Mad-in-Italy MK50 + SL Guitar EQ

Mad-in-Italy MK50 + SL Guitar EQ is the TH-U expansion library seeking to recreate the sound of a MadCat MK50*, an Italian 50W head with 3xECC83 triodes, 2xEL84 power tubes and Mercury Magnetics* transformers. The pack includes:

  • 38 rigs captured with multiple dynamics and channel settings
  • the unique SL Guitar EQ effect, inspired to a 4K Console eq
  • A bank with 22 ready-to-mix presets
  • A bank with 9 ready-to-play presets

The head can deliver a wide variety of tones by combining and mixing its four inputs (Normal, Bright, High and Low) and separately balancing the level of the Normal and Bright channels.

SL Guitar EQ

The Mad-in-Italy MK50 adds a brand new two-bands eq into TH-U. The effect is specifically designed for the guitar tone: inspired to the 4K Console EQ, it is shaped to add thickness and presence while preserving the natural feel of the amplifier.

Ready-to-mix, Ready-to-play

Created by Caparezza's engineer Antonio Porcelli, the library includes XX presets divided by application and pickup type: Strat, Les Paul and Tele:

  • ready-to-mix (22): these presets provide tones which are shaped for the mix, with enhanced presence, tightened low-end and no ambience.
  • ready-to-play (9): these presets offer the best experience if you are practicing and want to have the same feeling of the real amp, or if you are soloing or playing along a backing track.

Studio Rigs and Direct Rigs

 

All the rigs in this library contain both the so called studio rigs and the corresponding direct rig, i.e. the rigs captured without the cabinet, by using a loadbox.
They does not retain any part of the cabinet response and they are useful to pair them with other cabinets or IRs. Watch how they work...
