AcmeBarGig releases iFace VST Plug-in for Redwirez Impulse Responses

23rd December 2010

AcmeBarGig has released iFace, a VST effect plug-in for Windows that will change the way you interact with your RedWirez library of Impulse Responses.

iFaceFor those of you who have the Redwirez cabinet library, you know how hard is to navigate and load cabinets. After all, there's 180,000+ individual Impulse Response files.

The task of selecting the browse button, finding the library, deciding on a cabinet, deciding on a mic... Wait. It doesn't stop there, now you have to decide on a distance. One inch, two inches, three inches? Do I want the mic on or off axis? Should it be on the cone, cap, cap edge, or the cone edge? If you get that selection wrong, you're back to square one. Click the browse button again, and keep repeating the above steps...

iFace takes care of that for you. Select a cabinet, and or a mic, and then iFace does the rest. Simply moving the controls locates and loads the correct cabinet file. It's simple and a more natural way to select a cabinet.

All you need to do is have a Redwirez cabinet installed to its default "factory" path, then tell iFace where it is. After that just select what cab and mic you want, then go about moving the controls.. Want the mic at three inches away from the cabinet? Then slide the mic three inches away from the cabinet...Want it off axis? Then select off axis...

iFace also supports the matched ambient mics of the Redwirez library. Most cabinets in the Redwirez library also contain Impulse Response files of mics placed at ambient locations throughout the studio. These are also available through the Ambient mics selection menu. Once again, these are "matched" and what they mean by matched is, the ambient mics are recordings of the cabinet you have selected, not a recording of a balloon pop or starter pistol...

iFace costs $21.12 and is available for Windows as a VST effect plug-in.
