"The four presets that I´ve been most satisfied with. Made them myself with IR´s from CabIR. Mostly used Tweed cab and a Marshall cab. Really recommend these IR´s btw. Sounds terrific!"

Ich spiele über einen Line6 Helix LT, mit dessen Cabinet-Simulationen ich bislang sehr zufreiden war. Die Möglichkeit, IRs einzubinden erschien mir unnötig, zu kompliziert und zu Leistungshungrig (die DSPs betreffend). Erst als ich neulich ein Interview mit Markus Hohmann auf las, fielen bei mir so einige Groschen und ich begann, mich intensiver mit dem Thema auseinanderzusetzen. Natürlich kann man sich IRs selbst erstellen, es gibt bei intensiver Suche im Netz auch Tonnen an kostenlosem IR-Material aller Qualitätsstufen. Dennoch war mir schnell klar, dass ich nicht Stunden oder gar Tage damit zubringen wollte,überhaupt erst einmal geeignete IRs zu finden. Ich wollte nicht IRs suchen, sondern IRs einsetzen. Genau hier machte es mir das 4 Tone Starter Pack sehr einfach und dass es zum Zeitpunkt des Kaufs auch noch preisreduziert war, musste ich nicht lange überlegen.
Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn: mann oh mann - ich hätte nicht gedacht, was das Ersetzen eines Helix-internen Cabinets durch eine passende IR qualitativ ausmacht. Natürlich gilt es, sich seine persönliichen Favoriten zu suchen, denn dieses Pack bietet durch die Kombination verschiedener Mikrofone und einzelner Speaker eine Vielfalt, die einen erst einmal erschlägt. Das Experimentieren mit verschiedenen IRs macht jedenfalls viel Spaß und klanglich geht man noch einmal einen großen Schritt vorwärts. Bislang bin ich mit dem Starter Pack voll bedient, aber ich vermute, früher oder später werde ich hier zum Wiederholungstäter.

Tipp für Helix-Nutzer: auch bei relativ einfachen Setups im Helix - nutzt unbedingt beide Signalketten (A & B). Nur dann nutzt ihr auch beide DSPs des Helix. Ich binde meist am Ende von Signalkette A den Amp ein, route dann rüber zu Signalkette B und binde dort dann die IR ein. So ist die Rechenlast dann auf beide DSPs verteilt.

10 Daumen hoch!

Nach Vergleich mit div. namhaften Konkurrenzprodukten ist CabIR mein eindeutiger Favorit. Beeindruckend sind "Soundgröße" und Qualität!


    Like the Original

    At the beginning of my FractalAudio and Kemper era, I always wanted to
    choose the right amp and set it accordingly. Today I can say that with
    the right choice of the IR, the tweaking of the amps is minimized and
    the sound still does not match the original.
    CabIR helps me to reproduce the sound 100%.
    Thank you CabIR team - great work!



      Go, and get this package ... or you will miss a lot. This is by far the best "investment" I have done for years, for the price of a very good meal. Keep on doing such great IRs. I love all of them!


        Mmm Mmm good!!!

        This was my first purchase of IR's and I must say, these are very very good!
        I had loaded these in both my Line6 Helix and my Fractal AX8 and both installed without a hitch and when paired with their respective amps, I was floored at just how much better these were than the stock cabs from either unit! The "Focus" folder is indeed where all the "goodies" lie, as they're set up perfectly. These simply sound amazing to my ears and it was definetly a bonus to have found these IR's first. I think these are the standard by which I will judge other IR purchases-PERIOD!!!

        *Note that Customer Service was also outstanding. I had MANY questions about these and all my emails were followed up promptly and in detail. Markus was extremely kind and helpful!!!
        I'll be back for more


          Core 4 Tone pack is Fantastic!

          These IRs are really impressive. I have IRs from most major brands and these are my new favorites. The mixes sound very clear, well balanced and natural because there are no hyped or harsh frequencies that you need to dial out which makes building patches faster, less frustrating and better sounding overall.


            Kaufempfehlung aus tiefster Überzeugung

            Hab mir das unglaubliche SET-Angebot dieses Quartetts umgehend gekauft als ich gesehen habe dass es wieder etwas Neues gibt. Und ich muss sagen, die Perfekte Ergänzung zu den restlichen Cabs die ich schon von CabIr habe. Und tatsächlich setzt die Focus Serie Qualitativ und auch vom Handling her nochmal einen drauf.
            FAZIT: der `namhaften und grossen` Konkurrenz ist dieses Unternehmen in punkto Qualität, Kundenbetreuung und Handling um Vieles!! voraus. Und auch der Preis ist bei diesem Set unschlagbar.
            Das klingt fast wie Werbung. Fakt ist aber einfach, ich bin nur ein zufriedener Kunde der schon so gut wie alles probiert hat. Aber HIER spielt die Musik. Absolut Konkurrenzlos, das behaupte ich als tiefster Überzeugung!!


              My God!..these are just incredible!!

              I want to be really honest here about my review on these new IR's from I am not affiliated with the company at all so my opinions are purely personal and I have been playing professionally for 30+ years. I have NEVER heard anything sound like the real cabs like these do!..Seriously these are that good! I got instant Robben Ford and Larry Carlton tones with the EVs and was in Joe Walsh 'heaven' with the Tweed. I've already enthused about the VOX speakers in another review but I'll say again here how superb they sound too. The Marshall MR-AX1960 instantly gave me everything I'd expect too and much more... As I just said here at home - "..I could play these all night.."..and I probably will. A stunning collection and you MUST check them out if you are serious about guitar tone. I VERY rarely rave about things..but in this case I just have to!... When you play them you'll see (and hear) what I'm talking about.
