So I took the SY1000 SWAM cello I created and stuck it through a Cello IR loaded on my AXE FXii.

It makes a world of difference, it's a shame that the SY1000 can't load IRs as this would make it amazing.

Sounds great! Believe it or not, quite a few synth patches (especially the flute sounds) are enhanced by acoustic IRs.  It gives them a warmth and takes off that overly digital edge.

I shared a Cello IR here: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/cello-preset-tone-match-and-ir-included.164770/

I used Kontakt Emotive Strings Library, tonematched against a sawtooth signal

I recorded this track using the SY-1000 sawtooth synth processed through the Axe-FX III

Thanks for reposting, i will play with it on my fm3. Really super sounds you are making

Yea that does make a difference as it takes some of the synthyness sound out of it.

what brand rosin are you using for the bow? ;D

I dropped the AMP module in the chain and tried a couple of amp/cab/etc combinations. One can get a pretty realistic sound with that.

3 Sigma Audio is one source of cello body IR.

The TC Electronic Impulse works well in the SY-1000 FX loop.

I guess using IR-200 or IR-2 in the loop with that cello IR would do the trick :)

While Boss laughs all the way to the bank and our pedalboards are getting bigger and heavier.

In short-format cab convolution, an IR is little more than an EQ curve.

The EQ in the SY-1000 is pretty decent-- not surgical but good for general purpose shaping.

Sounds fantastic!
Could you share the IR file itself in WAV or AIF format, if that's feasible?
(I don't have an Axe Fx)

Thanks anyway! :)

Hmmm - this gives me an idea to play with the Flamma FS07 with the SY for some things.   I primarily was using it with the VG-99 to make the guitar amps more palatable but for the last 3 months it's been plugged into the SY but was using it mostly with some overdrive to give it a more bottom end kick in the pants.
