Overloud SuperCabinet Library: Zil 2x12 Fat LYN
IR Library for SuperCabinet
Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Zilla Custom Fatboy 2x12 with Celestion G12-50GL Lynchback speakers.
Zil 2x12 Fat LYN is an extensive and systematic capture created with 12 microphones, 8 to 16 positions for each microphone, and multiple Mic preamps, for a total of over 300 IRs.
The cabinet has a straight front, closed-back, solid Baltic Birch plywood construction, and produces a modern tone with extra punchy low-mids. The speaker was made for George Lynch, one of the most recognizable names in the hard rock world. Its construction merges the old Celestion legacy with modern features, resulting in a tone that lies between vintage warmth and modern punch.
The captures were performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.
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 was moved to four different horizontal positions (Cap, Cap Edge, Cone, and Cone Edge) and two distances, for a total of eight IRs each.
For some microphones, the set of eight measurements was repeated with the microphone off-axis (45 deg).
All of the measurement sets were repeated twice with two different Mic preamps: a Neve 1073 and a German preamp.
