    Hey guys, been messing around making some impulses this week and figured you might like to hear the results!


    Here's all the details:

    Mesa Rectifier 4x12" Cab (bottom left speaker, cab was standing on another couple of cabs to stop floor reflections)

    Audix I5 and SM57 mic's. SM57 on the edge of the dustcap and the I5 just outside of it. Mic pre is a Mackie Onyx 800R set at 300 ohms.

    6L6 is a 6505 poweramp
    EL34 is a Windsor poweramp
    EL84 is a Orange TH30 poweramp.

    24 bit 44.1kHz

    Thanks again to Unicorn for deconvolving these for me!

    Here are the impulses!

    If you end up using them in a mix then please let me hear it. Hope they're useful to someone.

    Awesome...thanks!
    Could you post a 48Khz version so we can convert them for Axefx? ;)

    Not quite sure how I'd go about doing that to be honest. Does anyone here know if it's just a case of sample rate converting the impulse files or what?

    The conversion utility need a 48Khz wav impulse to generate an axefx compatible impulse (and 1024 samples length).
    It's a little time consuming because you have to start a 48Khz session and export the 1024smp file.... I was just joking ;)

    Use an impulse loader (you'll probably have an impulse reverb in your DAW, I'm using TL Space in Pro Tools) after your amp sim and load one of the impulse files. Make sure to swtich off the cabinet simulator in your amp sim.

    Really glad you guys are liking them! :)
