When you're looking to augment your sound with the tone-shaping capabilities of some of the world's most well-loved speaker cabinets, then the BIGBox series is for you. Using an uncompromising signal chain, we've set out to capture the magic of giant wooden boxes, with strategically placed holes, stuffed with insanely loud cone-shaped bits of mayhem, and glued together with the blood, sweat and tears of three generations of rock gods, grunts, and goram contenders... or something to that effect.
Features
  • Cabs sampled with up to 14 industry-standard microphones each with their own sound
  • Up to 8 mic positions to dial in the right tone for your amp
  • 9 different mic distances for different amounts of proximity effect, cabinet and room sound
  • 500 or more IRs per cabinet* so you'll find the perfect match for your sound
  • Edited for better phase coherence allowing you to more easily mix multiple IRs
  • Clean, uncompromising signal chain that won't add undesirable color to your sound
  • Cabs powered with Bryston 4B, known for flat freq. response, ample power, low distortion
  • Recorded with Prism Sound Orpheus converters for top quality A/D and D/A conversion
  • Sampled with a Neve 1073 and/or a pair of Neve 1084s, two of the most highly regarded preamps for recording guitar, or anything else for that matter
  • Compatible with a wide range of recording software and convolution plug-ins (see Compatible Software) including Axe-Fx I & II ready sysex files**
* Take a look at the IR Matrix for each speaker cab for a complete listing of captured impulse responses for that cabinet.

**Axe-Fx I sysex files are truncated to 1024 samples to conform to its cabinet IR size limits, thus removing room reflections. Axe-Fx II files are truncated to 2048.

Mic Positions

We mic each sampled speaker from 8 positions. The primary positions include: Cap center, Cap 45° off axis, Cap edge, Cap edge 45° off axis, Cone middle, and Cone edge. Then we do a Room mic and a Back of the Cabinet mic.

The captured sound is brightest (contains the most high frequency content) at the "Cap center" position and gets progressively darker (more lows and less highs) as you move the mic towards the edge of the cone. Depending on the position and the mic distance, the mic will pick up different aspects of the other speakers and the cabinet.

Each cabinet is sampled with a matched pair of Neumann KM84s and a pair of TC30s in an XY configuration. These are labeled RoomL and RoomR. We also use a KM84 or TC30 to sample the back of the cabinet. We reverse the phase of this sample. It picks up mostly low end and may be useful when blended with a another mic signal.

Not every mic was sampled in every position and at every distance so check the cabinet's IR Matrix for a comprehensive listing.

Mic Distances

We sampled each speaker and microphone combination at up to 10 distances:  0", 0.5", 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", 6", 12", and Room. As the mic gets further from the speaker, the captured sound tends to get progressively brighter as the low-end drops off. You get more ambient room sound and you pick up more from the other speakers and the different aspects of the cabinet resonance the further away you place the mic. The 0" starting position is right on the grill, but not touching it, or parallel to the baffle in the case of cabs without grills or grill-cloth.

Mesa Rectifier 4x12 • Vintage 30s • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of an oversized Mesa Rectifier cabinet loaded with four Celestion Vintage 30s.

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 582 impulse responses each at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Bogner Uberkab • Celestion Vintage 30s • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Bogner Uberkab. Vintage 30s never sounded so good... definition without sounding raspy. The Uberkab is loaded with both Celestion G12T-75s and Vintage 30s. So, because we're close mic'ing, we had to treat it as three cabs in one. We mic'ed the T-75s and tagged them with "Uberkab-T75". We mic'ed the Vintage 30s and tagged them with "Uberkab-V30". Then to get the vibe of both speakers in one IR, we did a 50/50 mix of both speakers and labeled them "Uberkab-T75V30". This set features the Vintage 30s and includes the 50/50 mix IRs, but not the close-mic'ed T-75s. They do bleed through, though. More so, the further away you put the mic.

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 1373 impulse responses each at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Soldano 412B • Eminence Legend V12s • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Soldano 412B loaded with four Eminence Legend V12s. Ours is purple. Which most would agree, makes it more awesome. A lot more high-end than the S12X version. It's a front-loaded cab with lots o' resonance so you may need to back the mics off a bit more than usual.

Soldano 412B • Eminence S12Xs • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Soldano 412B loaded with four Eminence-made S12Xs. S12Xs were stock in the older cabs. Give this one a little more distance than you might normally, the cab resonance is pronounced up close and the speakers have a notch in the upper mids between 4-8KHz. Nice for taming fizzy guitars.

Supro Thunderbolt S6420 • Jensen 15" • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Supro Thunderbolt S6420 cabinet with the original 15" Jensen speaker. Decent low-end for a small, open-backed cabinet, a boost around 550Hz that gives it some mid-range "honk", and crunchy upper-mids.

Bass Cabinets


Ampeg SVT 810 • SVT 10s • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of an SVT 810 with stock SVT 10" speakers (86-032-01). We're pretty sure the SPL coming off this monster ripped a hole in the space-time continuum. Maybe not, but it certainly pushed lunch at Pinche Taqueria through the ol' pipes in record time.

Hartke 4.5XL • Hartke Aluminum 10s • Cabinet IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Hartke 4.5XL with aluminum Hartke 10" speakers and a center-mounted 5" driver. The aluminum drivers give you a bright, punchy sound. We sampled the 10" speakers and the 5" high-end driver independently, so you can blend to taste.

Speakerbox

With the Speakerbox series we set out to capture the essential character of some legendary speaker and mic combinations with just a dash of color. To that end, we housed our speakers in a solid mahogany, open-backed cabinet. The cab's lightweight, resonant shell is designed to fill a room with 3 dimensional, lively tone rather than box it in and project it forward.


Speakerbox • Celestion Blue 12" • IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Celestion AlNiCo Blue 12". The Celestion website describes this speaker as having a "glorious dampened attack, warm lows, mellow upper-mids and brilliant belllike top-end." Guitar Player magazine has this to say about it: "The Blue is far and away the most tonally sophisticated -- as well as the loudest -- speaker in this roundup. Its chime and midrange complexity are truly magical, and it never sounded harsh or brittle. The Blue handles sparkling rhythms and milkshake-thick lead tones with equal poise, and is an unbelievably dynamic and multi-dimensional speaker that sounds great with any amp." We sampled this one in our usual, acoustically treated live room.

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 566 impulse responses at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Speakerbox • Weber Blue 12" • IR Library:
Impulse responses of a Weber Blue Dog 12". The Weber Speaker website describes this speaker as "aggressive, bright, with a strong midrange crang." Guitar Player magazine has this to say about it: "The Weber Blue Dog actually sounds creamier than the Celestion Blue that it's based on. At low volumes, the Blue Dog has an airy top-end (especially with single-coils) and sounds buttery smooth, yet distinct, when pushed. It lacks the immediate attack and midrange "crang" of the Celestion Blue, but if you're looking for a different sort of British sweetness, the [Blue Dog] is a superb choice."

Because we had already sampled a nice Celestion Blue, we wanted to do something a little different with this one, so we sampled it in a large, bright room, with high ceilings, corner bass trapping, a couple of funky blue velvet couches, and side wall diffusors. It makes for a "roomier" sound than our other collections.

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 450 impulse responses at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Speakerbox • Celestion G12H30 12" • IR Library:
Impulse responses of a 30 watt Celestion G12H. The Celestion website describes this speaker as having "a heavier magnet than the G12M, this faithful recreation captures the unmistakable mojo of late 60s rock guitar tones... It exhibits a pleasing, strong low-end, complex and buttery mid-range and a finely detailed top-end, the G12H is excellent for cranking out huge, dark power chords, with smooth and rich bridge pickup tones and flutey neck pickup tones"

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 566 impulse responses at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Speakerbox • EVM12L 200-watt 12" • IR Library:
Impulse responses of a 200 watt Electro-Voice EVM12L. Electro-Voice says, "the EVM12L is a full range speaker with a frequency response specially tailored to cut through the thickest mixes"... and we believe them. Nice low end, too.

Zipped archive available for immediate download contains 566 impulse responses at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96Khz sampling rates, 16/24 bit, and Axe-Fx ready sysex files. See IR Matrix.

Money-back Guarantee... that's right... yup... we're that confident

Yeah, it may sound like a cheesy infomercial pitch, but we think offering a money-back guarantee on our IRs is better than offering a crippled demo, primarily because one of the benefits of the our IR library, beside the quality, is the sheer number of choices you have to dial in the sound you want. A scaled back demo simply would not reflect that. So, if you buy one of our libraries and try them for up to 14 days and don't want to use them any more, then delete them and shoot us an email (the address is on the Support page) with your paypal receipt (we have to have that for record keeping purposes) and we will give you a full refund. We encourage you to use the Cabinet Preview feature to get a good idea of how the cabinets will sound.


Upcoming Cabinets

No BIGBox cabs in the hopper, at the moment. Sign up for updates and we'll email you info about upcoming cabinets and works in progress.


Compatible Software

We go through a great deal of trouble making sure our impulses work efficiently with existing convolution plugins, while still maintaining a natural reverb tail. Our IRs should work with any convolution software that can load 3rd party impulses in WAV format, but the following are known to work: If you want to monitor the wet (convolved) guitar signal in "real time" (low latency), your best bets are: LeCab, LAConvolver, Revalver, SIR II, or Boogex. For more tips on using our impulses, check out our Tutorials section.
