Many of the mics I use are mentioned by name/model number by professional recording engineers as being used on some of the records you love. Some other cab IR file providers of impulse response (IR) files limit you to 5 or 10 mics and some of those mic choices are not even what professional engineers used on those cabs for the recordings you enjoy. Dr bonkers Soundlab® gives you up to 16 mic choices that are either pro studio standards or best kept secrets for recording bass & guitar cabinets.
Dr Bonkers Soundlab® gives you 3 good mic positions per speaker per mic choice so that you can create your own IR mixes as if you were the big time artist or producer sitting in a studio with a seasoned engineer and assistants jockeying microphones around to get your sound on your cab. 3 mic positions per speaker per microphone seems to be the magic number where most people feel there are enough sonic options but not overwhelmed by choice.
HypeReal™ Impulse Response (IR) Files:
Dr Bonkers Soundlab® is the only commercial impulse response (IR) file provider as of this writing who gives you files using a Crown® PZM™. Why is that important? A PZM allows an engineer to capture the resonance and rumble of the cabinet with no potential phase cancellation issues, unlike using a mic placed in back of the cabinet or far away placed room mics. Adding a little of this PZM mic impulse to your IR mixes goes a long way. We call IR file mixes that we provide that have the PZM mixed in as HypeReal™! One playing or mixing experience with them and you will understand why we named the files as such!
