What are they?



First and foremost, the OwnHammer Player Packs are condensed feature set impulse response libraries that are available in external OwnHammer partner webstores, in proprietary file formats (.hir for Line 6 // .syx and .ir for Fractal) for exclusive use in their hardware and software products.

In the use application field for guitar and bass cabinet impulse responses, over time with the emergence and popularity of outboard platforms - be it digital amp modelers or load boxes with impulse response loading capabilities - the majority consumer base has slowly shifted from studio engineers and recordists to performers building their own sounds and taking these not only to the studio but to the stage. With this change in consumer demographic, the feature and option set requirement has also moved from something verbose, complex, and capable of the tiniest variation in nuance for the more technically oriented and experienced user, to the 'grab and go' mentality of the creativity and performance oriented user.

Enter the OwnHammer Player Packs

With a much more simplified presentation, these impulse response libraries offer a scaled back file inclusion list, but leave all of the best parts as well as add some new options to the palette. This way guitarists and recordists who just want to be provided a minimalized but powerful set of IR's can be up and running quickly with the same commercial level sound quality that OwnHammer is known around the globe for.

Using the best hand selected specimens of the industry standard gear used for recording electric guitar, and a file naming language that is quick and intuitive to follow, the Player Packs enable the user to get superior and professional sounding cabinet and speaker impulse response files in their chain in just a couple of clicks. The individual mic placements are set to offer a sweet spot, bright (-B), and dark (-D) option, and the mic mixes are labeled by tonality, none of which are guitar, genre, or gain structure specific. Choose what works best with your taste, signal chain, and use application, and jam away!
