Cheers, no problem, if you have any questions just ask!MadHatter_Lurch wrote:Thank you awesome answer! so I still need an interfeace. Whinozoku just turned me on to This I will save up for it, because the only way I have to get the sound to my computer is to go 1/4" to1/8" cable to my mic/linein. This thread has been amazing and insightful!

You see a while back, I was doing some recording for a band and the singer(friend of mine) plugged in a handheld recorder from one side of the room into my computer's line in (power from the other side of the room) without asking me. My onboard sound card(amazing quality oddly) is now fried for recording purposes. So would the IR work for this computer, or would I jsut have to use it on the Laptop(the only way I can currently record) and if not.... Hey anyone know a good yet affordable audio interface for a computer? Thanks!
The impulse response itself only holds that information. (it's a wav file of a few kb)
So what you need is a plugin (in Reaper, Cubase or whatever) that can load impulses and affect the sound with how the impulse dictates it should.
When send a preamp signal through that plugin it basically acts as a poweramp+cab+mic simulator.
So yeah it basically is software.
But there are some hardware boxes that can load impulses.
Like the Line 6 stuff, Fractal Axe-FX, Digitech GSP (beta firmware).
That way you can run to the PA board with impulses as cab sim (or just practice through headphones)
Hat by any other name is still Mad
We're here to help
BTW, do check out some other interface they have
If you're using your Randall as a preamp then PodFarm might be overkill..
On the other hand, it's always fun to play with
