Ipswich, UK (December 16, 2019) — Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers celebrated for their classic guitar tones, is pleased to announce that they have teamed up with Vox Amps to meticulously capture the tones of three of their iconic speaker cabinets. The result is the new Celestion Vox Cabinets Collection of Impulse Responses. The new Vox Cabinets Collection, along with the expansive collection of authentic Celestion guitar speaker tones, is available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.
The new Vox cabinet collection of impulse responses have been created using the same painstaking recording techniques applied to all of Celestion’s own classic speaker impulse responses, with expert sound engineers have faithfully capturing the distinctive tones of three VOX cabinets in several configurations:
- VOX V212C 2×12 open back containing two Celestion G12M Greenbacks
- VOX 212 HWX 2×12 open back containing two Celestion Blues
- VOX V412BN 4×12 closed back containing four Celestion G12M Greenbacks
Available singly or as a collection, these speaker impulse responses offer the authentic tones of high-quality VOX cabinets cabinet to add to any arsenal.
Each VOX cabinet has been sampled using the same pro-quality microphones (Shure SM57, Royer R-121 and Sennheiser MD421) in the same six positions as the other Celestion impulse responses – as well as an additional rear position for the open back cabinets. This gives you 18 (or 21) tone options for each cabinet, plus our usual extra mic mix options. In addition, each cabinet has been recorded using Neumann TLM 107 room mics (Left, Right and Stereo) to mix in as desired to achieve that preferred tone.
The new VOX cabinet speaker impulse responses are all downloaded in .WAV format for maximum compatibility with a wide range of leading DAWs and amp modellers.

About 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 the perfect tone. Once you find a tone that you love, it can be precisely recreated, 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.
Celestion IR digital downloads are available in uncompressed, industry standard .WAV format at 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz sample rates at 24 bit depth, in lengths of 200 and 500 milliseconds Once the files are downloaded and unzipped, users simply load the IRs into a convolution plug-in in their DAW or into other processing hardware. These formats will work in all known hardware capable of loading IRs, and for the most popular hardware Celestion have already grouped together the correct formats. Guitar processor manufacturers supported include (but are not limited to) Atomic Amps, Fractal Audio Systems, Kemper, Line 6, Logidy, Positive Grid, Two Notes, Headrush and Yamaha. The Celestion IR files may be downloaded in the sample rate and length appropriate for the hardware being used or as a complete package of all rates and lengths. Certain third party hardware requires the files to be converted into a proprietary format before use. Celestion Plus.
