Celestion announces the availability of the Ruby guitar speaker impulse responses in Two Notes format

Celestion is delighted to announce the availability of their Celestion Ruby Two Notes Guitar Speaker Impulse Responses, for use with the critically acclaimed Torpedo (Studio, Live, C.A.B) hardware, the speaker and miking simulation engine; and Wall of Sound software environment (a DAW plug-in version of Torpedo.)  The Celestion Ruby Two Notes 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 other genuine Celestion Impulse Responses on CelestionPlus.

The Celestion Ruby Two Notes speaker impulse responses ooze rich musical warmth and bring a familiar alnico vibe, complete with mellow highs and a sophisticated midrange. This Two notes speaker impulse response is the perfect digital representation of the Celestion Ruby delivering a mellow clean sound and rich, saturated gain tones all without sacrificing any of the character you’d expect from Celestion’s world-famous alnico speakers. Recorded in a world-class live room, the new Ruby Two Notes speaker impulse response collection provides a rich variety of guitar speaker tonality, with depth, balance and supreme musicality.

The Celestion Ruby impulse responses in Two Notes format include five different cabinet configurations, available both individually and as a collection:

1×12 (open back)
1×12 (closed back)
2×12 (open back)
4×12(closed back)

The Two notes IR format gives users full access to all the available functionality of the Two notes environment. 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 there’s no difference in quality between the current WAV files and the new Two notes’ format files. Customers get the same highly accurate speaker tones, simply in a format best tailored to the Two notes 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.

Customers 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.

The new Celestion Two Notes Ruby Impulse Responses join the collection of other IRs available in Two Notes format such as: Neo 250 Copperback (Two Notes,) Laney cabinets (Two Notes,) Orange Cabinets (Two Notes,)  Suhr Cabinets (Two Notes,) Celestion Blue (Two Notes,)  G12M Greenback (Two Notes) and Vintage 30 (Two Notes.)

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.

ddrum unveils Dominion Standard 5-piece shell packs

ddrum introduces the Dominion Standard Shell Packs, the latest addition to the resurrected 2020 Dominion Series. These four Dominion Standard kits, each in the popular 5-piece configuration, offer newly introduced birch shells and four high-quality PVC finish options. Extremely versatile, esthetically appealing, and affordably packaged, the Dominion Standard Shell Packs offer something for every player, regardless of playing style or experience level.

Like other ddrum kits, the Dominion Standard Shell Packs are designed to be tonally consistent and ready-to-play right out of the box. Whereas ddrum’s previous Dominion Series explored the tones of maple and ash, the resurrected 2020 kits use birch wood, which is remarkably versatile and sounds great in both studio and live applications with minimal EQ adjustment. The Dominion Standard Shell Packs marry this new sound with throwback looks, including four killer finishes: Brushed Blue, Midnight Black, Red Sparkle, and Silver Sparkle.

Extra touches on the Dominion Standard Shell Packs include a matching snare drum for an extra pop; an integrated 3-point tom suspension system for secure support; 2.3 mm triple-flange diecast hoops, including on the snare; and a full suite of Remo heads with pinstripes for the toms, a reverse dot on the snare, and a clear Powerstroke® P3 bass drum head with a resonant side and a 10-lug batter for a deep kick aesthetic. Classic Dominion-style box lugs and chrome hardware provide stability and help to ensure excellent tone.

Each Dominion Standard Shell Pack is comprised of 8’’x10’’ and 9’’x12’’ toms (6-ply), a 14’’x16’’ floor tom (6-ply), 18’’x22’’ bass drum (8-ply), and 7’’x13’’ snare drum (8-ply). The industry-standard 45-degree bearing edge creates a wide surface area while producing excellent attack and sustain for drums that sound bright, lively and modern.

The Dominion Standard Shell Pack includes the 5-piece shell pack only at a street price of $599; cymbals and supporting hardware are sold separately.

Dean NashVegas Select Series delivers classic look with original attitude

With the introduction of the Dean NashVegas Select Series, Dean Guitars delivers four new models with a classic look but plenty of original attitude. These guitars are killer professional axes with exclusive, tonally versatile pickups. Available in two finishes, Black Satin and Metallic Red Satin, and with multiple signature appointments, the Dean NashVegas Select Series is the perfect combination of classic and contemporary.

The Dean Select Series is designed by professionals for professionals, which is reflected in the stage-readiness of the Dean NashVegas Select guitars. Dean begins with their classic NashVegas body design in basswood and offers a flat top with an arm cut for enhanced playability. The bolt-on neck (25 ½’’ inch scale) with dual-action truss rod provides an extra mid-range punch with its bound 22 fret ebony fretboard and maple neck outfitted with a 12-inch radius that’s smooth and stylish with pearloid dot inlays. Grover tuners provide reliable stability that keep the tuning right on point. Dome black knobs and black hardware round out the sleek aesthetic.

Two of the NashVegas Select models offer the high-end Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo system which enhances tuning stable as players throw down any style of acrobatic playing. The other two fixed-bridge models offer a more traditional two-piece hardtail with Dean’s exclusive Cadi tailpiece for ease and sustain.

Plugged in, the exclusive Seymour Duncan APH-1N and TB-5 pickups deliver all the desirable tones, from high-gain metal to sparkling cleans and everything in between. The APH-1N at the neck is sensitive to pick attacks and makes the highs sing and sound thick, and the lows sound warm and buttery. The TB-5 is an overwound PAF-style bridge pickup with a bright upper-midrange, helping the notes jump out when playing clean, and provides greater harmonic content when playing with gain.[1]  Tonally, these Seymour Duncan pickups are one-of-a-kind and esthetically, their zebra parchment finish and sand-blasted pole pieces set their look apart from the rest.

The volume and tone knobs on the NashVegas Select guitars are positioned traditionally, but the 3-way toggle is uniquely positioned on the horn of the guitar for a consistent Dean vibe. So, while these guitars have a classic look, they’re 100% Dean from top to bottom.

The Dean NashVegas Select Series is priced competitively, with the Black Satin and Metallic Red Satin set at a street price of $749, and the Floyd Black Satin and Floyd Metallic Red Satin at a street price of $849.

Carl Tatz Design employs IsoAcoustics technology in new PhantomFocus monitors

Studio designer and monitoring expert Carl Tatz, principal of Carl Tatz Design® (CTD) (creator of the PhantomFocus™ line of Precision Monitoring Instruments), and Dave Morrison, president and founder of the IsoAcoustics® line of speaker isolation products, have announced the custom integration of IsoAcoustics’ award-winning pistonic decoupling technology into the new PhantomFocus PFM HD-1000 and PFM UHD-1000 Professional Reference Studio Monitors.

“Dave and I dialogued for a couple of years about how our two companies could work together, and the new PFM 1000 Series Professional Reference Monitors are the fruit of that collaboration. We could not be happier,” comments Tatz.

Dave Morrison adds, “We are very pleased to work with Carl to integrate IsoAcoustics into this exciting new series of monitors and be part of his mission to provide remarkable acoustic imaging and performance.”

Tatz continues, “The PFM 1000 Monitors are presented by our company as the zenith of near-field monitoring, and IsoAcoustics’ continuous R&D successes in the world of acoustic isolation blend perfectly with our mantra of sonic excellence.”

About the PhantomFocus™ System

Carl Tatz Design’s proprietary PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning protocol offers clients a unique opportunity to have a truly world-class monitoring experience in their room, no matter how modest.

There are approximately fifty steps in the proprietary PhantomFocus System implementation protocol, including phase alignment, system damping, speaker decoupling and isolation mounting, careful assessment of engineer/speaker placement relative to primary axial room modes, proprietary laser-calibrated speaker distancing and angle alignments, digitally-controlled crossover points and slopes for pass filtering, and, proprietary, multiband parametric equalization.
Hardware solutions can include monitor stands, concrete, Sorbothane™ and other isolation and damping materials, custom floating plenum mounts, subwoofer systems and custom digital processors. The PhantomFocus System evaluation and implementation is a full two-day process and can be applied to near-fields, mid-fields, and large soffit mounted monitors, regardless of manufacturer.
Carl Tatz Design installs the PhantomFocus System in existing control rooms and in all studios that are designed and built from the ground up by CTD. The result is like the aural equivalent of HD TV. Once you experience a PhantomFocus System, you can’t go back.

  • MIDI Out in real time (including Voice-to-MIDI)

OVox’s new MIDI Out feature enables you to play any virtual instrument (either by Waves or other manufacturers) using your voice, in real time. Whether you sing or hum melodies, OVox will convert your voice to MIDI, then send the MIDI out to the other instrument. You can also use the Note Mapper to quantize your MIDI to scale or generate hundreds of chord progressions easily. You can even route the other instrument as a carrier back to OVox, and then use OVox’s formant filter to modulate the other instrument. This strengthens OVox’s standing as the world’s most robust and feature-rich vocal synthesis tool for 2020, with even more creative vocal synthesis and sound design possibilities than ever before.

The new OVox update also adds 250 new presets, including 150 artist-presets from the music producers of Bon Iver, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Cardi B, and many more.

Use OVox as a plugin or standalone app to transform any vocal: Create rich vocoder, talkbox, harmonizer, pitch/tune, vocal arpeggiation effects and beyond, with superior sound quality and instant results.

OVox’s workflow is instant, with none of the difficult routing typical of other vocoders and vocal synthesizers. Just insert OVox as a plugin, or fire it up as a standalone app – sing, hum, speak or beatbox into it, and hear the magic happen. You can experiment and discover unique results with OVox on drums, bass and other instruments. It’s also an amazing sounding synth in its own right, even when not triggered by vocals or other external sounds.

Whether you’re a producer, musician or engineer, Waves OVox Vocal ReSynthesis enables an unprecedented palette of vocal synthesis and vocal morphing creativity.
