    Help With Piezo and IR's

    I recently joined the world of IR's (impulse responses). It's bewildering. I've been using a Gamechanger w/piezo for a while now but never used IR's until just recently.

    Looking specifically for something designed for piezo's in solid body guitars that makes it more like a full acoustic.

    Anybody have any experiences or recommendations?

    3Sigma has some.

    Check out the Fractal boards. I’m sure you can find some good info there.
    I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it. EVH

    I've been using the 3Sigma Martin IRs - which weren't too bad at all.

    I actually prefer using the TC Electronic Body Rez for my Piezo - think it sounds more realistic

    There is indeed an acoustic IR at fractal's that is so satisfying I don't remember seeing another one ^^
    But I don't know where to get it extracted from the preset.
    I use it with my petrouchs

    I actually thought I could get better tone with a tube preamp (Kingsley Maiden) and some EQ compared to the 3Sigma IR's processed through by the AMT Pangaea. Not impressed with the 3Sigma IR's at all at this point.
