    I have an Eleven rack which I'm trying to decide whether to keep or sell. Now running through the Firebox as an IR loader using either the FX send or out to amplifier jack. This improves the Eleven rack somewhat. However if all 11R blocks are bypassed so that I can use the Firebox in the signal chain there's a high pitched whine that doesn't stop when 11R levels are dropped. I'm leaning towards just using the 11r as bass amp with an Atomic Reactor cab for the odd bass student. What's the best way to route signal for IR loading?
    Thank you.

    Peter,
    Is the goal to use all of the amp models and FX in the 11R, but bypass the CAB and instead use ONLY the CAB IR from the AmpliFirebox?
    Is this for playing at home/live performance or using the 11R as an audio interface to record?
    If for recording, do you just want to use the 11R as an audio interface to record only the sounds from the AmpliFirebox?

    Hi Jace, the aim was to try get some usable sounds out of the Eleven Rack by using amp blocks bypassing the cabs and using the FB as the IR Loader. This is done at home in my teaching studio for guitar students. The 11R is solely for student use. As it stands, I've listed the 11R for sale. I tried to order an Amplifire 6 from your online store this morning but it doesn't allow for shipping to Australia? An FX Loop would be handy as I like to run a TC Flashback after the Fire-Box but hear a high pitched whine when using a mono lead to connect to the Laney LFR-112. I've tried both units provided by Independent Music but the whine is there unless using the XLR out. Any chance of shipping an Amplifire 6 to Brisbane. There are none available locally. Thank you.

    Hi Jace not to worry. I picked up an Amplifire 3 today, which sounds great. The 11R will be gifted to my brother.
