Having unmatched quality, the Matchless cabinets are the synonym for boutique design and rich tone. Point-to-Point hand wired in USA, their dreamy vintage looks and warm sensation has made them one of the lead amp and cabinet manufacturers with numerous famous musicians and virtuosos making them their first choice. Moreover, the combination with the power amp of the famous Dumble Overdrive Special gives a dripping creamy result.
A Matchless cabinet is usually (and fairly) known for its ability to provide a perfect clean or edge of breakup tone and a beautiful nostalgic feeling in the atmosphere. And the Creambacks (G12H75 and G12M65) seem the perfect speakers to achieve that. While the 1x12 and 2x12 cabs are more widespread, the 4x12 cab on the other hand offers a combination of the two creamback speakers for an even fuller frequency spectrum that can handle both clean and overdriven tones.
The New Vintage Audio Match IR Pack includes 12 Impulse Responses from 4 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 Match 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.
