A selected collection of some of the most popular Guitar Cabinets used for various metal genres, made by New Vintage Audio
Extreme situations require extreme measures... And nothing more extreme than the New Vintage Audio Metal IR Pack! Ideal for chugging, shredding and playing sick riffs, the Metal IR Pack will get you from classic old school heavy metal, to ear-piercing thrash and finally to modern mayhem! And what is even better with the Metal IR Pack is that all the included impulse responses are PLUG N’ PLAY. This means there’s no need for "noodling around", spending hours searching, forcefully combining mics or going down the IR rabbit hole anymore in order to get that perfect HEAVY tone.
The New Vintage Audio Metal IR Pack includes 66 Impulse Responses from 22 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 feeling and roaring GRIT!
Some of the most popular mics were selected in order to capture the most natural sound out of each cab/speaker configuration and make it ideal for Metal! The 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 Metal 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.
