across to those from another forum and decided to try. I've bought five IR packs, Mesa 4x12, Engl 4x12, UK Custom, Friedman and some other I don't remember.

    Darn, the Engl 4x12 went straight to my DigiTech GSP1101 as global cabinet. Made my 5150 and Dual Recto patches shine (IMO) and others too.

    Have a listen to this one. It's the same riff played with four different amp models, Dual Recto, 5150, JCM900 (it says JCM2000 there - a mistake By me) and Randall RG100



    And here's a song of mine using those Dual Recto and 5150 patches with the 3 Sigma Eng IR

    They're okay. I think the Ownhammer and Redwirez are still better though.
    Disclaimer: I work ultra part-time for a local music gear dealer. And as a male plus-sized model for mankinis.

    Agreed. Redwirez gave me great sounding IR's for 2+ years until I moved to Positive Grid.

    I've some Ownhammers that I downloaded from their site when they were free. Some Marshall and some Mesa. The problem was that there were a zillion different ones
    and my ears got a bit tired trying those.

    It's really not that hard, particularly with Ownhammer. Their folder layout is awesome. Just start with a Shure SM57 1" off cap edge, and experiment from there. It can get fatiguing, but once you find what you like, how often do you change stuff?

    I bought a couple of Ownhammer IRs libraries and although they sound great, I didn't like to spend half life browsing impulses looking for "the best" one, which could be 200 impulses away. I don't do professional mixing, though. Engineers with experience in all kinds of microphones and positions will find Ownhammer libraries awesome for sure, as they will go straight to the right one.

    I really, really love 3 Sigma Audio impulses. They're essentially the same as Rosen Digital, but with more choices (the "flat" ones work great with ampsims with built-in poweramp simulation). They give me the best "playing through the amp" feeling, whereas Ownhammer have more of a "recorded guitar" sound. 3 Sigma are still much more limited, and for clean or ambient parts Redwirez or Ownhammer are a better option since they sound less "in your face".

    For dudes not needing a bazillion of IRs, 3 Sigmas are hard to beat. They are 7$ a cab and offer mix-and-match bundle discounts. I have 12 cab libraries from them already, and will probably buy some bass cabs to use with Kuassa Cerberus in the future.

    I felt the same way when I got into IRs and still do whenever I look to change them. My advice is to find one fairly quickly you like (or layer 2-3 you like with Le Cab), then commit to tweaking it to death with layers of EQ
