I use IRs for my mandolin and acoustic guitar patches. But I find that its necessary to mix the IR and the piezo pickup to keep the dynamics, and to avoid feedback that comes from too much midrange in some IRs.
I tried adding a mandolin IR to a Cab block for my mandolin patch, but couldn’t find a way to mix the IR with the dry mandolin. I can turn off the right side of the cab block, and the level control is still enabled. I thought that would do it. But turning off one side of the block doesn’t blend the dry signal, it just turns off that side of the block.
Is there a way to blend an IR with the dry signal without having to setup a parallel path just for that simple purpose? Helix has a mix control on its IR blocks - does QC have something similar and I just missed it?
If not, this is an important feature for acoustic IRs.
