Terms and conditions

Before proceeding with download, please consult the terms of use, and more specifically the “impulse response” section : https://overdriven.fr/overdriven/index.php/fr/about/.

These impulse response files (IRs) are free and as mentioned in the Terms of Use, no warranty of any kind is provided with these files (issues, sound problems, inability to use them, sound quality, damages of any kind…).

Cab and Mics

The cab used is a German 1*12 front-loaded and ported. While it may lack some low-end extension (below 100 HZ), it deliver a very punchy and authoritative sound. The speaker is a WGS® (Warehouse Guitar Speakers®) Veteran 30, which can be seen as an alternative to the classical Celestion® Vintage 30, with a somewhat softened treble range. Worth a try ! One of the mics used is a very affordable Superlux dynamic mic (PRA628 MKII) : give it a try, you may find it interesting.

A few notes

  • With a bass heavy amp or sim, the low-end can become boomy and muddy : in this case, lower the bass on your amp / adjust your resonance / use a HPF and eventually cut the 120 HZ frequency by 1 to 3 DB.
  • The 6L6 power amp used for IR capture tend to scoop a little bit the 250-700/800 HZ area : if you raise it by 1 to 2 or 3 DB, you may get closer to the actual sound of this speaker.
  • the SM57-2 folder is recorded with a tube preamp : the -L suffix is a different setting on this preamp, the treble area is softened a little bit on these IRs (very subtle).
