I looked at my original download package and there are wav files in there, along with the Fractal syx files. I cannot confirm they are still included, but it would make sense.
Ed, I have a newb question that you may or may not be able to answer. I just got a Neural DSP Quad Cortex, and it’s my first real adventure into the digital world (always been a real tube amp guy). I’m loving it so far, but I also don’t really have a full grasp on what I’m doing. Neural says you can use 3rd party Cab IRs, but do you know if that would include the Syn Cab packs?

I do actually have two real Hellwin heads and a Hellwin 4x12 cab, so I have attempted some captures on them, with less than ideal results so far (probably just because I don’t know what I’m doing yet). But I am interested in the whole set of Syn Cab packs, if they can be used on the QC.

If you know, let me know. If not, no big deal.

    I've heard such great things about the QC, I'm excited for you. Yes, you can load the IRs from the Syn Cab Pack - not the *.syx files that are specifically for the AxeFX, but also included are *.wav IR files that are a pretty universal IR format.

    This article is two years old, and the process may be simpler now, or not, but this is still active on Neural's site, so I expect this is still the process.


    IR captures are really hard to do properly, so I don't even bother trying. Syn took the time, and I'm glad he did!

    Excellent! Thanks for the info. I wasn’t sure if they came with a universal format, or just the Fractal format. I’ll have to save up a little bit after splurging on the QC, but I’ll probably get the Syn cab packs. Thanks again!

    No, and I’ve recently found out that these were NEVER shipped with non-AxeFX (wav) files. Apparently, I found a tool online and converted them to wav about a year ago and forgot, and the conversion is, shall we say, “less than accurate.”

    so, at this time, the Axe-FX cab pack is ONLY for Fractal products. I apologize for the confusion.
