    The Impulse FAQ/Tutorial Thread

    Can anyone offer some guidance? I'm trying to use impulses for the first time, and I'm having some trouble. I'm going direct and using the LePou plugins with LeCab in Reaper and I'm not quite getting it. Every tutorial I see has a step before they add the IR and the tone sounds really fuzzy and...

    Advice on some pedals

    What's a good place to start with his stuff? I'm gonna probably see him and BTBAM and I don't wanna be completely lost.
