Cab Pack Wizard
The rumor has it I'm back. To those who don't know I haven't really seen my Axe-Fx in 5 months and some time away gives you a completely different mindset. First of all I really love how single SM57 IR's sound now. I don't know if it's that I don't have my home studio setup yet and I have to mix on my headphones but I used to be a strictly Alloy IR dude but now that I have my ears literally reset I felt like some of the mixes and sounds I had created before were a little bit on the dark side to what my new neutral ears were hearing when tweaking the Axe-Fx. (It could have something to do with old strings on my guitar though.) I haven't even had the chance to dive into Q2 that much but I love the new Satriani amp sims. I haven't had to tweak a whole lot. Another difference is that for some reason all the riffs I write are a bit happier than I used to do. Maybe that's a reflection of myself or something.
When I was gone FAS released two Cab Packs of mine and I haven't had a chance to demo them for you guys a whole lot. In this clip I used "pre-Rola" IR's from Cab Pack 20: http://shop.fractalaudio.com/Cab_Pack_20_ML_Brit_4x12_Collection_p/fas-801-0020.htm
ML Brit PR55 SM57 A1 on the left side.
ML Brit PR75 SM57 B1 on the right side.
That combo really works great together. I suggest everyone with Cab Pack 20 to try it out.
So don't worry. I'm back. I'm working on 5-7 different new packs and they'll be out "not so soon" but I promise they'll be worth it. I love being back and FAS rocks!
