    Ok, i am making a preset with the Hotbrit Speaker, and i want to set a lowpass to about 14k. But i cant dial it in in the amplifire EQ PQ3. I use the lowpass 1, Even if i set it to 20 khz, there is too much reduce and the sound is too dark in comparison to my sound withpout eq.
    But at this lowpass frequency of 20khz, the eq must be off, why is it sounding dull? How can i set a normal Lowpass like in vsts ? Or isnt it possible in the af3?

    I had the opportunity to dial some presets in at gigging volume through a venue's PA recently and I found that my tones were much better with the cab roll off set as Jace suggests even with really good quality commerical IR's (ML Sound Lab). My presets generally ended up at around 7.5Khz.

    Ok so i could use my mooer radar as an eq. Something i found out, if i use the main out instead of xlr out, it seems there is less fizz? Is that right?

    They should sound the same although their output levels may be different.

    The outputs sound different? Is it possible you turned off the cab sims on your main outs? That's where I'd start.

    No no, i have several years of mixing and gear... thats not the thing, i could swear by slightly trained ears, there is a minimal difference. Hope its measurable. The output jacks have a slightly darker character and they sound better with fizz.
    Another thing i tried is to turn on cable simulation on my Wireless device. But with eqing in DAW (everything over 14 khz cut off) it sounds way better. I hoped to get that cut in the editors eq but that doesnt work for me.
