Celestion have collaborated with Blackstar Amplification to faithfully capture the unique tones of their iconic speaker cabinet collection as impulse responses.
Using the same painstaking recording techniques we applied to our own speaker IRs, Celestion’s team of professional sound engineers have meticulously captured the unique tones of five Blackstar cabs, each loaded with classic Celestion speakers:
Blackstar S1-412A 4×12 closed back containing Celestion Vintage 30 speakers
Blackstar S1-212 2×12 closed back containing Celestion Vintage 30 speakers
Blackstar HT 212VOC MKII 2×12 open back containing Celestion Seventy 80 speakers
This new range of speaker IRs offers authentic Celestion tone from iconic Blackstar cabs.
Each Blackstar cabinet impulse response has been accurately recorded using the same studio-quality microphones (Royer R-121, Shure SM57 and Sennheiser MD421) in the same six adjustable positions as our core range of Celestion IRs – as well as an extra rear position for the open back cabinets.
This offers 18 (or 21) tone options for each cabinet, plus our usual additional mic mix options. Each Blackstar cab impulse response has also been recorded using a Neumann TLM 107 room mic (in Left, Right and Stereo) for you to mix in and achieve your desired tone.
This range of Blackstar cabinet impulse responses are all downloaded in .WAV format for compatibility with the majority of DAWs and amp modellers.
