Zil 2x12 Fat LYN is the Overloud Choptones SuperCabinet 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 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.
