Hello and welcome to this week's article!
Today we are talking about the result of our IR creation experiments, lasted for months, done my me and my friend Dano (Thank you man!) in our rehearsals room, from which I have written my How to capture an Impulse Response from an amp article (click here to read it!).
The result is a custom Ir pack that I have called Trident IR Pack, and it's a pack consisting of 14 48khz impulses created using the power amp section of a Marshall JVM Vintage Modern head, into two cabs, a Marshall 1960 4x12 and an Orange 2x12.
The impulses were captured by two microphones, a Shure Sm57 and a Sennheiser e609, two industry standards, through Presonus Xmax preamps.
There are serveral impulses, taken from the microphones in various positions, and each one has a naming code, which must be interpreted this way:
gnb = Guitar Nerding Blog
mar jvm = Marshall JVM Head
mar412 = Marshall 4x12 cab
org212 = Orange 2x12 cab
57 = Shure sm57
e609 = Sennheiser e609
45deg = the microphone was at 45 degrees, pointing towards the center of the speaker
center = the microphone was pointing straight to the center of the speaker
dustcap = the microphone was pointing to the sweet spot between the dustcap and the cone
edge = the microphone was pointing to the edge of the cone
For best results I suggest you to blend 2 impulses with a cab loader such as Ignite Amps NadIR.
Let us hear your creations using this pack and help us spreading the word!
