Overloud SuperCabinet Library: Jensen Vintage Ceramic C8R
IR Library for SuperCabinet
The official Jensen IR library based on the 8" C8R, 25W, Ceramic speaker from the Vintage series.
This is a systematic capture of a Jensen C8R AlNiCo speaker, from the Vintage series, installed in two different cabinets including both the original and the remastered version, for a total of 1152 IRs:
- 1x8" Open Back Cabinet
- 1x8" Closed Back Cabinet
Developed in conjunction with a Jensen Speakers product specialist, in order to recreate the most authentic playing experience, as if you were playing an original speaker.
The C8R is a little gem in the Jensen Vintage series.
It delivers a solid compact tone that defies its size.
Extremely versatile, it was originally designed for small home and student amplifiers; but with a microphone in front, it was soon discovered as capable of transferring on tape some of the biggest tones ever.
Not by chance, the vintage Fender Champ amplifiers loaded with the C8R are treasured by many players as great studio tools.
To offer even more tonal options, we captured the C8R not only in its vintage correct open back "combo" style cabinet, but also in a custom-made closed back, to achieve even more punch in the low mids.
Also Includes the Remastered Version
This library also includes the remastered version of all the IRs.
The vintage Jensen speakers were designed mainly for clean tones.
The maximum overdrive achievable back in those days was generated by the amplifier's natural clipping and compression, and maybe by some of the earlier fuzz pedals.
Those speakers were voiced for sparkly, shimmering treble response, with a remarkable amount of energy well over 6kHz, to be coupled with the warm sounding circuits, and the thin, resonant cabinets of the era.
The IRs of the Vintage Jensen Speakers behave exactly as expected, bright, clear and detailed.
In the modern world, especially with high gain tones, naturally very rich of harmonic overtones, all this energy in the treble range may sometimes turn in an overly bright, aggressive tone.
To further expand the possible applications of these historical speakers, we decided to offer all the Vintage Jensen IRs also in a "Remastered" option, where we finely tuned the top end response to be warmer and less prominent, so to make it suitable also in more contemporary, higher gain applications.
A sort of virtual "aged tone", that offers a whole new range of sounds for every application.
All the IRs in the library are effectively doubled by the "Remastered" version, opening up new possibilities to the player, once again "beyond the original hardware".
