Will York Audio IRs work with my gear?Yes, our impulse responses are compatible with any digital amp modeler, plugin, pedal, or load box capable of importing IRs in .wav format. Our packs include 96k, 48k, and 44.1k sample rates. Just refer to your gear's owner's manual to find the sample rate that's right for your equipment and use the appropriate option. Simple.
I'm not seeing some of the Cab Packs I've purchased in my account. Why is that?Our website host, Wix, currently allows digital download links to be valid for 30 days. We're working with them to change this, but until then, just send an email through the contact page and we'll take care of you. It is highly recommended to backup your Cab Packs on a thumb drive or external hard drive in case you have any computer issues resulting in missing files and need immediate access to previously purchased products.
I really love the Mixes in your packs, but I how do I know what mics are being used?"The manual to every product includes a list of all multi-mic mixes with the mics used for each mix. Mixes were given numbers to keep the file names shorter. Use what sounds good to you. You may be surprised by the mics you end up liking.
The other IR guys use numbers or letters to show their IR’s brightness and darkness. Why don’t you do that?I feel it’s very limiting to focus on a small section of a speaker just to get different levels of top end (essentially). I always have a bright capture for each mic, but I think it makes more sense to capture great sweet spots all over the speaker. It gives you a wider range of of tonal options with fewer IR’s to audition.
Should I keep my amp knobs at noon to find the right IR for me?If that’s how you like to set your amps, then go for it! But I recommend you dial your amp the way you like it, check out the Mixes (or Singles), choose one that feels right to you, and turn a few knobs to hone it in. Too dark? Lower your bass or raise your treble. Too bright? Just lower your treble or presence like you would on a real amp. I never set my real amps all at noon, and I’ve never seen anyone else do it either. We’re guitar players. We turn knobs until it sounds the way we want.
What are some of the tech specs for your Cab Packs?Files come in 96k, 48k, and 44.1k sample rates to use with any modeler, plugin, or load box that can load IRs. They’re 500ms files in both MPT and RAW formats. I used 500ms files to maximize the detail in each IR and to keep from “folder fatigue.” Hardware units that utilize 200ms files will truncate (shorten) York Audio files upon import to their preferred length. Units that can host 500ms files will benefit from the detail in the longer file.
I see that different Cab Packs have different mics. What’s that all about?Every Cab pack is released with at least 6 essential mics. A 57, 421, e906, M160, R-121, and a C414. Those mics cover A LOT of ground, but inspiration happens and I want to shoot other mics on a cab. Also, Cab Packs will get free updates from time to time. So I may add more mics, more single captures, more mixes, etc….
I love how your Cab Packs sound! Can I share them with my friends since I bought them?Sorry bud, but it’s illegal to share York Audio products. The products are LICENSED to you, but you DO NOT own them. If you’re happy with my work, I’d appreciate it if you’d encourage your friends to buy the packs too. They’re priced affordably, and your continued support means I’ll be able to make more great stuff for you.
So what can I do to support York Audio?Such a great question! You can follow York Audio on our social media pages, create YouTube videos showcasing your great new tones, talk about YA on gear forums. Basically, just spread the word.
