Producer, engineer and musician Bob Rock, known for producing a number of the world famous rock bands and artists such as The Tragically Hip, Aerosmith, The Cult, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, Metallica, Bryan Adams, Michael Bublé, Black Veil Brides, and David Lee Roth, has become a big fan of Celestion Impulse Responses.
“The Celestion Impulse Response Speakers are a Sonic Revelation -- great speaker choices for my Kemper profiler. I’ve been using them as a plug-in to shape existing guitar tracks to sit just right in a mix, and this is just the beginning of the possibilities. They are a “must have” for pro studios and home recordings, and I am looking forward to more speaker profiles,” says Rock. “I have been using Celestion Speakers for 40 plus years and now this!! Thank you Celestion! You Rock!”
Legendary guitarist Steve Stevens is also a fan of Celestion Impulse Responses, and he describes how they respond and sound great at times when you can’t necessarily mike up a vintage guitar cabinet — and often, even when you can.
“I’ve been into the idea of using impulse responses for quite some time,” Stevens explains. “I have a Kemper profiling amp at home, and a Fractal Audio Axe-FX. I’d used some IRs from other companies, but I gotta say the ones from Celestion are on a whole other level. The descriptions of them sound exactly like the speaker drivers I’m used to. The other thing is that they’re totally phase-correct. I can treat them the way I’d treat combining real guitar cabinets, bringing them up on two channels on my mixing board. They just sound great. They’re full, and the best that there are. And I’ve used them all!”
