Celestion Speaker Shaper

USD 49 USD 99


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, these high-quality Celestion speakers 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. Tweak your favorite speakers or bring your dream rig to life. Either way, Celestion Speaker Shaper will blow you away.


The Art of Rock & Roll Science

Softube has a long history modeling professional gear. Our 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, our reputation is rock solid.

This legacy is the foundation of Celestion Speaker Shaper. When creating it, we took the exacting approach we have become known for: expert modeling, precise testing, and careful fine-tuning. Because to create software that is equal to or innovates on the original gear, everything must be perfect. Nothing less.


"I can’t believe the sounds I’m getting from this thing! Unbelievable! Celestion and Softube are a match made in hell! My guitar tones have never been better."

Daniel Bergstrand
Producer (Behemoth, Meshuggah, In Flames)

Native Speaker

Phenomenal speaker sounds, optimized workflow, and more flexibility and control than you ever thought possible. In partnership with Celestion, we bring you an officially licensed plug-in 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.


English Speaker

Ever wanted to play an 8x24″ 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 aging them to your specs, you can change the speaker magnet material and determine how it will behave. Experiment with Ferrite M and H, AlNiCo, and Neodymium to shape your speaker sound in ways only Speaker Shaper can.


Motivational Speaker

With Celestion Speaker Shaper, you get eight classic microphones to fine-tune. 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 lets you 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.


Speaker of the House

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 plug-in and as a module in Amp Room, the pro audio guitar and bass platform. In Amp Room, you can couple it with other plug-ins and modules, such as our 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 sub-menus—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.

  • System requirements

    All Softube products require a computer with appropriate DAW host software (none of which are included).

    Versions from 2.5.38 and newer of the Softube plug-ins have the following minimum requirements:

    All native versions

    • Mac OS X 10.13 up to 12
    • Windows 10 and 11 64-bit 
    • Mac: Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon / Full Apple silicon support (M1 or higher)
    • Windows: Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon / AMD Quad-Core or newer
    • Screen resolution larger than 1280x800
    • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space)
    • Softube account
    • iLok account
    • Internet access for downloading installers and managing licenses
    • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use an iLok key for authorizing your plug-ins (note that a physical iLok USB key is not a requirement)

    In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (Pro Tools 11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work. However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - and our own rigorous testing standards - we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro ToolsLogic ProCubaseAbleton LiveStudio OneReaper, and Cakewalk. Softube plugins are not tested in non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

    Note: We have checked the basic functionality of our plug-ins, and Softube Central, under Apple Rosetta 2.

    With regards to the different VST formats, we strongly recommend using VST3 as some of our plug-ins have features that are not present in the older VST format. Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo. The most recent maintenance release of your DAW application is recommended. AAX DSP is not currently in active development. TDM/VENUE is no longer supported (old downloads are available on the Legacy Installers page).

    Find the Softube installer you need both Softube Central and individual plug-ins.

    AAX DSP version

    • For AAX DSP you need to meet the above requirements for the Native versions. You also need to have an Avid HDX processing card. For plug-ins available for AAX DSP, see Which Softube plug-ins support AAX DSP?
