OwnHammer New Release: 212 VC30 BLUE MMMC!

Available now on the OwnHammer website is the 212 VC30 BLUE Massively Multi-Mic Collection!



As with all OH MMMC's, this elite library brings unmatched and unrivaled quality AND quantity, with several new twists to this classic gear combination on top of the already groundbreaking feature set. For starters, the cabinet is configured in one of three ways - fully closed back, fully open back, and semi-open back. The pair of Blues on the job this time and making their debut are from 2001, and have an incredibly rich, sparkling, chimy, and lively tonality that brings forward all manner of expressive nuance and detail without being harsh, shrill, fatiguing, or brittle. The Core Mixes section has many new, useful, and incredible sounding additions, all new M- files have been added to the Quick Start area, and an improved folder structure has been implemented that makes navigating what is one of the largest OwnHammer libraries to date a breeze. Suffice it to say, if this cab and speaker are even of remote interest to you in your musings, this is a must have with no exceptions, and can be purchased at the link below:

ownhammer.com/212-vc30-blue-mmmc

As aforementioned, the folder structure has changed just a bit this time around (and other libraries will be slowly updated to this convention as time goes on). Six years ago, OwnHammer broke the international bubble on impulse responses in a big way, and ever since the world has fully embraced the technology in this application, with an ever expanding list of hardware and software coming to market that can utilize them. It is such that duplicating files for folders named after certain platforms is an ever more incomplete list and ever larger point of library bloat, so these have been removed here in light of a new folder layout, and a web page that points where to head for the most ideal files for a known list of major platforms. As time progresses, we will be adding to this list, and if you'd like to help us expand it, please shoot us a message with some info! This list can be found in the Tutorials area under the File Formats subcategory:

ownhammer.com/tutorials/file-formats

For those who have picked up libraries with this cab and general speaker type in the past, at some point over the weekend a short comparison clip will be added to the OwnHammer Soundcloud page that briefly compares this to the other speaker versions. That said, however, if you're a fan of this type of cab and speaker, this is undoubtedly the top choice in this gear range, and you will love what you find here.

That's all for now, enjoy!

Ownhammer strikes again! Goodonya, Kevin.
Thanks very much! Glad you are digging it! :)

I just put together that little comparison I promised, here it is:


To save everyone from needing to open it up in another browser, here's the description details on which examples are which:

Guitar is a Fender Telecaster, bridge pickup.

I used Fractal's Cab Lab plugin to load the IR's. I noticed that it has some sort of output normalization function inbuilt that regulates the "loudness" of files that most loaders don't have, and allows for volume differentiation to essentially be a non-factor when doing these types of comparisons, so the difference here is frequency response based rather than the loudest one taking the cake.

I keep going back to OH cabinets. There are some other great ones out there, too, but I keep coming back. Tight, woody and chimey, just like they ought to be.
Very happy to hear that you're enjoying our IR's! :)
Thanks for the kind words!

Here's a demo of this wonderful IR pack with the AC-20 EF86 amp.
I used the 'treble' amp for the main tap part and the 'bass' amp for the rhythm and lead guitars.

That AC20 sound formidable mate, the best AC20 tone i've seen in the AXE 3, are you able to share the rhythm and lead presets used please? Obviously not the cabs but at least the amp settings, etc?

Many thanks in advance!!

Thank you!
I have to give credit to Kevin for suggesting this amp and most of the settings though.

Here are the settings for the main tapping part:

Pedal Compressor 1:
Threshold -60
Compression 5.00
Attack 2.000 ms
Release 100 ms
Auto Att/Rel ON
Look-Ahead Time 1.000 ms
Level -0.83 dB

AC-20 EF86 Treble:
Input Drive 5
Bass 6
Mid 6
Treble 7.5
High Cut 3.5
Level -12.0 dB
Bright Cap ON (235.0 pF)

For the cab portion I used the SO JS mix.

For the other parts I basically used the Bass amp with similar settings and for that lead in the bridge I added the Tone Of Kings drive.

Hope this helps! :)

I am an AC30 lover but for some reason Morgan AC20 is simply amazing and you managed to recreate a superb tone
Will try to dial these settings later on today!!!
Thanks

Let me know how you end up liking them!
And if you try the IR's, we'd love to know which files you enjoyed as well.

Funny thing is, back in the day, I was REALLY careful which amps/cabs I put Blues into, because they're only rated at something like 15-watts, if I remember right. Even though I knew "I" would be careful, I was always nervous that someone else might take it for a test drive in the rehearsal space, while I was not there, and blow them up. Often, I'd forego the Blues, to play it safe.

Now, with the AxeFx, I can load them into a Marshall or Mesa, if I want to, and let 'er rip. No speaker blowing going on, now!

It's a great time to be a guitar player, that's for sure! :)

I have a new video in which the 212 VC30 BLUE MMMC is featured (during the clean section).
It's actually my PRS MT15 amp into the Fractal LB-2 into the Axe Fx III with the OH IR's.
The 412 ZLCS V30 MMMC is featured for the heavy tones:
