Oozing a rich musical warmth, the Celestion Ruby 2×12 (open back) speaker impulse response brings an instantly familiar alnico vibe with its glorious, dampened attack, smooth, sophisticated midrange and mellow highs. This speaker IR brings a sweetness, balance and depth that always seems to sound ‘just right’!
Meticulously captured by our expert sound engineers in a world-class room, the Celestion Ruby 2×12 (open back) speaker impulse response was recorded using three studio-quality microphones – a Shure SM57, a Royer ribbon mic and a Sennheiser MD421.
Each of these three iconic microphones have been recorded in six different positions (plus a rear mic for this open back option) and named as Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2. An additional Neumann TLM107 room microphone was also used to provide extra mic mixes.
This Celestion Ruby 2×12 open back speaker impulse response is available for downloaded in .WAV format for full compatibility with most DAWs and amp modelling software.
