we would like to introduce you to the new MOD Assistant and invite you for Beta testing!
This Assistant will help you replicate a guitar tone from an audio sample using an AI-generated Pedalboard. You can instantly try the suggested pedalboard on your MOD device and tweak the tone to your taste.
To check it out, have your MOD device connected, updated and go to assistant.mod.audio
Unlike with beta testing of new MOD OS versions or plugins, testing the MOD Assistant does not affect the stability of your MOD device at all. The stable 1.12.1 update is needed only to receive the pedalboard, while the magic happens in the cloud.
Currently the MOD Assistant is suggesting a chain of an Amp Sim, Reverb and Cab Sim only, with a limited set of plugins. This will be extended and improved as things progress, and your feedback is very important. Therefore pedalboards are stored anonymously with your rating.
It’s also very much appreciated, if you share your experience here in the forum. This is unknown territory with a lot to learn, for the AI as well as for us humans. Beside the public discussions on practical usage, I would also love to establish an AI experts group with those of you who happen to have a respective background. DM me if you are interested please.
The underlying research and advanced development started in March 2022. We shared and discussed some of the results with you here: AI research at MOD. I’m glad we could continue this very promising project with the reboot and have @itskais now as our AI Engineer collaborating closely with @falkTX and @jesse. Thanks for this awesome first release!
Happy holidays everyone!
