Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers whose classic guitar tones have made the company famous as the voice of rock and roll, is pleased to add the popular BN10-200X bass speaker to their impressive line of Bass Impulse Responses. The new Bass IRs, along with the complete collection of other genuine Celestion guitar speaker tones, is available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.
Knowing that not every player wants a super-clean, high-fidelity bass sound, Celestion used their unrivalled knowledge of neodymium motor structures to design and build the 10-inch BN10-200X bass speaker to be characterised by extended low-end tone and extreme amounts of linear excursion. Light in weight but not in performance, the BN10-200X delivers a rich bass tone with a powerful low-end punch, and is ideal for high-powered rock performances that require a full-bodied warm, defined bass tone. Now the popular BN10-200X has been accurately replicated as a digital impulse response. Using the same meticulous recording techniques used for Celestion’s entire huge range of guitar speaker impulse responses, the company’s expert sound engineers have made the Celestion BN10-200X bass impulse response available in a 2×10 (closed) and 4×10 (closed) cabinet configurations or as a BN10-200X Bass Bundle. The BN10-200X Bass Bundle, includes both the 2×10 and 4×10 cabinet configurations and the addition of ‘Playing Style’ mixes – enhanced for a variety of different playing techniques, including Finger basic, Finger warmth detail, Plectrum (Pick) basic, Plectrum (Pick) aggressive and Slap.
The BN10-200X single cabinets can also be included in a Pick & Mix selection. The Pick & Mix option allows customers to select combinations of either 3 or 5 cabinets from the company’s full range of original IRs, offering flexibility in building a personal IR library at a significant savings compared to purchasing individual IRs.
Each of the new bass speaker impulse responses are downloaded in .WAV format for compatibility with most DAWs, IR plug-ins and amp modelling software.

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.
