    Some tracks using the Strymon Iridium, MXR bass preamp pedal and Roland drums directly into a Steinberg UR242 audio interface.

    There are thoroughbred racehorse farms all around my land (I only “have“ deer, rabbits, groundhogs, and assorted wildlife). The horses born this year are getting big enough to feel their oats, so to speak.

    As I sat in the driveway just before midnight with the car door open, listening to Riders in the Sky, the horses went running by in the next field. The thunder of hooves in the night was perfect accompaniment.

    Wow... If that's not cool, I don't know what is. I'd love to be back in some open land right about now.

    Nice tones. How did you set the Iridium?

    I went to the Strymon website and downloaded the Strymon Impulse Manager with the OwnHammer Impulse Collection. I think it's better than what comes stock. I used the DVRB WARM DK impulse. The only big takeaway after that was pushing it with a preamp / gain pedal (ie. Nocturne Brain). In my case, I used an Echoplex EP-101. If you're interested in the exact settings, I can post a picture.

    Well, I don't own a Strymon and probably never will(Fantastic sounds but the option overload just doesn't appeal to me). However I'm very curious after the use of IRs, hence the question.

    So... I had to look up The Pirates... never heard of them. Wasn't disappointed!
