Celestion Unveils Ruby Impulse Response

New emulation captures Celestion’s Ruby guitar speaker.

Ipswich, UK (September 6, 2019)—Loudspeaker manufacturer Celestion has added the recently launched Ruby guitar speaker to its line of Impulse Responses.

The physical Celestion Ruby is an alnico-magnet guitar speaker that’s purpose-built to create vintage tones. The speaker is intended to recall an alnico vibe with a dampened attack, aiming to provide warmth, mellow highs and a smooth midrange. Now the Celestion Ruby guitar speaker has been captured as an Impuse Response and is available to download as a digital representation.

The Ruby IRs were recorded using three typical microphones—a Shure SM57, a Royer ribbon mic and a Sennheiser MD421. Each mic was in turn recorded in six unique positions (including a rear mic for the open back cabinets) and labelled within the IR files as Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2. In addition to the three studio mics included with this IR pack, a Neumann TLM107 room mic was also used to provide tonal options.
