Mesa Boogie AC.CCIRA8 Cab Clone IR+ 8 Ohm with Attenuator
There’s no substitute for your favorite MESA®, or really any, tube amplifier paired with your favorite cab in a magical sounding room or favorite environment. We also know the challenges and potential costs of capturing great tone and recreating that tone from venue to venue for those recording or in a live stage environment. Adding to the challenge, many of us prefer a variety of sounds--yet collecting multiple cabs, gear and gaining access to acoustic spaces can be a challenge both logistically and financially. Sometimes we just need the convenience of going direct for recording or even live without cabs and the need to mic up, and without those placement challenges and the inevitable bleed issues associated with ensembles in either of those situations.
Your ultimate solution Tone Tool is here now and it's all MESA in quality and sound. The CabClone™ IR PLUS Cabinet Simulator/IR Reader is ready to give you virtually limitless options, true portability, flexible control and tonal consistency from venue to venue with its wide array of popular MESA cabinets captured by a pro engineer with iconic mics in a state of the art studio, all from your pedalboard or in your gig bag. Go direct to interface or console for recording or playing live, or straight to headphones for silent practice with the new CabClone IR PLUS!
The CabCLone IR PLUS includes a built-in attenuator so you can use your favorite, or venue-appropriate, power window to achieve the perfect sound and feel to mate with your Cab Simulation of choice. A great sounding Power Attenuator added to this already comprehensive bag of tricks puts it over the top in terms of flexibility and convenience, in its class and beyond. Four power reduction settings and –0dB/Bypass offer the entire range of clamp-ability for your tube amp with the lowest setting, -16dB, including a rheostat (pot) for infinite control over volume on the way down to silent/off. The PLUS version also includes a Warning LED to alert you when a No-Load scenario is detected at the SPKR output and SPKR has accidentally been selected on the SPKR/LOAD switch and signal is present.
Along with the 16 MESA Factory supplied IR Cabinet Simulations, there is ample room to download and save a huge library of third-party IRs within the CabClone IR’s processor memory. Once accessed and viewed on your computer as a standard file directory via USB connection, IR Cab Sims can be downloaded and dragged or copied (one for each of the 16 presets), into any of the CabClone’s available locations within the two Banks of eight.
