BLANKENSHIP GOLD ALNICO 2x12 - XR IR PACK

$19.99Price

This pack from our XR IR COLLECTION is based on our Blankenship™ Carry On 2x12 combo loaded with Gold Alnico speakers [16 ohm]. It includes 9 different dynamic, condenser, tube, and ribbon microphones with multiple configurations, blends, and processing options to give you raw and studio-refined tones for the ultimate IR experience.

This XR IR pack is based on our Blankenship™ Carry On 2x12 combo loaded with Gold Alnico speakers [16 ohm]. The amp described as "Needing no EQ" using these very 3D sounding Gold Alnico's that feel like they are jumping out at you. While there is never one perfect speaker, they are called Gold for a reason. This pack includes 9 different dynamic, condenser, tube, and ribbon microphones in 4 different positions across the speaker in single-mic and multi-mic blend configurations. Each single-mic IR includes 3 variations: Unaltered Mic, Enhanced, and Top Boost giving you raw and studio refined tonal options for the ultimate IR experience.

 

This IR pack is a part of our new XR IR Collection [XR = extreme realism], which is the result of countless hours of IR experimentation, development, and A/B testing. The XR Collection is our latest and most accurate line of impulse responses that we have ever created. When compared to the real mic’d cab using the same amp, it is difficult to discern any difference. We are proud to say these IRs deliver the truest representation of a cab in tone, feel, breakup quality, and harmonic information when pushed. Unlike our previous tone-matched IRs, these IRs are universal and can be used on any platform that can load IRs and are not dependent on using specific amp settings to sound correct. A Tone Factor Starters folder with 10 hand-selected IRs from the pack is included to help you get started quickly.
