Being the voice for countless musicians and the "trademark" for a british tone from low to medium gain, the Vox cabinets have a classic midrange tone that is easily distinguished among other guitar cabinets. The vintage design both in appearance and sound, makes them spotted from miles away whether with a combo amp or an extension cabinet.
The Vox cabinets were made widely known having mainly the Greenback speaker installed. Being around more that 60 years though, they have evolved both in using other Celestion speakers (with the Alnico Blue being the most common choice) but also produce their own Vox speakers maintaining that Classic Vox sound.
The New Vintage Audio Voxx IR Pack includes 15 Impulse Responses from 5 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 Voxx 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.
