Shape FX in guitar distortion pedal or Guitar Amp?
Can we use Shape FX unit for guitar distortion pedal or Guitar Amp modeling?
@orange sry for reviving this thread but i am also interested if anyone has made some guitar amps (distorting, overdriven) in HISE and what the best approach would be :) Also in terms of custom frequency responses if thats not too advanced for Hise.
I would design the overdrive stage in scriptnode, put it in a oversample container and then slap a convolution reverb with cabinet IRs behind it.
@Straticah For Shape FX, you can use Hyperbolic Tangent (Tanh) mode to give similar guitar distortion fx.
You can also use
snexnodes with some filterig (I think Scriptnode way is better than Shape FX) to make a wave shaper to distort signal. (Can be used both for OD Pedals and Amps)
For the cabs, like @Christoph-Hart said, IR would be the way to go.
Guitar "distortion" tends to be a recreation of effects pedals - which use more than just tanh shaping - they tend to add an eq bump and dip (shelving) too - one pre shaper one post shaper... use different ordering and freq to get to overdrive and distortion
