Designed as an expansion for Overloud's revolutionary SuperCabinet IR processor, Overloud Jensen Blackbird 10 100 SuperCabinet IR Library is a systematic capture of a Jensen Blackbird 100W AlNiCo speaker from the Jet Series installed in two different enclosures:
- a 1x10" Open Back cabinet
- a 2x10" Open Back cabinet
Totalling 576 IRs and developed in conjunction with a Jensen Speakers product specialist, this library recreates the most authentic playing experience, as if you were playing an original speaker.
The Blackbird 10 offers the same power handling of its 12” sibling and proves to have a quite similar tonal approach. Its exceptional detail, treble resolution, and powerful basses make the Blackbird 10 an excellent choice for the more discerning players looking for the unique sonic signature of 2x10 and 4x10 configuration and high-end super compact 1x10 combo amps.
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

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.
All measurement sets have been repeated for each one of the cabinets in the library.
All IRs have been phase aligned and they can be blended without phase cancellations.
