Zil 2x12 Fat LYN - Supercab IR Library
Zil 2x12 Fat LYN is the Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Zilla Custom Fatboy* 2x12 with Celestion* G12-50GL Lynchback speakers.
It is an extensive and systematic capture created with 12 microphones, 8 to 16 positions each microphone and multiple Mic preamps, for more than 300 IRs globally.
The cabinet is straight front, closed back, solid Baltic Birch plywood construction, modern tone with extra punchy low-mids. The speaker, made for George Lynch, one of the most recognizable name in the hard rock world, merge together the old Celestion legacy with modern features. The result is a great deal between vintage warmth and modern punch.
Captures are performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.

Every microphone has been moved to 4 different horizontal position (Cap, Cap Edge, Cone and Cone Edge) and two distances, for a total of 8 IRs each.
For some microphones, the set of 8 measurements has been repeated with the microphone off axis (45 deg).
All the measurement set has been repeated twice, with two different Mic preamps: a Neve* 1073 and a German preamp.
