NadIR is a zero latency, dual Impulse Response (IR) convolver, designed to be used as a cabinet simulator for guitar and bass (pre)amplifiers.

It has been designed to perform pristine quality convolution in real time, while being light on the CPU and easy to use, providing advanced built-in filters and delay controls to let guitarists and bassists shape their tone with ease, without the need to be professional audio engineers.
NadIR is meant to be used as a cabinet simulator for live playing and jamming, tracking or mixing inside hosts capable of VST or AU Plug-Ins support.
  • Zero Latency.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Three routing modes: Mono, Dual Mono and Stereo.
  • Selectable quality control for max IR length (up to 0.185 seconds).
  • Automatic high-quality resampling for IRs with different sampling rates.
  • High-quality analog shaped filters.
  • Selectable delay for phase interactions between loaded IRs.
  • Continuous morphing control between loaded IRs.
  • Global input level and single IR level controls.
  • Fully automatable controls.

Love this loader! I'm using a free collection of IR's (Seacow collections). Before this was using Reaper's Reaverb plug-in to load the IR file. Prefer a plug-in that is made to load IR's. If you were confused when you installed this plug-in and assumed you would get a collection of cab IR's, go google Seacow cabs. Huge free collection to use with this plug-in. THanks Ignite! Well done.

I love all these "cab sims" where you have to go and find a cab sim to insert into the cab sim...You Postmillennial flat-earthers are ALRIGHT with me; I don't care what anybody says...

You have to point to a folder of IR files on the plugin.

Great VST. Priceless not much of an exageration.

In my Opinion this is the best IR Loader! You can load any response *.wav files, and get any time an other sound out! With good cap response *.wav files you get very realistic "Amp Sound!!!" Wonderful and very good for stereo guitars on a stereo bus, load two diffrent respond files to get little bit diffrent sound between the two guitars on a stereo bus!

I can’t get it to work, I’m using a lepou amp sim in fl studio. When the cab is being bypassed, the signal comes through perfectly. But as soon as I turn it on, nothing even comes through. I’m a little confused on what to do with the file option in the menu, can explain to me how to set it up?

Works great for me, but you have to make sure quality is set to Extreme (I haven't had any CPU problems though with a Haswell i5 and multiple tracks with this)

I wish I could get this to work, but I can't! I run Ableton Live 9 and it's not cooperating.

Doesn't work. Tried opening it several times and every time after exiting out of the box, Cubase shuts down. Ridiculous.

Very Useful! I can do some experiment with some IR that modded by me and test it with this plugin. Amazing!

This is really good at any price. Solid and dependable and sounds better (in my opinion) than anything currently in the market. Brilliant work.
