    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    Well, the thing is with the ML stuff I didn't really have to compromise, but in the past I would say I have definitely chosen IRs for their sound over the feel, which makes it less nice for tracking, but ultimately the sound is what matters. With that said, it's nice to have a collection that...

    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    1- I use mostly Drop C and AGCFAD 2- I just take a break from music and do literally anything else, or take a shower, the white noise of a shower always helps for some reason... 3- I'm not sure I understand this one haha.

    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    I find that a lot of IRs tend to lack low end resonance, or if they have it, it sounds a bit cheap, and has no real weight to it, almost like it was a post-eq rather than the character of the cab/mic combination. The high end is even trickier, you either get very dull captures, or ones with so...

    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    I have a bunch of amps, though I mainly use those for reamping. Everything comes out of my monitors, and between the fact that I know them well and my room being treated, I know I can trust what I am hearing. Even if I was using real amps, they would be in a live room and I would still be...

    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    The IR captures were so well done, and so much what I would sort of expect from that cab and specific mic that I could sort of mix them the way I would like to in real life. It really just came down to the subtleties of each capture/speaker, and what frequencies would best complement each...

    Misha Mansoor / ML Labs Cab Pack Q&A

    Yeah I have been using these for all my demos (which unfortunately you can't hear right now) but I did use cab pack 8 for the Sepiks Prime cover, and the upcoming Haunted Shores material will feature these cabs heavily!

    Misha Mansoor Presets and mini-review

    Maybe once we are done using it as our live tone. It's a good IR but there are honestly tons of great IRs especially some of the ones included in these latest updates. The main purpose of making our own IR was really just so we could have something unique, not because we necessarily could do a...

    New Periphery Album

    Hey dude, that's a good attempt, but unfortunately if you tone matched from that section in masamune, you matched a part which we specifically filtered a bit for effect (lofi'd it a little to make it kick in harder when it does) and that might explain the lack of low end on the patch haha.

    Bulb - 2 short clips with Axefx II 2.00c
