Im new-be here and in DSP too. Actually hardware designer (with focus to analog stuff), learned embedded-C myself and working with CorteX M0/3/4 devices.
Ive idea to make small speaker emulator device using exist IR and use it in guitar Tube AMPs for silent recording as well.
TwoNotes company have something like that as stand alone devices (Torpedo series).
Ive no idea how complex will be development himself and hope for some help here.
Thanks a lot,
