    This could be the very best Creamback 65 IR available today. I certainly like it better than my Celestionplus or Ownhammer versions. It's fantastic with the Powercab and for recording direct. This one has 5 options ranging in tone. Go get it!!!

    I downloaded them, but I haven't used them yet. I look forward to trying them out.

    #5 and #2 are my favorites so far. Sounds great with the AA6 Deluxe.

    When I get a chance I'll make some clips. I just love the Creamback 65. Such a versatile speaker.

    Well, you ARE talking to musicians...

    Which creamback"? The Alnico one or the 65?

    If nothing else, Arlo should have taught you the importance of circles and arrows, with a description on the back telling what each one was.;)

    Here's one of these IR's I just used on this recording. The amp is the /13 in Helix Native. I spent no time dialing it in but I just got a UA Apollo so lately I've been wanting to record stuff just to do it without actually trying to learn the songs or anything. But the IR's do sound great.

    EDIT -- this is actually the Jensen. I thought I had switched it out but I guess not.




    THIS ONE IS WITH THE NEW CREAMBACK IR (Version 2)

    So are these IRs supposed to provide an AITR sound like the speaker models in the Powercabs, or are they IRs in the standard sense?

    Kudos on covering “I’d Never The Place Of Your Man”.... one of my favorite Prince tunes. Tones sound good too.

    IR's in the standard sense except they are mainly 1x12 cabs that will work excellent with the PC.

    Prince....that's too funny! I just thought it was a Jerry Garcia Band/Grateful Dead tune I hadn't heard before!

    @weshunter - you just can't escape your influences. :D

    Too funny, I didn't know the song either. Played it for my wife and she started singing the chorus right away. She's a Prince fan. Really good job on the redo. She played the original for me and your interpretation was very tasteful. Thanks for posting! @weshunter

    I'm going to jump in here with a question too.

    But, if I have a Helix with a PC+, for example, there's no sonic benefit to loading these IRs into Helix vs. in the PC+, right? Only some conservation of DSP power in the Helix if loaded into the PC+, but no other benefit?

    I’m glad he posted an actual link because I had zero clue what your thread was about.

    It was explained clearly in post #1.
    Nevertheless, Whatever it takes. I don't mind a link.

    No sonic benifit to speak of but by loading in the Helix you would gain routing option to apply separate eq to multiple outputs if needed.

    Note these IRS were enhanced while actually playing them through the Powercab to create a similar in the room feel as the original speaker. Some are 1x12 some are 4x12, some of the upcoming will be 2x12 though they are enhanced so this isn't really important.

    For instance, the latest Creamback m65 started with 4 separate IRs that were processed with various methods then mixed and processed again.

    Maybe this is too much info but the bottom line is they sound amazing :) both when used with the Powercab and when used as any other IR. One doesn't need a Powercab to use these with ease.
