Celestion Announces Bergantino Bass Cabinet Impulse Responses
Celestion has announced a collaboration with Bergantino Audio Systems to release a line of Impulse Responses based on the company’s NXT and NXV series bass cabinets. The Bergantino Bass Cab IRs include eight cabinets in a range of single and stacked cabs, with and without tweeters.
“They feature custom-designed Celestion drivers featuring the exclusive NXT neodymium motor technology created in partnership with bass amplification pioneer Jim Bergantino,” Celestion writes. “This IR collection offers access to the sounds of these harmonically rich Bergantino bass guitar cabinets for practice at home, recording in the studio or live on stage, or anywhere you might want to plug into an amazing sounding, super high-quality bass guitar cab.”
Each of the cabs was sampled using pro microphones in six different positions for tonal variety. They also include a high-frequency IR that was recorded with a Neumann KM84, which they say can be used on its own or mixed with other microphones for more top end. Finally, each cabinet option has Celestion’s “Playing Style” Irs that have been optimized for different techniques: Finger basic, Finger warmth detail, Plectrum (Pick) basic, Plectrum (Pick) aggressive and Slap.
The Celestion Bergantino Cab IRs are delivered in .WAV format for compatibility with a wide range of leading DAWs, amp modelers, and profilers. They’re available now for $11.99 each or $44.99 for the whole collection.
