Overloud SuperCabinet Library: CHP ADD 2x12 G12S50
IR Library for SuperCabinet
Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Ada 2x12 with Celestion G12S-50 speakers.
It is an extensive and systematic capture created with 11 microphones, 8 to 16 positions each microphone and multiple Mic preamps, for more than 300 IRs globally.
In the 80s and 90s, it was really easy to find a couple of this amazing cabs on several stages. Really nice and balanced tone, a must for old guitar tone lovers.
The speaker, perfect match for the '80s Ada 2x12 cabinets, it's a 50 watt Celestion speaker with a boost on the high-mids.
Captures are performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.
Made for Supercabinet
The library is created for the TH-U SuperCabinet, which allows you to:
- Graphically browse the IRs in the library
- Blend them together
- Craft new cabinet tones with the unique Multiband mode
- Use the IR in the software
- Export the IRs in .wav, compatible with the software IR loaders and all the major hardware modelers
The microphones used during the capturing session are:
- AKG C414
- Audio Technica 2035
- Beyerdynamic M160
- Electrovoice RE20
- Neumann U87
- Royer 121
- Sennheiser MD21
- Sennheiser MD421
- Sennheiser MD441
- Shure SM7
- Shure SM57
Every microphone has been moved to 4 different horizontal position (Cap, Cap Edge, Cone and Cone Edge) and two distances, for a total of 8 IRs each.
For some microphones, the set of 8 measurements has been repeated with the microphone off axis (45 deg).
All the measurement set has been repeated twice, with two different Mic preamps: a Neve 1073 and a German preamp.
