you might wanna try an Antress combo - the Modern Channel (acoustic guitar preset) and Modern Painter (try various settings for a 'duller' sound), combined with a 'highly damped room' IR.*

* check the last pack here for the 'highly damped large room' which is pretty useful imo:

Gave it a try, liqih. It's not bad, and saves farting around when it's just being used for scratch stuff. But ultimately it's the same result as the combinations I usually use-- good enough when you don't feel like miking up the acoustic for a scratch track, but when compared to an actual acoustic guitar the differences are quite clear.

thanks, it's just the comb filter based effect I meant, made up in ten minutes, yes it's a raw boosting/equalization which just gives the idea of an acoustic guitar,

anyway as I asked previously I never heard a convincing hardware FX either, IMHO the main problem is the feedback of the board to the strings

So Max? maybe it was so terrible that you don't have the courage to tell me? LOL
Actually I tried it again today and it seems better than yesterday, <grin>

xoxos you mean: electric guitar input >>> acoustic bass output??!! Oh, that's hard, <grin>
looking forward to your implementation

of course I was kidding about sounding better today, it sounded like crap to my ears, <grin>
so I worked two hours on it and you have a new version,

comments are very welcome!

[file updated one hour later, "Diff" parameter added]

"OverDrive" is also the input gain
"Gain" is the gain of the resonance

BTW I tried it only with samples as my electric guitar is a jazz semiacoustic and I wanted to optimize the effect for a solid body sound, so it would be nice if some of you could post a short mp3 example of what you get with your guitar thru this effect.

a little note: I also tried this with my HarpTime synth
and I think I will add the fx to it, <grin>

ciao

:D

tried deepboard with a plucked string model, had the right effect.

chris kerry makes these 8/12/16 tap delay modules with inline biquads coded in asm.. i've been meaning to wrap them up for stuff like this for a while.

thanks, <grin>

yes some kind of "reverb" is needed so I updated DeepBoard now,

I'd like to hear one made with those tap delay modules

biquad coefficients can be applied to the module if you have any good ones. i have a fretless bass so i'll be doing more work on acoustic bass module sometime :)

Luigi, I works surprisingly good - the result I got surely sounds more like acoustic than electric guitar - however there are two problems.

- it amplifies some lower frequencies drastically

- it is too sensitive towards volume-spikes and amplifies them as well


but great work anyway! :hail: :-D
