This section of the tutorials will provide information on the files and impulse response uploading procedures for Fractal Audio Systems hardware and software.
File Type Overview
The files contained in the "Fractal.zip" are a copy/paste of the 48 kHz, 200 ms, non-minimum phase transformed files from the Wav directory. These files work best with Fractal's Cab Lab software, as it allows you to choose whether you leave the files in their raw time of flight - to which is unified and identical for all currently sold OwnHammer libraries containing raw, non-minimum phase transformed files - or use the proprietary minimum phase transformation function in that software when mixing and/or converting files. OwnHammer does not recommend ever using the "Auto Trim" option with OwnHammer IR's.
As of version 3.12.0 of Axe-Edit and 1.7.0 of AX8-Edit, free Fractal editor companion software now allows for the import of .wav files, with all necessary conversion to proprietary formats being done behind the scenes and transparent to the user. As such, it may be of interest to those without Cab Lab who want to mix the files with stock cabs via parallel cab blocks to have minimum phase transformed .wav files to import so that there are no phase issues that need to be corrected. If this is the case, simply also download the Atomic.zip, Line6.zip, or Two-Notes.zip, as these contain 48 kHz, 200 ms, minimum phase transformed files copied and pasted from the Wav directory.
