Load your own cabs, or use ours
New for 2022, Power Load IR gets an all-new Digital Cab IR loader complete with memory space for 16 cabs, including 8 of our most popular cabs. You can also load your favorite cabs.
The Power Load IR is the only stand-alone solution that provides two integrated cabinet sim options, Analog (for zero latency and expansive dynamic range) and Digital IR (for realistic room reflections and convolutions). You can use both individually or simultaneously. You can also defeat the cab sim and use an external IR.
Professional-Quality Headphone Amplifier
A high-quality stereo headphone amplifier with a stereo effects loop allows you to insert delays and reverb pedals into the headphone mix, plus a Program Input that accepts a stereo music source such as a CD or MP3 player or group rehearsal mixer for silent practice.
For live performance you can place the Power Load IR in between your amp and cabinet, sending the XLR with either or both Cab sims direct to the Front of House PA and Monitor board. No cabs? No Problem! You can crank your favorite amp silently, delivering dynamic consistent tone direct to the console.
