Just got delivered and waiting at the house. After work I plan to test drive it and see if it gives me the tones I had hoped for from the Iridium. Woot!
I wish Strymon would release a V2 Iridium with either a fourth high gain Channel or secondary functions with adjustable boosts.Well after tweaking the Boss IR-200, I got it close. Over headphones, the surround sound setting went a great way towards softening the harsh highs I heard. After getting it somewhat near where I liked it on patches for the 1959, X-Drive and Bogner…
I switched to my Ampli-Firebox MkII. It crushed the Boss. Not even close.
The Boss needs adjustable power amp settings like bias and excursion plus sag. A better IR management settings group with LF and HF roll offs. Resonance and Presence on the amps too. IMO the Ampli-Firebox and Nux Amp academy offer better tones.
Sadly. Sending it back. Shaddap @JiveTurkey

The GT-1K core is much better than the IR-200.
I wish it had X-Crunch….You realize they'd have to listen to their existing models and realize they sound like garbage compared to every other modern platform. Which will never happen so just stay full-blown ostrich and stick with the X-Crunch.
