I cranked it up to disastrously high tube distortion and it still resulted in silence on the impulse provided. I must be doing something wrong in the conversion, or using the impulse wrong.

*EDIT*
Additionally, using the resulting impulse with the convolver seems to make no difference, even though the tube sound component makes a clear and terrible difference when cranked up that high.
I may need a step-by-step walkthrough to do this. But will it work for Tube Saturation? Earlier comments seem to suggest that it won't work for this sort of thing.

Finally - I use the Convolver for EQ regularly, and the impulses I downloaded for EQ work and make a noticeable difference.

Is the impulse supposed to have something to start with? I opened the one linked here in Audacity and it's literally just 4 seconds of pure silence. I don't see why a Tube Sound DSP that modifies the audio based on what it is fed would do anything to that. I don't think you can add harmonics if there is no fundamental.

You are not doing anything wrong. The impulse file has a single sample at max peak, it's not pure silence. It's just that the tube simulator worked in unexpected way (to me). I thought tubes are supposed to always colorize the sound but at least that DSP does not.

Ah. Oh well, it was worth a shot. Thanks for your help. I will try out the suggested VSTs.
