Hi Scott, thought you'd find this interesting:

Maybe see if James can bring one over to try, from what I understand they claim IRs are static and the OX processing is dynamic.

It's funny they modelled the cone cry - I know how you hate it, luckily you can disable it altogether.

Not to be rude in any way, but this looks overpriced and already outdated. You can get a Suhr reactive load box for much cheaper, and IR's are virtually free. Suhr is coming out with a box like this the size of a pedal, and for less than half the price. Also, this seems to be geared towards people who use non-master volume amps - I use a master volume amp so I'd have no need for this box since I can get a good tone from my amp at a wide variety of volume levels.

I am extremely interested in this box as well. Just wondering Scott do you think it's not good because you don't think it will sound as good as the Suhr?

It does sound a bit expensive, but may be worth the price? Time will tell. The dynamic processing vs the static IR snapshot sounds very interesting and like nothing that's been seen yet in the IR world from what i can see.

It looks like a glorified attenuator, and after trying every one on the market and hating them all, I'm extremely skeptical.

However I was also skeptical of the whole IR thing until they finally got it right, and for much cheaper than this box is selling for.

I can't officially put down something I haven't heard, but it just sounds like more snake oil to me. As soon as he mentioned amp modeling in the video, I left the page.

UAD tries to fill the void they left open by refusing to accomodate a native IR loader in their own UAD software environment. I have the Apollo Twin and i love it, but UAD definetly are overpriced monopolists.
