I'm mucking about with cab impulses so I downloaded a $9 pack from ownhammer, namely:

http://www.ownhammer.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=128

The file structure goes a little like this (the entire list is a little too long for a forum post):

02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 44100-Hz_Mono
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 44100-Hz_Stereo
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 48000-Hz_Mono
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 48000-Hz_Stereo
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 88200-Hz_Mono
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 88200-Hz_Stereo
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 96000-Hz_Mono
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> 96000-Hz_Stereo
02/10/2014 09:59 <DIR> Truncated

Inside each of these is folders 'Mics' and 'Mixes'. And of course inside these are the actual wav files. In 'Truncated' folder there are the above folders again (ie 44100-Hz_Mono, 44100-Hz_Stereo etc.) with 'Mics' and 'Mixes' folders inside them. It would help if I knew what these meant, there was no readme or anything with this download.

Now using NadIR impulse loader I can cycle through the files easy enough to hear the differences, but not sure which wav file to actually use. Running:

Guitar > Green rhino OD > ISP 2 > Laney IRT-Studio > XLR out to reaper > FX added - NaDIR plus impulse.

In NaDIR I only load one impulse, set to mono in the plugin. I record a second track and do the same, then pan them left and right. So I guess this narrows it down to:

44100-Hz_Mono
48000-Hz_Mono
88200-Hz_Mono
96000-Hz_Mono

The path to a single wav file goes like this:

...\Ownhammer\Wav\44100-Hz_Mono\412-GTR_MES-ST_HGE\V30-EN\Mics\OwnHammer_412_MES-ST_V30-EN_5881_57-00.wav

OR

...\Ownhammer\Wav\44100-Hz_Mono\412-GTR_MES-ST_HGE\V30-EN\Mixes\OwnHammer_412_MES-ST_V30-EN_5881_Live-HG-00.wav

So what does the frequency refer to? And then you've got 'Mics' and 'Mixes' folders to add to my confusion. And of course the 'Truncated' folder.

Other (free) IR packs I have used just have names like 'GuitarHack JJ CENTRE45-HALF.wav' or 'KillswitchEngageAsDaylightDies.wav' and there is one file, that's it. Not many options, but simple.

Any help would be very much appreciated, mainly on the terminology. I had a search around online but couldn't find anything that details the differences thoroughly enough. Thanks for any advice.

Apart from the "pdf readme" at the bottom of the page you linked.

If you're not sure what impulse to use then try everything and decide what sounds best to you for that application.

The frequency refers to the sampling frequency at which the impulse response was sampled.
Use the IR that matches the sampling frequency of the project you're working on.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.

Don't know how I missed that but thanks for pointing it out.

Ok that's good to know.
