Celestion is delighted to announce that three of their most iconic speaker Impulse Responses – the Vintage 30, G12M Greenback and Celestion Blue, are now available in Two Notes format, for use with the company’s critically acclaimed Torpedo (Studio, Live, C.A.B) hardware, the speaker and miking simulation engine; and Wall of Sound software environment (a DAW plug-in version of Torpedo.) The Celestion Impulse Responses have been fully re-created in Two notes’ proprietary format and are available both in the Two notes store, as well as alongside the full line of Celestion Impulse Responses on CelestionPlus.
This move is part of Celestion’s ongoing commitment to make Celestion speaker IRs available and easy to use on as many different hardware and software platforms as possible, giving customers maximum choice about which gear they can use to generate awesome and authentic Celestion tone.
With the Two notes IR format, users now have full access to all the available Wall of Sound functionality. These are all new IR captures, closely following the Two notes IR recording protocol. Each cabinet is recorded with 8 microphones, and the user has the capability to move around each microphone in the virtual room: an almost limitless number of IRs generated by the Two notes proprietary format. Each impulse response is fully compatible with the Overload Parameter (available in both Wall of Sound and Torpedo Studio), a unique non-linear convolution processing capability that is able to reproduce the distortion of the speaker when pushed hard. And there is there’s no difference in quality between the current WAV files and the new Two notes’ format files. Customers get the same highly accurate speaker tones, simply in a format best tailored to the Two notes environment.
Furthermore, adding Celestion IRs to the Two notes environment means users also get the Celestion quality tone re-produced using five additional microphones: AKG C414EB, AKG D12, Beyer Dynamic M160, Coles 4038 and the Neumann U47.
Customers can still use Celestion’s standard WAV format IRs on Two notes’ hardware and software as before, but without the full functionality and additional microphones offered by the Two notes proprietary format.
Users who want the new Celestion IRs in two notes format have two options:
