mixIR³ 45XL-XL10 cabinet module

What’s New in the Anniversary Edition

  • Longer. Now 500ms for better bass definition.
  • Smoother. Advanced processing to remove unwanted acoustic artifacts.
  • Cleaner. Less noise, better SNR.
  • Easier. Presets for commonly used studio techniques.
  • Mix ready. IRs sit better in the mix.

Why Redwirez

Each BIGbox cabinet is sampled in systematic way resulting in a "grid" of IRs with small, linear changes between them. Because the samples are predictable you can quickly zero-in on the perfect sound.

You can use the same micing techniques used in a studio because each library is like a real cab. Let's say that U47 FET a little too boomy, then move it back by an inch or two.

A good bass guitar tone is built with many moving parts. Your setup is unique. Don't settle for someone else's idea of good tone. Hone your own.

What You Get

The collection contains: IRs and mixIR³ IR modules. IRs are packaged as WAV audio files in a variety of sample rates. They can be loaded into most any convolution software or hardware.

MixIR³ IR modules are for use with Redwirez mixIR³ only. Each module contains all IRs for a single cabinet in one file.  Loading up an IR module in the mixIR³ brings up a point-and-click visual interface for selecting mics and mic position. Modules also provide controls for tweaking the cabinet's impedance curve and bass response.

The mixIR³ plug-in is not included with the BIGbox Bass library.
