With the new direct profiling, you should have a clean cut between the amp and the cabinet, and not the "blurred line" between the two as previously. So no amp "residue" in the cabinet section of a rig.
I am wondering what this means for the cab portion of the (new) profiles. Will they in essence be exactly the same as an impulse response of the same cab? Or are there other parameters involved in the cab section still?
I hope this is understandable.
The reason being that I would like to be able to have more control over the mic'ing scheme than what is currently possible (for fun, learning and recording). If the "new cabs" are essentially the same as impulse responses, then I would just use cab maker and my previously purchased RedWirez impulse response library.
