Fractal Audio Releases Cab Pack Two: Mad Oak Studio

Fractal Audio has released the second volume of their Cab Packs.

Plainstow, NH (June 24, 2013) -- After recently adding dozens of new, professionally produced Speaker Cab Simulations to the Axe-Fx II, Fractal Audio Systems has drawn from the same studio sessions to release CAB PACK TWO: MAD OAK STUDIO, a collection of over 175 Cab/Mic/Preamp combinations. The new Cab Impulse Response (“IR”) files can be loaded into the Axe-Fx II, Axe-Fx Ultra, or Axe-Fx Standard, giving those units the ability to reproduce the tones of the original speaker cabs.

The Cab IRs were created from the combined amp collections of Mad Oak Sound and Fractal Audio Systems. Highly sought-after combos and cabs were captured using classic microphones through vintage 1272 preamps.

The IRs were produced at Mad Oak Studio in Allston, MA.

CAB PACK TWO is available for purchase and digital download for just $19.99.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
