OwnHammer - Impulse Response Libraries - 112 RECT VTP-12A (Oct 2020)

The “112 RECT” is based on and seeking to recreate the sound of a MESA/Boogie® 1×12 Recto® cabinet.

The “VTP-12A” is based on and seeking to recreate the sound of a 12 inch, 8-ohm, 75-Hz cone Celestion® T5901A V-Type speaker made in July of 2013.

The Cabinet (112 RECT)
“This cabinet does an excellent job of having a tonality that is both unique and transparent. While most all cabinets impose something on the overall sound, some more than others, what this cabinet does comes off more like an “enhancement” than a “signature”. In this way, it allows the driver to express itself without much at all in the way of forced unwanted overtones, and what it does have in that regard coalesces into something very pleasing – a clarity in the mids and top, and fullness in the low midrange, especially for a box of this smaller size.”

The Speaker (VTP-12A)
“While most ‘V-style’ speakers tend to accent the upper mids, this driver’s unique voice more accentuates lower midrange frequencies. This gives off a warmer, fuller, somewhat softer tonality, that lends itself to smaller and open back enclosures, another contrast to ‘V-style’ speakers. The overall sound is pleasant, smooth, and full, without being dull.”

The Combination
“These two pieces merge to result in a sound that is big for being small, and expressive for being thick. If there were non-music related words to describe it, it would be a “chocolate fat-baby little-big box”. This tone can be great for adding fullness to the traditional combo amp sound – excellent for blues-jazz fusion, for example – and is utilized this way to great effect in the real world. Surprisingly and probably not commonly thought of, it is also superb for adding tightness to bigger box tones by blending this cab/speaker in underneath a larger cab/speaker configuration.”
