    I have some far-field IRs shared by a user named gigsup on TGP, that I've been eager to try, as they are supposedly reflection-free, similar to the Jay Mitchell IRs. The IRs I've downloaded purport to be 48K, 24-bit .wav files. I have saved them on a local drive, on my laptop running Win10, 64-bit. Amplifire software and firmware are all the most recent versions. I've tried to upload this IR as part of this post, but the Atomic site is not cooperating.

    I have searched this topic on the forums previously, others have suggested power cycling the Amplifire (no luck), and making sure the IR is on a local drive/folder (it is, also no luck).

    Does anyone else have any additional info on this problem? Thanks in advance.

    It looks like the .zip file, containing the .wav file in question, did upload. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    There's nothing in the wav files, so there's nothing for the Amplifire to import.

    Jay, thank you. I did "play" the .wav files, and heard nothing. Opening other .wav files with an audio player results in an audible "click", which is presumably the input impulse, not present in these.

    I appreciate your input, thanks.

    The attached .wav file appears to have content, but Amplifire fails to load it. I tried both loading up a patch, and importing a cab into that patch, and also going to the "CABS" section and trying to load it into an empty User slot, neither works for me. Tried swapping the USB cable out, no change. The file creator says that this is a 44.1K/24 bit file. Any insight on this is appreciated.

    Jay's IR .ZIP files can be loaded directly in that format

    Slateboy, thank you, I saw this thread while researching the issue. The IRs in question are located on the local C: drive. If it matters,my laptop has a solid-state drive rather than a "classic spinning" hard drive. I don't know why that would impact the .wav file, it hasn't affected anything else on this PC in over a year, including the functioning of the Atomic Ampifire software.

    Dave_5150, I know you're also on TGP, have you by any chance tried loading any of gigsup's IRs? Any success? Thanks for any reply!

    This from Jay Mitchell on TGP, regarding this issue:

    "There's something going on with gigsup's IRs. As extracted from the zip file, the Amplifire won't load them. The message, "Failed to load user cabinet" appears. However, after opening and saving them in either cooleditpro or Room EQ Wizard, they will load.

    FYI, the processing and uploading of IRs is done by the AF editor. Although the native format is 48kHz sampling rate 24 bit, sample rate and bit depth are noncritical. The editor will convert them.

    I have no idea what glitched the AF editor with gigsup's IRs, but it's easy enough to fix."I

    I downloaded Room EQ Wizard, and imported the gigsup IRs into it, then exported them to new .WAV files. As soon as I can get to my Amplifire, I'll see whether they load now.

    If anyone else is attempting to load these IRs, I tried Jay Mitchell's approach of loading them into Room EQ Wizard (REW), then re-saving the .wav file. I got them to load into Amplifire after doing this, however when I select that cabinet, I get silence, so there's still something wrong somewhere. I don't think the problem is Amplifire, I think it's the IR files. I have let the IR creator (gigsup on TGP) know there's still some issue, this is just to let anyone else on this forum know the status of it.

    Hey Tom,

    Any luck on this front? Have you managed to get any feedback from the poster on TGP? I'm very keen to try this IR!

    Hey guys,

    Sorry I missed this thread, but yes, you can open the files in an editor of some sort and then save them out. Try these "fixed" versions of the 0 degree and 22 degree files.

    I am really enjoying the 22 matched up with the Bassman amp to get a pre-1966 Marshall vibe.
