Overloud SuperCabinet Library: CHP Brit 1960 4x12 G1280
IR Library for SuperCabinet
Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Marshall 1960A 4x12 with Rola Celestion G12-80.
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.
The cabinet is slanted front, closed back, solid Birch plywood construction, maybe the most common and used 4x12 out there, perfect tone for modern rock.
The speaker, only made for two years, this iconic 80s speaker provides lot of volume with fatter low end and mid range than other Celestion speakers of that era.
Captures are performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.
Made for SuperCabinet
This library was created for the TH-U Supercabinet that allows you to:
- Graphically browse the IRs in the library
- Blend multiple IRs and create totally custom and huge stereo guitar tones
- Compose new cabinet tones with the unique Multiband mode
- Export your crafted IRs in .wav format for use with all major hardware modelers and software IR loaders
The microphones used during the capturing session are:
- AKG C414
- Audio Technica 2035
- Audix i5
- 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.
