SinMix comparisons had more sense ... oh wait . He was banned. There's only noobs left
I'll contact PRS about them. Thanks for the suggestion Renaud
You could just mod your PRS : [Blocked Image: https://forum.seymourduncan.co…2706&d=1503973629&thumb=1]
Honestly I had much better acoustic sounds from my PRS 22 Piezo
Off course you will have better tone from piezo.
The piezo transducer is based on vibration and not on the signal from electromagnetic pickups. It is obvious that it will sound better because the simulation is for electromagnetic pickups. If you have piezo - use piezo. Why bother with simulation? You will never get better resutls then with piezo pickup . I see it in this way(soundwise) :
- electric guitar with neck humbucker + SIM is worst then
- electric guitar with neck single pickup + SIM is worts then
- electric guitar with piezo pickup is wost then
- acoustic guitar with piezo pickup is worst then
-acoustic guitar with mic + preamp + good room
In my PRS there is a push pull Vol Pot which is rewire humbacker's to singles(only one section of the humbucker is working), and you can get best results with neck single coil pickup
Call me stupid... but why ?
I think it is becouse of the input signal structure. Humbuckers tends to tame high frequency content. And the bridge pickup have less low frequency content. Simulator use existing frequency content to simulate AC guitar sound. If there is no high or low frequency in the input signal there is hard to shape this low level signals. The AC sound is based mostly on Low body resonance and High strumming sound(
this is obviously a big simplification).
You can use KPA looper for this purpose too.
Nope, you're not wrong. At least I hope so.
It should make the piezo in my PRS P22 redundant.
I'm afraid your Piezo will sound more natural then simulator. It is just harder to reproduce something that it is not avaliable at the signal input. Piezo takes more sound from the body then the magnetic pickup.
"The software is up to date " with Beta checked . So no fun for me today .
Yes you can :Quote
The Whammy uses MIDI Program Change commands for effect selection. Effects can be selected in either an active or bypassed state. The following illustrations show the MIDI Program Change mappings for Classic mode and Chords mode.Effects MIDI Program Change Mapping (Classic Mode)When set to Classic mode, the following illustration outlines the Program Change commands recognized by the Whammy and the corresponding effect setting and its status.
MIDI CC messages can then be used to control the Whammy Expression Pedal position.
MIDI Continuous Control Using MIDI continuous control commands, the Whammy’s Expression Pedal position can be remotely controlled. MIDI CC11 adjusts the Expression Pedal position. A value of 0 on MIDI CC11 corresponds to a toe up position and a value of 127 corresponds to a toe down position.
Whammy 4 manual : https://www.manualslib.com/man…hammy.html?page=13#manual
Sending PC (changing slots in performance mode ) from KPA will turn on/off desired function on the whammy. Just set PC number on the desired slot in performance mode in KPA .
You can use Pedals to MIDI feature to send CC11 message (morph in KPA) to controll whammy pedal position.
The overall sound is good. I think a little more pick attack is missing. Especially that a pick was used on the film.
From my experience, the acoustic guitar has quite a strong attack when using a pick.
For this purpose I used the PICK parameter from the AMP section when I tried to simulate the sound of an acoustic guitar using KPA.
I see no reason not to do it as long as you are happy with the sound you get.
In a mix, most people might not even be able to tell the difference. You're always going to have the cork sniffers that demand everything be done the old fashioned way, but if we were worried about that, we wouldn't be playing through Kempers, now would we?
If you can't tell the difference between sim and a natural acoustic in your mix, you're definitely not a cork sniffer and definitely you shouldn't deal with mixes Cheers!
Try to use some kind of MIDI monitoring software (like MIDI OX for Windows) . Then connect MIDI OUT of the Interface to KPA MIDI IN , and MIDI IN of your Interface to the KPA PASS THRU output. Now send some PC from protools and check if you can see any MIDI in messages in monitoring software.
The sound is mainly due to the bell like sound of Furch
@CPHfx I think acoustic and electric guitar piezo doesn't need acoustic simulator.
The sound from piezo sounds already sufficiently acoustic.
I think simulators are designed for electromagnetic pickups.
I watched the work on this simulator (I keep my fingers crossed for it) and tried to do the simulation myself using simulator profiling. Until I bought an acoustic guitar and a pair of stereo microphones. THIS simply has no comparison. Of course, sim is useful in stage conditions. But in the studio I'd rather use acoustics. I will post this example of my Furch guitar and NT5 rhode pair. The sim's are lacking of all the body and sting
resonances and this is unavoidable by any sim. Try tapping an electric guitar...
If you are in performance mode you have to use PC commands. Thats all. PC 0 is your first slot , PC 1 is the second one PC4 is the 5slot and PC 6 is a next performance first slot and so on.
0xC0 to 0xCF where the low nibble is the MIDI channel.
One data byte follows the status. It is the program number to change to, a number from 0 to 127.
So channel one performance 1 slot 1 will be C0 00. Performance 2 slot one will be C0 05
