The new Magnificent 7 Collection features a line-up of seven iconic 12-inch speaker impulse responses, including the Celestion Blue, G12M Greenback, Vintage 30, G12M-65 Creamback, G12H-75 Creamback, G12H Anniversary and Heritage Series G12-65. The new Magnificent Seven IRs, along with the other classic collections of genuine Celestion speaker IRs, are available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.com.
The Magnificent 7 Collection represents the first of Celestion’s most popular guitar speakers to be made available as impulse responses, offered as a complete package to provide a wealth of essential tones in one collection.
The Celestion Magnificent 7 speaker impulse responses included are:
- Celestion Blue – The Original: This classic speaker became a firm favourite of legendary artists, including The Beatles, Queen and U2. It has warm lows, mellow upper-mids, and a bell-like top-end with the glorious dampened attack that alnico is famous for.
- G12M Greenback – The Legend: The modern incarnation of the speaker that helped define rock tone, played by legends like Clapton, Page and Beck. Expect a broad mid-range attack and a restrained top-end with added grit and aggression.
- Vintage 30 – The Classic: A superbly versatile speaker that has found a home delivering a generous range of metal and rock tones with tight bass, rich and vocal mid-range and an intricately detailed top end. Clean tones are crisp and that famous upper midrange sits just right in the mix.
- G12M-65 Creamback – The New Standard: Delivering the much-loved classic rock tones of the Greenback with added low-end grunt.
- G12H-75 Creamback – The Hard Hitter: A speaker with added power with a heavier magnet that enables the production of a tight bass with impactful highs and awesome thickness to single notes.
- G12H Anniversary – The Heavy Rocker: A speaker to recreate the classic sounds of the 1960’s and 1970’s hard rock era, the Anniversary speaker delivers serious swagger with its aggressive low-end, articulate treble and searing midrange.
- Heritage Series G12-65 – The Blues Meister: With a fast attack and tightly-controlled low-end, this Heritage speaker is a firm favourite with hard rock artists and modern blues players alike.

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 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.
