Celestion Introduces the G10 Creamback Guitar Speaker Impulse Response

March 20 2020, 00:10
Celestion announced the addition of the G10 Creamback Impulse Response to its impressive collection of digitally downloadable Celestion Impulse Responses available for audition and download at CelestionPlus. The G10 Creamback guitar speaker delivers rich classic Celestion Creamback tone in a smaller 10” format and now it has been captured as an IR, an accurate digital representation which provides all the warmth and detail that guitar players expect.

With a ceramic magnet, a 1.75-inch voice coil, and 45-watts of power handling, the G10 Creamback is built using the same production methods and materials developed for the 12” Creambacks; and just like its bigger brothers, the G10 Creamback is hand-built in the UK. Punchy and dynamic, exactly as guitar players would expect from a 10", with all its tone and warm, expressive, detailed and well-balanced sound. 
The G10 Creamback speaker impulse response collection includes five different cabinet configurations:
1×10 (open back)
1×10 (closed back)
2×10 (open back)
2×10 (closed back)
4×10 (closed back)
Each one of the cabinet configurations was recorded with painstaking accuracy by Celestion' own expert sound engineers, in a world-class studio, using three pro-grade studio microphones – the Sennheiser MD421, Royer R-121 ribbon mic and Shure SM57 – each in six different positions (plus a rear mic for the open back cabs). All the positions are referred to in the IR files as Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2. A Neumann TLM107 room mic was also used to provide additional mic mixes, giving users an impressive range of tonal options.

As with all genuine Celestion IRs, the new G10 Creamback impulse responses are downloaded in .WAV format for compatibility with most DAWs, IR plug-ins and amp modeling software.
The new G10 Creamback IRs join the extensive collection of genuine Celestion Impulse Responses. Celestion IRs, which capture the essential behavior of the cabinet in the specific space in which it was recorded, including the frequency and phase response of single drivers as well as the interaction of multiple speakers, offer the user significant benefits. In both recording and live production, Celestion IRs enable the desired tone to be precisely and consistently reproduced regardless of the music recording or live sound environment. And IR users can escape the limitations of a single mic and cabinet setup and explore a universe of possibilities to create and recreate the perfect tone, in the studio or on the road, time after time. And the IRs allow Celestion customers to audition specific models before purchasing one or more physical speakers.
