Celestion has just released new Blackstar Cabinet IRs, the newest additions to the company’s Backline Heroes range of Impulse Responses. The new IRs – which feature 15 of Blackstar’s cabinets loaded with classic Celestion speakers – are available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.com.

The new IRs allow users to enjoy classic Blackstar cab tone whether at home, in the studio or playing live on stage.

Each Blackstar Cabinet impulse response has been accurately recorded using the same studio-quality microphones (Royer R-121, Shure SM57 and Sennheiser MD421) in the same six adjustable positions as our core range of Celestion IRs – as well as an extra rear position for the open back cabinets. This offers 18 tone options for each cabinet, plus Celestion’s usual additional mic mix options.

Each Blackstar cab impulse response has also been recorded using a Neumann TLM 107 room mic (in left, right and stereo) for users to mix in and achieve their desired tone. In addition to the five different cab types included, the Blackstar collection also offers some of Celestion’s most popular speakers: the Vintage 30, Seventy 80, G12T-75 and V-Type.

The range of Blackstar Cabinet impulse responses are all downloaded in .WAV format for compatibility with the majority of DAWs and amp modellers. The New Blackstar Cabinet Impulse Responses from Celestion are available for purchase individually or as a full collection for a significant discount.
