MESA/Boogie® Impulse Response Cab Packs from Two notes
MESA® Cabinets are well known for being some of the most balanced, detailed, articulate… and massive sounding cabs available, all while covering an incredible range of styles and formats. Top shelf components and materials are used throughout each design, from non-void Baltic Birch ply, to our exclusive, custom speakers, built to our exacting specs from the best manufacturers around the world.
The importance of speakers and cabinets to getting great Tone is often overlooked, perhaps because we interface more often and directly with our amplifier, instrument or pedals. But the speaker cabinet is the last stop before great Tone; the final filter of your sound that realizes your Tone and produces the volume, punch, and dynamics that breathes life into your playing. Never underestimate the importance of a great cabinet to complete your Tone.
Impulse Response technology captures and harnesses the variety and character of different cabinets and speakers, including the microphones and positioning we use to capture our best Tones. MESA is proud to announce our first Official Impulse Response Cab Packs, exclusively available from Two notes Audio Engineering and the Two notes store: https://store.two-notes.com
Two notes is a leader of Impulse Response technology and their proprietary convolution approach delivers premium quality captures for live and studio applications that are as good as the products being captured.
Two notes founder and CEO, Guillaume Pille, is a longtime Mesa fan, owner and user and was excited to work with Mesa on an Official IR Cab Pack for Two notes software and hardware products like Wall of Sound and Torpedo Live and Torpedo C.A.B.
“Mesa cabs are clearly some off the best available and also some of the most commonly used and frequently requested Impulse Reponses in all of our cab offerings. It’s an honor to be working with the company that created the original, iconic products that so many of us depend on and enjoy, and to work so closely with Mesa to create what I believe are the world-class IRs that you’d expect from the same company.”Guillaume Pille
Two notes Audio Engineering - Founder & CEO
Handling the all-important Capture Master duties on such an important product and process was an easy decision for Mesa. Sean Beresford handled MESA/Boogie Artist Relations for a decade between 1990-2000 before becoming a highly respected engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sean’s early touring tech experience with high level artists like Mark King of Level 42 and Vernon Reid of Living Colour combined perfectly with his deep knowledge of Mesa products & Tones and his passion for audio engineering made him the perfect choice for the meticulous task of such important captures.
