Ipswich, UK (October 30, 2019)—Loudspeaker manufacturer Celestion has introduced its Seventy 80 Collection of Impulse Responses, ironically—given its name—digitally recreating its Seventy 80 guitar loudspeaker from the Nineties.
The Celestion Seventy 80 ceramic magnet guitar speaker was conceived in the late 1990s as the G12P-80; characterized by the company as “delivering a modern, gutsy British sound,” the Seventy 80 has “a tightly controlled low-end with a dynamic upper mid-range.”
The Celestion Seventy 80 IR collection is available in five virtual cabinet configurations including 1×12 (open back); 1×12 (closed back); 2×12 (open back); 2×12 (closed back); and 4×12 (closed back).
Celestion have used the same range of studio mics (Shure SM57, Royer R-121 and Sennheiser MD421) in the same six fully-adjustable positions as the current range of cabinet impulse response to offer the same options – Balanced, Bright, Thin, Fat, Dark and Dark 2, as well as an additional rear mic for the open back cabinets. The Seventy 80 impulse responses have additionally been recorded using a Neumann TLM 107 room mic (Left, Right and Stereo) for the widest range of tonal options possible.
The Celestion Seventy 80 IRs can be purchased individually or as a collection at a discount. As with all of Celestion’s Impulse Responses, the new Seventy 80 IRs are downloaded in .WAV format.
