    New to Amplifire (longtime Fractal user), having a hard time dealing with the buzzing bees in the Friedman models in the Amplifire (6). The Fender models are top notch, but the Friedmans are giving me fits. Anyone have any suggestions on taming them, or perhaps presets to share? TIA

    ... while paying close attention to Jace's tips for rolling off the top and bottom.

    I did try the rolloff- I use IRs, go straight into the board (IEM/no cabs on stage bands). Tried the factory IRs, loaded some OH wavs (unmolested) as well as some custom blends I made. I'll try some of these presets into one of my FRFRs at home and see how they go, thanks for the links.

    I found Jay Mitchell's suggestion to remedy this quite helpful & I use this procedure on most of my higher gain presets. This is a screenshot I'd saved from a previous post on this forum which I unfortunately don't have a link to.

    I had this happen to me early on and in the CAB block had to set the Cabinet Output setting to ‘BOTH OUTPUTS’. Hope this helps

    Hmm... That seems to be very interesting. I'll try it later today.

    Thanks!

    That has a lot more to do with the stock ("matched") cab sim IRs than with the amp modeling. If it were me, I'd first look for an IR that sounds like an actual Marshall cab.

    With my IRs, I have never found it necessary to "de-buzz" any of the AF's amp sims. In the event you prefer spectral surgery to auditioning IRs, here's a link to my method: http://atomicamps.com/forum/index.php?posts/16644/.

    Thanks, everyone. As noted in my original post I do audition IRs, just wasn't having any success... until today, when I found an old folder of custom mixed IRs I had completely forgotten about. Found one that did the trick extremely well.

    Agree. But your IR's aren't easy to come by. I've had numerous people ask for them but have upheld our agreement from when you sent them. "C" is still my primary IR for clean tones, and your M is still one of my favorites. I'd love to try the ones you actually use...

    Edit to note: No high OR low rolloffs are needed with your cabs. The first thing I do when I pop one of your cabs in as remove the high cut in the cab block, and the low cut in the "pre" block.
