I do have a couple of suggestions for design improvements that would help the functionality of the Eleven Rack in regards to editing rig settings : 1. Enable the "save" button to do 2 things instead of one, so that if pressed once quickly (held down for less than 1 second), it will temporarily save the adjusted rig settings from an edit session so that one can compare the edited rig to some other rigs without losing... more »
For a live situation it would really useful to be able to turn off all amp modeling on Eleven Rack when you are running through a tube power amp or a traditional guitar amp.
You could use ER as a preamp only (like Mesa tri-axis) or similar.
Note: this was meant to be in the Eleven Rack area... A new feature similar to 'Rig Out Cab off' but have 'Rig Out Cab Off + FOH' so we can have cab modeling on the mains and it off on Output 1+2 simultaneously. This way we don't need to manually setup patches everytime we want to run FOH and monitor at the same time. If this can be done, reverb needs to be included on the cab off option for Output 1+2. - Parametic... more »
for comparing the edited preset with the original saved one.
now we have to scroll from one to the other.
By putting the "meter" in the output window you can instantly see what's going on.
quote from a tread on TGP:"I'm fascinated by what I've heard about third parties like Redwirez who I've heard have achieved new levels of realism in their speaker cabinet models than can be purchased, downloaded and introduced into one of your competitors devices".
Or maybe if Avid comes out with their own (extensive list of) IR's?
In response to HIro's request to post specific amp or FX emulations as individual ideas, I would like to suggest a model based on the Peavey 5150. While there are certainly more "boutique" high gain amps out there, the Peavey is fairly ubiquitous and most guitarists are familiar with the 5150 (which is now the 6505 or something like that).
On a number of threads in various forums, 11R users have commented about the need for pitch based effects. Personally, I would really like to see a detune effect (similar to what is on the TC Electronics G System) which will provide the doubled guitar sound common to 80's rock and metal. While there are obvious work arounds to achieve this when recording in PT, having this effect as an option would great when using the... more »
Since the Dumble ODS may be "the" boutique amplifier, having one on the 11R makes sense. A good Dumble emulation would make dialing up Robben Ford and Larry Carlton type tones easier. I've played an actual Dumble on three different occasions, and the True-Z capabilities of the 11R may make it the only modeler capable of capturing the unique (to me at least) touch sensitivity of a Dumble. Of course, adding a new amp model... more »
Fairly flat response, clean, and relatively inexpensive for Avid to purchase or rent. JC-120's, although solid state, can be heard on numerous recordings and sound great clean, particularly when using active pickups (to my ears at least).
If you haven't played an original Marshall Shredmaster, go on an immediate Monty Python style quest to find one. The original production units are stellar dirt pedals. These pedals sound fantastic in front of "anything," and a properly constructed model should as well.
Sometimes I just want to detune a 7 string, wear a strange mask, and play modern metal. A model of a Bogner Ubershall would definitely allow me to accomplish this. A model of this amp would, to my ears at least, need a new cabinet model to truly capture the low end "chug" of which it is capable.
This would technically be a preamp model (I guess). Those of us of a certain age remember these units. The sound, which some may view as dated, is certainly unique. I can't think of anyone else modeling the distortion of the X100 or Soloist. Units are readily and cheaply available (not that I believe Avid is a penny pinching group of tight wads, but you never know).
By far one of the most requested features when folks discuss the 11R on various internet forums. Many modeling units which attempt to recreate the Whammy really fall short. I believe the 11R has the needed horsepower to successfully emulate this effect.
Certainly a classic and instantly recognizable chorus effect.
