Speaker manufacturer Celestion is on the eve of its 100th anniversary. You don’t just luck into that kind of longevity. The company, which began in 1924 with the first cone loudspeaker patent, was instrumental in the sound of the British Invasion. It has since become a famed pro audio brand in its own right as the manufacturer of world-renowned guitar and bass speakers.
Now, Celestion’s high-quality speakers for guitar and bass are available in an easy-to-use, insanely creative plug-in: Celestion Speaker Shaper. Celestion Speaker Shaper replaces the need for Impulse Response loaders by enabling you to set up two cabinets in parallel and independently adjust specs for, well, just about everything. There is a multitude of permutations to discover. Tweak your favourite speakers or bring your dream rig to life. Either way, Celestion Speaker Shaper will blow you away.
Softube has a long history modelling professional gear. Softube’s collaboration with premium pro audio brands like Marshall, Tube-Tech, Chandler Limited ®, and Empirical Labs spans almost two decades. When it comes to creating software that sounds precisely like the hardware equivalent, Softube’s reputation is rock solid.
This legacy is the foundation of Celestion Speaker Shaper. When creating it, Softube took the exacting approach they have become known for: expert modelling, precise testing, and careful fine-tuning. Because to create software that is equal to the original gear and innovates upon it, everything must be perfect. Nothing less.
Phenomenal speaker sounds, optimized workflow, and more flexibility and control than you ever thought possible. In partnership with Celestion, Softube brings an officially licensed plugin that eliminates the need for IR loaders for guitar and bass sounds. Scale eleven of Celestion’s most famous speakers from 8″ to 24″. Calibrate three channels per speaker and eight microphone options per channel. Then tweak parameters like speaker break-up, ohms, magnet type and strength, open versus closed cabinets, room sounds, 4-band EQ, and more. Celestion Speaker Shaper can make both natural and fantastical sound transformations a reality.
Ever wanted to play an 8×24″ Celestion Vintage 30 cabinet? Now, you can. Speaker Shaper offers authentic, high-quality Celestion sound with eleven of the British company’s most popular guitar and bass speakers: Vintage 30, G12T-75, G12K-100, G12M Greenback, G12M-65 Creamback, G12M Heritage, Classic Lead 80, Celestion Blue, PULSE12, BL10-100X, and BN10-200K. Beyond scaling and ageing them to your specs, you can change the speaker magnet material and determine how it will behave. Experiment with Ferrite M and H or AlNiCo and Neodymium to shape your speaker sound in ways only Speaker Shaper can.
With Celestion Speaker Shaper, you get eight classic microphones to finetune. Dyn 57, Dyn 7B, Dyn 421, Dyn 112, Cond 87, Cond C414, Cond 47, and Rib 121—to be exact. Place up to three mics in front of each speaker to capture sound precisely the way you want. And when you get it exactly right, check out the onboard effects. Speaker Shaper enables you to add realistic speaker distortion, sculpt your sound with EQ, or get mix-ready with room sounds. You can create precise setups of mic’d Celestion cabinets or push the sonic envelope with inspired experimentation.
Celestion Speaker Shaper offers a groundbreaking approach to sound shaping. And, unlike IR loaders or other speaker plug-ins, it can be used both as a native plugin and as a module in Amp Room, Softube’s pro audio guitar and bass platform. In Amp Room, you can couple it with other plugins and modules, such as Softube’s Marshall range, or join multiple iterations of the Speaker Shaper module itself. The sound-sculpting options are bountiful, but it’s a breeze to use with all the parameters displayed coherently and no submenus—what you see is what you get. And not just for guitar and bass. Creative use of Speaker Shaper on synths, vocals, and drums can lead to some unexpected and truly wonderful sonic places.
