Go Direct With Gorgeous Tone

The Strymon Iridium Amp Modeller and Impulse Response Cabinet Pedal gives you three iconic amplifiers, with a total of nine impulse response speaker cabinets that complement the tonality of the amp. Skip the hassle of lugging around or miking amps; just place the Iridium on your pedalboard and send gorgeous stereo amplifier tones, stunningly realistic cabs, and lush room ambience direct to a recording interface or PA system. With the Iridium, it’s a snap to dial in a direct tone that will truly inspire and sound great whether you are monitoring through in-ears, floor wedges, reference monitors, or studio headphones.

Strymon's Matrix Modeling process captures all the subtleties and unique tonal qualities of each of the three included amplifiers. Strymon have taken these three iconic tube amps, each with distinct characters, and mathematically modelled every aspect of their circuitry with absolute precision to deliver the response, feel, and inspiring experience of playing through the original amps at their best. The first amplifier (Round) is based on a mid-60s Fender Deluxe Reverb's Normal Channel, the second (Chime) is based on a Vox AC30TB's Brilliant Channel, and the third (Punch) is based on the Marshall 1959 Super Elite, which has a solid state rectifier. Taking the process a step further, Strymon have hot-rodded each amp to provide an extended range of tonal options beyond what was available from the original designs.

The Iridium’s speaker cabinets offer a level of realism and responsiveness unprecedented in outboard effects. The Iridium delivers full stereo 24bit 96kHz resolution for the entire 500 milliseconds of its speaker cabinet impulse responses. Before the Iridium, IRs of this resolution were only available for use within studio recording software. Iridium’s breakthrough technology means you can use the very best IRs available, bringing maximum realism to your pedalboard. The Iridium’s hybrid room reverb combines a 256 millisecond stereo impulse response with Strymon’s reverb tank algorithm for extended decay. This combination places your amp and cab in a natural sounding room (small, medium, or large), creating a space for your amp to open up and breathe.

At Riffs & Licks Music, we think the Strymon Iridium Amp Modeller and Impulse Response Cabinet Pedal combines intense research and design with technological wizardry to bring you 3 incredibly realistic amp models, with expanded functionalities not available in the originals, and three expertly matched cabs for each amp. You can even load in your own custom IRs, with studio grade resolution, via the Strymon Impulse Manager software. The Iridium is also perfect for silent practice at home, with the inclusion of a headphone jack.

Included IR Types (Contains Links to Strymon's Youtube Channel)

Round Amp Fender Deluxe Reverb. Clean, bright, and mid-scooped, with plenty of headroom. At higher Drive settings it delivers an overdriven sound unique to its architecture. Utilises Normal channel for its round tone that plays well with pedals. While preserving access to all the tones originally available with this channel, this model gives you something extra: a midrange control. With the midrange at noon, you get the original fixed-resistor value and standard tonal characteristics of the Deluxe. Turn down the midrange for a more scooped sound, or turn it up for tweed-era tones.
Chime Amp The amp that defined the guitar sound of the British Invasion - the Vox AC30TB. Uses Brilliant channel for jangly, bright, and chimey tone, providing air for subtle passages with a light touch, and bite when you want to dig in. For this amp, the Middle knob acts a Tone Cut knob, providing high-end roll-off just before the power tubes, per the original AC30 design. In addition to the full available gain of the original amp, toward the top end of the Drive knob’s range of travel, Strymon have added a frequency-shaped front end boost to tighten the low end while driving the amp further into saturation.
Punch Amp This powerful amp (Marshall Plexi 1959 Super Lead) is meatier, with higher gain than the other two amps, and has a powerful midrange response. This amp features a buttery, smooth overdrive. At higher Drive settings it will deliver all the high gain distortion and growl this amp is known for, and then some. Setting the Drive control at around 2 o’clock gets you the maximum gain the original Plexi design allowed. Beyond that, this IR model has some additional gain on tap, giving you access to custom hot-rodded Plexi high gain tones.
Bonus - More Examples Variety of guitars played through included IRs on various settings, both in isolation and in conjunction with other Strymon effects.

Different Uses For The Iridium
On Stage Use on stage if you want to play live with the exact same tones that you use at home or in the studio, or have access to multiple amp and cab setups without having to lug them on stage. Connect the Iridium directly to the house PA system. Going direct eliminates the need to mic an amp, giving sound engineers the option to send your amp and cab tone directly to a wedge or in-ear monitors.
In Studio The Iridium is perfect for the studio, providing gorgeous, iconic amp tones, stunningly realistic stereo cabinet impulse responses, and natural room ambience - essential elements for recording guitar in the studio. Place the Iridium at the end of your effects chain and capture stereo amp and cab tones direct into your recording interface. Or, place Iridium before your delays and reverbs to allow those time-based effects to occur post amp and cab. Skip the hassle of miking up your amps or having to crank them up to get the tone you desire. Instantly audition amps and cabs with the flick of a switch.
At Home You can’t always crank up an amplifier when you want to play in your living room or rehearse at home. Instead, plug your favorite set of headphones into Iridium’s headphone jack and get immersed in the sounds of iconic amps and cabs in a natural sounding room. Integrate Iridium into your pedalboard by placing at the end of your chain and experience your entire pedalboard tones directly in your headphones.
Other Iridium also allows for less common use cases. Want to use Iridium’s amplifiers but not the IR cabinets? Select Iridium’s Cab Bypass mode, and connect the output(s) to the effects return or power amp input on a guitar amplifier. Want to use Iridium’s IR cabinets but not the amps? Engage Iridium’s Amp Bypass mode, and connect a preamp or preamp pedal (such as Riverside) to Iridium’s input. Because the purpose of Iridium is to generate amp and cabinet tones, the primary use case is for direct situations. It’s not recommended to connect Iridium to a guitar amplifier.
Additional Features
Room Ambience Iridium features a hybrid room ambience design that combines 256ms impulse response captures of real rooms for realistic early reflections, with an algorithm for extended decay and modulation. This combination places your amp and cab in a natural sounding room, creating a real space for your amp to open up and breathe. In addition to controlling the amount of room ambience, you can also choose a small, medium, or large room.
Analogue JFET Front End Iridium’s input features an ultra low noise, discrete, class-A JFET preamp circuit providing up to 20dB of pure analog gain. This variable gain JFET circuit is used in concert with DSP to create the tube driven input stage of each of Iridium’s amps. With Strymon's hybrid approach you get the best of both analogue and digital worlds. The JFET stage acts as an analogue front end conditioner, providing exceptional touch sensitivity and dynamic interaction with your guitar while improving noise performance, and the incredibly powerful SHARC DSP facilitates the great level of detailed complexity and responsiveness of each tube amp’s circuitry. This combination of variable gain JFET and DSP is also how Strymon are able to deliver that hot-rodded extra gain at the top end of the Drive knob for the Chime and Punch amps.
Stereo Operation Iridium is perfect for use with stereo effects in stereo rigs. Iridium’s TS-mono/TRS-stereo input features stereo class-A JFET preamps feeding into a stereo amp driving a stereo speaker cabinet in a stereo-captured room feeding stereo outputs.
Headphone Out You can’t always crank up an amplifier when you want to play in your living room or rehearse at home. Plug your favorite set of headphones into Iridium’s headphone jack and get immersed in the sounds of iconic amps and cabs in a natural sounding room.
Presets Iridium allows you to save and recall your favorite settings. Simply dial up your favorite sound, and press and hold the Favorite switch to save these settings. Instantly recall these settings with the press of the Favorite switch, or press again to return back to the current knob and switch settings. Or, connect a MultiSwitch Plus to give you access to 4 presets right at your feet. You can also connect a MIDI device to access up to 300 presets.
MIDI Control Lurking inside your Iridium pedal is a hidden superpower: MIDI Control. Save and load presets with up to 300 preset locations. Control all knobs and switches via MIDI. Integrate Iridium into an elaborate MIDI pedalboard or use in an ultra-compact setup for easy travel. Connect Strymon's MIDI EXP Cable to the EXP/MIDI pedal jack to access these features.
Expression Connect an expression pedal in volume mode, to use as volume pedal. Can be set for pre or post amp, cab and room settings. Or, use your expression pedal to enjoy a whole new level of instantaneous, continuous control. Set as many knobs as you like for the heel position and toe position of your expression pedal, and all settings will simultaneously morph throughout the full range of the expression pedal.
