Designed as an expansion for Overloud's revolutionary SuperCabinet IR processor, Overloud CHP Bogie Alone 2x12 AlnRuby is the Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Engl E412VSB 4x12 with Celestion Neo Creamback 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.
The cabinet is a slanted front, closed back, with solid Siberian Birch plywood construction—a standard for metal guitarists, but not only! The speaker achieves the magical tone of a traditional Creamback with half of the weight. The G12 NEO Creamback produces a great low end and punchy midrange, with a refined top end provided by a Neodimium magnet.
All captures are performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.
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
- 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 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.
