The Marshall cabinets are the definition of classic and vintage. It’s what always comes to mind associated with the word Rock and the imposing image of numerous Marshall cabinets at a live stage is a still the most amazing spectacle ever! Whether used for creating a massive wall of sound in the studio (combined with everything at 11) or recreating riffs and solos from famous rock bands, the Marshall cabinets never fail to provide with a distinct tone that has been the base for so many “british” voiced cabinets.
Not as much associated with V30 speakers in contrast to so many other cabinet manufacturers, the Marshall cabinets’ speaker variety is huge. From the classic Greenbacks to the G12K100 monsters of Rock, and from the aggressive G12T-75 to the vintage G12L, and the list goes on… forever. Despite the loaded speakers and the legendary logo on the cabinet's grill, when playing with a Marshall you just know it!
The New Vintage Audio Marshalls IR Pack includes 42 Impulse Responses from 14 different cab/speaker configurations, with two additional tube variations for each cab/speaker configuration. By using a different power amp for each IR, we decided to make two more IR files by increasing the power amp's tube volume (and accordingly decreasing the fx loop/line out solid state volume) in order to give more color for those that want that tube sparkle and creamy tone!
Some of the most popular mics were selected in order to capture the most natural sound out of each cab/speaker configuration. The M160, MD421-II, SM57 and R121 were used so that every IR sounds distinct and unique, displaying the tonal characteristics of the cab and giving the user the vibe he would get as if he was near that cab! Once again, these are plug n' play so you don't need to do anything with the mics, their position or put EQ blocks to make it sound good. Just choose the IR you like and you're good to go!
The NVA Marshalls IR Pack includes “LIVE” and “STUDIO” Impulse Responses suitable for different situations:
LIVE IRs are more suitable for live gigs, rehearsals or loud volume in general. They are designed to give a great "amp in the room" feel and will behave like a tube amp (thin at lower volumes but full and round at higher volumes).
STUDIO IRs are more suitable for recording or playing at bedroom level through nearfield speakers or headphones. They are designed to give a balanced tone that also cuts through the mix. They already have Low/High cut filters applied on them so that they are plug n' play.
The concept behind NVA IRs is to enable the player to easily choose the cabinet he likes and immediately start jamming or recording without the feeling that a real cabinet isn't there.
