Cab Pack 14: 4x12 UltraRes Collection (Version 2.0) contains 224 all-new User Cab IRs by Fractal Audio Systems and Thomas Eaton of Universal Noise Storage Studio. It includes seven speaker cabs captured with multiple individual microphones placed on carefully selected sweet spots. These IRs were created using the MIC + DI method to completely factor out the influence of the power amp used during capture. (Even a flat solid-state amp can cause several dB of deviation due to the extremely reactive load a guitar cab presents. The Mic+DI method compensates for this to produce more accurate results.)
BONUS - As a free add-in, Cab Pack 14 contains the entire contents of discontinued Cab Pack 5 Ultra-Res 4x12 Collection, with 130 IRs including ten 4x12s including one shot by Fractal Artist Chris Broderickplus some cool extras. These older IRs were captured without DI compensation, so they are less accurate, but can still produce enjoyable results. See the READ ME Cab Pack 5 file for details.
Cabs may be easily uploaded to your Axe-Fx II or AX8 using Fractal-Bot or Axe-Edit. This pack also includes the high resolution .IR files required to create your own original multi-mic UltraRes mixes in Cab-Lab. Please remember: It is illegal to share Cab Mixes containing these or any commercial IRs.
UltraRes enhances the spectral resolution of an IR without extreme CPU burden or intolerable latency. It requires an Axe-Fx II or II XL(+) running firmware 13 or newer or AX8. Our Mic+DI technique factors out the effect of the power amp used during capture for an IR which more accurately represents the sonic characteristics of the speaker itself.
