[CAPTURE MASTER] Le Mirador // New Cabs!

The room was designed by Michel Deluc of Amadeus France.
There's three distinctives zones: a stone room (very tight), an very open zone due to the wave roof, and a third zone well balanced.
In all the room sounds are distinctives, focused and musicals.
After tests, we place cabs in the wave roof zone. Far mic position is in the "normal" zone. The purpose was to have a beautyfull roomy sound.

Anyway even if I'm a newbie in acoustic measure, I could say is that my brain, my ears and my mixs love this main room. :)

I've never heard km54, sometimes I find the km184 too harsh, I'll guess the 54 are smoother

Beautiful studio Sylvain, magnifique!

The cardioid KM54's are tube, and they're bright but very sweet up top, more so than any FET small capsule that I've heard.

Neumann made a tube omni version too, the KM53.

I'm sure there are many for sale around the EU, but not so many here in the US.

I'm excited to hear your next cab releases, especially the vintage Super Reverb!

Merci!

Hi Sylvain...

I looked for the new Super Reverb cab on the Two Notes store via Torpedo Remote, couldn't find it?

Is the new Super Reverb .tsr file ready?

I think you're correct Pacocito.

Sylvain will likely release all the new cabs at one time, so we have to be patient! :cry:

Maybe it's still not available. ;)

Looking forward to it!!

BritGreen2: Vintage Marshall 4x12 with original Greenbacks with 8 new mics (including omni small condensers giving new room sound possibilities). :rock:
Silver102: Fender Princeton Reverb with 8 new mics. :gethim:
etc... :)
etc... :)

Martian sound! :LOL: :LOL:

I wonder how the Martians record on Mars with no atmoshere? The Martians must use a contact transducer like a piezo, oui? :doh:

Great news Sylvain, looking forward to the new cabs, merci!

Registered just to say:
Thank you!

Love CalifOver — great all-round cab, works well with clean/crunch/higain on mesa-like AND british-like amps.
Love TangerBlak — to me it's the best match for the Rockverb amp.
Love VoiceT60 — just love, it's irrational :)

Hi everybody,
I'm really sorry for the mishaps. Our second batch of capture will be finally available very very soon.

Two notes have change the protocol to upload and validate captures... and I we are very very busy at the studio...
So it took more time than expected... We are truly sorry :(

But there's two very good news: :D
-Now our new captures will be available very quickly
-I have tried this second batch and this captures are... awesome!!!!! :rock:

There will many things to report...
I'm really happy about small condensers diaphgramm (Shoeps Mk5 and Shure km141).
It open Two Notes sounds to new possibilities which are very interesting. Omni and cardioid modes was a very good choice IMHO.
Hysteris, room, stereo, filter response... There's many application... :)
Beyerdynamic M380 have f,;:*£%¨huge bass response !!!!!!!!!
Super CTS, Mars40 and Deluxe are very plaisant.
It will be long but it's really cool.

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

New captures are online except BritGreen2 due to audios issues that we have to fix.
You should try Deluxe, SuperBlue, Mars40 or Silver10 2 in La Boutique.
We are very proud of it! :D

Hi Sylvain, the new captures are magnifique!

I picked up the Super, Mars (interesting vintage sound indeed!), the Princeton #2, and the little Orange cab, so thank you to all at Le Mirador for the hard work!

I'm enjoying the room tone options as well, merci!

EDIT: Whoops, missed the Deluxe, picked that up too!

My Fender preamp has never been happier LOL (1X10, 1X12, and 4X10, all my favorite Fender cab sounds)!
