York Audio Impulse Responses

When searching for the best guitar tone it’s important to skip the mess and work with the best. York Audio Impulse Responses were created by seasoned live performer and studio guitarist Justin York. Some of the household names Justin has shared the stage with are Katy Perry and Paramore. You might be thinking, “well if Justin is seasoned….is he relevant?” Relevant is a nice way to say Old. No no, he is still a young buck…Justin is only seasoned because he began playing for Grammy Award Winning artists before he even had his drivers license. I even remember people in Nashville talking about wanting the “Justin York Guitar Tone.” Justin’s work ethic is the reason York Audio is able to deliver Premium Impulse Responses.

What is an Impulse Response

An impulse response (or IR) is a sonic measurement of the sound of a speaker, room or microphone in relation to a sound source. In guitar terms, this is usually your amp.

After your guitar itself and the dialed-in tone of your amp, there’s a lot more that can affect your sound. The speaker type, the space you’re in, the microphone you’re using, the microphone’s preamp or position – the list goes on.

The idea of an impulse response is to capture all of that information in one go, so you can instantly recall that setting. This means that wherever you are, you can retain your preferred tone, right down to the detail of your favorite mic placement and room sound. On stage, in the studio, jamming with friends – sorted.
