In 1984, the first programmable guitar amp was a sensation, something that had never existed before. Back then, when two channels and a master volume on an amp counted as comfort features, Edmund Engl’s futuristic concept of an amp was equivalent to a landslide. Engl wasn’t an electronics freak, but a musician who saw things with the pragmatic necessity of musical practice and he thought that such a programmable amp would be idea, with a variety of sounds available via footswitch. Enter Horst Langer, the technically savvy friend and ENGL’s technical mastermind. With his know-how, he was able to realize every idea and every ENGL amp is a child of his mind.  No matter whether it's a small roar cube of the kind of a Screamer or an Ironball, the compact Tops Gigmaster , Rockmaster and Metalmaster or new custom pedals, today every product breathes the enthusiastic spirit with which Edmund Engl and Horst Langer set off back then. ENGL quality standards, high-quality components and the best workmanship is appreciated by prominent players all over the world.

As with all Celestion genuine Impulse Response collections, the ENGL Cabinet IRs have been captured by expert engineers in a state-of-the-art recording studio, using a range of professional studio microphones. Each of these ENGL cabinets has been close-miked in six positions using three different studio-quality microphones – a Shure SM57, a Sennheiser MD421 and a Royer R-121, giving 18 different close-mic tone options for each cabinet, as well as the usual ‘Left’, ‘Right’ and ‘Stereo’ room-mic impulses recorded with a Neumann TLM 107 condenser mic to add some room space, plus an additional twelve mixes of preset microphone combinations.
Available for download in .WAV format, the ENGL Cabinets IRs can be installed and used on the same huge range of DAWs or amp-modeling gear in just the same way as existing Celestion IRs. Each are available for download individually, or as a part of a collection.
