I bring very exciting news!
We are proud to present the AIDA-X, a neural model player developed by AIDA DSP, capable of loading realistic amp (and also other gear) neural models for live playing using the Dwarf, Duo X and Duo.
A big thank you to @madmaxwell and @spunktsch for the effort and love put into AIDA DSP.
Some of you might be familiar with this technology, as it has been popularised by Neural DSP, with their Quad Cortex, as well as IK Multimedia’s ToneX.
AIDA-X is now currently in Beta and we want to invite you to test it, so we can speed up the promotion to stable. For enabling beta plugins, check this wiki article.
Using the plugin is very straight forward and, in order to use it, you need to upload some model files to your MOD device, in the Aida DSP Models section of the file manager.
Neural Modelling is very exciting in the sense that anyone here can train models and clone their gear and we have created a simple workflow to allow users accomplish this easily. Check it out: AIDA-X Modeling Guide - MOD Audio website
AIDA-X will also be released for Mac and Windows in the form of VSTs and also standalone, so that people can also use it on their desktops and notebooks. Download them here. AIDA-X Neural Model files can be loaded in any version of the plugin.
We have prepared a page dedicated to the theme. Check it out: Neural modelling - MOD Audio website
To accommodate this new exciting step, this new “Neural Modelling” category was created in the forum, together with two subcategories:
- Neural Models: for posting model files and discuss their sound
- Model training: to discuss and improve the audio capturing and training methods
I invite you all to download AIDA-X and share your opinions here. We will be constantly posting new models here in this forum section and I invite you to check them out and share your experience.
MOD is focusing efforts for the whole month of April into this topic and we want to offer users the best possible experience. We are preparing a lot of cool things for the next weeks and I promise we will have a remarkable month!
