Celestion has teamed up with innovative German amp designer and manufacturer ENGL to create a new addition to our now-legendary Backline Heroes range of cabinet IR libraries, featuring six classic speaker cabinets in pristine digital form.
We’ve used the same world-class recording methods we apply to record our own range of best-selling speaker impulse responses to faithfully capture the tones of six classic ENGL cabs:
ENGL E112VB 1×12 closed back with a Celestion V30 speaker
ENGL E212VB 2×12 closed back with Celestion V30 speakers
ENGL E212VHB 2×12 closed back with Celestion V30 speakers
ENGL E412VGB 4×12 closed back with Celestion V30 speakers
ENGL E412VSB 4×12 closed back with Celestion V30 speakers
ENGL E412XXLB 4×12 closed back with Celestion V30 speakers
This set of cabinet impulse responses offers authentic Celestion tone from iconic ENGL cabs. Each of these ENGL cabinets has been close-miked in six positions using three different studio-quality mics – a Shure SM57, a Sennheiser MD421 and a Royer R-121, giving 18 different close-mic tone options for each cabinet, as well as our usual ‘Left’, ‘Right’ and ‘Stereo’ room-mic impulses recorded with a Neumann TLM 107 condenser mic for you to mix in as much or as little as you need to add some room space to your perfect tone, plus an additional twelve mixes of preset microphone combinations.
These ENGL cabinet impulse responses are downloaded as .WAV files for compatibility with most leading DAWs and amp modelling software.
