The frequent issue when using an Impulse Response is that the player often doesn't get what he expects and what he might have gotten used to. An Impulse Response usually takes away the "in the room" feeling you get when cranking the volume in front of an amp and feeling the vibrations. Instead it produces the sound of an isolated cab in a different room, same as you probably would do in a recording situation.
Some people may get used to it, and others maybe already have after a lot of recording sessions, but especially to those "converting" to modelling, the transition is usually harsh. Cut frequencies, thin sound, muffled top end are some of the frequent issues they encounter with an IR.
The New Vintage Audio Custom IR Pack is created with one and only mission: Let the guitar player enjoy his tone without using a real cabinet! Using a combination of dynamic, condenser and ribbon mics, the Custom IR Pack delivers a true Live sound where other IRs fail to do so. A mix that produces a tone as close as possible to the one you get when in front of the cabinet.
Another great feature of the Custom IR Pack is that it provides two additional tube options for extra warmth and roundness. For more advanced methods and different mixing capabilities, the single mic independent captures are provided as well. Whether you're a plug n' play kind of person or want to explore all options until you get exactly where you want to, the Custom IR Pack will get you there!
NOTICE — This IR Pack was designed to best emulate the Live sound of a cab (especially when connected to a tube amp) and best works on speakers. Try this on 8" or larger monitors and prepare to be amazed. Cranking the volume up will get you to that point! In order to get a great sound at lower volume as well while maintaining the "amp in the room" feel, Studio versions of the IRs are also included!
