Since 2008, Two notes has built a reputation worldwide as a technology leader in developing studio-grade signal management and impulse response (IR) simulation products designed for guitar and bass. Focusing on the signal chain, from the amplifier or preamp output to the PA, monitor, headphones or mixer, Two notes technology offers musicians a series of products and software designed for tone control, shaping and studio environment simulation.
The Celestion Impulse Responses have been fully re-created in Two notes’ proprietary format and are available both in the Two notes store, as well as alongside the full line of Celestion Impulse Responses on CelestionPlus.
This move is part of Celestion’s ongoing commitment to make Celestion speaker IRs available and easy to use on as many different hardware and software platforms as possible, giving users maximum choice about which gear they can use to generate awesome and authentic Celestion tone.
With the Two notes IR format, users now have full access to all the available Wall of Sound functionality. These are all new IR captures, closely following the Two notes IR recording protocol. Each cabinet is recorded with 8 microphones, and the user has the capability to move around each microphone in the virtual room: an almost limitless number of IRs generated by the Two notes proprietary format. Each impulse response is fully compatible with the Overload Parameter (available in both Wall of Sound and Torpedo Studio), a unique non-linear convolution processing capability that is able to reproduce the distortion of the speaker when pushed hard. And there is no difference in quality between the current WAV files and the new Two notes’ format files. Users get the same highly accurate speaker tones, simply in a format best tailored to the Two notes simulation environment.
Furthermore, adding Celestion IRs to the Two notes environment means users also get the Celestion quality tone re-produced using five additional microphones: AKG C414EB, AKG D12, Beyer Dynamic M160, Coles 4038 and the Neumann U47. Users can still use Celestion’s standard WAV format IRs on Two notes’ hardware and software as before, but without the full functionality and additional microphones offered by the Two notes proprietary format.
Users who want the new Celestion IRs in Two notes format have two options. They can go to the CelestionPlus website and choose ‘Two notes’ from the ‘Shop’ drop-down menu and click through to either Celestion Blue Two notes, G12M Two notes or Vintage 30 Two notes. From there, they can select the speaker cabinet pack, or individual speaker cabinets. The other option is directly available on the Two notes website, where the dedicated format IRs are available from the Two notes store, as single cabinets or as speaker collection packs.
Celestion IR digital downloads are now available for use with audio processing platforms from Atomic Amps, Fractal Audio Systems, HeadRush, Kemper, Line 6, Logidy, Positive Grid, Two notes and Yamaha. The entire comprehensive range of professionally captured Celestion Impulse Responses now include the A-Type, Celestion Blue, Celestion Cream, Celestion Gold, Classic Lead 80, G12H 55Hz, G12K-100, G12-35XC , G12T-75, G12-50GL Lynchback, G12-H150 Redback, G12M Greenback, G12M-65 Creamback, G12M-75 Creamback, G12H Anniversary, G12-65, Neo Creamback, V-Type, and Vintage 30 models. Celestion plans to expand the range of speakers available in Two notes format in the future.
