Celestion, a pro sound manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers, has launched the Seventy 80 collection of Impulse Responses, the digital rendition of its popular Seventy 80 guitar loudspeaker.
The Celestion Seventy 80 loudspeaker was created in the late 1990s and has gone on to become one of the company’s most popular guitar speakers. Described by Celestion to produce a “modern, gutsy British sound”, the Seventy 80 takes the sound of a ceramic magnet guitar speaker to new heights.
The Seventy 80 has a controlled but mighty low-end with a powerful and dynamic upper mid-range. Its top-end response is clear for enhanced treble, while its low notes are tight, making it an ideal choice for both lead or rhythm guitar.
The Celestion Seventy 80 digitally downloadable IR collection is available in five classic cabinet configurations including:
- 1×12 (open back)
- 1×12 (closed back)
- 2×12 (open back)
- 2×12 (closed back)
- 4×12 (closed back)
The new Seventy 80 impulse responses have been digitally captured by sound engineers in the studio. Celestion has used professional studio mics (Shure SM57, Royer R-121 and Sennheiser MD421) in six adjustable positions to offer six 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 a wide range of tonal options.
As with all of Celestion’s speaker Impulse Responses, the new Seventy 80 IRs are downloaded in .WAV format to ensure compatibility with the majority of amp modelling software and plugins.
The new Seventy 80 collection is available for download at CelestionPlus.
