Following on from IR001 GLASS, this library of impulse responses explores the acoustics of 70 metal objects via three specific approaches:
1. Empty Metal Object IRs
Ranging in size and scale from a tiny soda can to a huge grain silo, sweeps were captured using an MKH8020 mics, stereo where possible with the large objects, while the very small objects were captured using a DPA4060 mic.
2. Pitch shifted IRs at half speed & quarter speed.
Processed versions of each IR are included, pitch shifting and slowing the IR to half speed and quarter speed to expand its use with a wider range of source material via easy preview.
3. Iterated IRs
As per GLASS IR001, I iterated the process by playing the captured IR back into the same object.
In total, this collection contains 540 24bit 96kHz Impulse Responses.
Check out the Making Of video to get a very rapid idea of their use applied to a beat and to DX. There are also soundcloud previews of every IR below.
Also Note: Presets for Logic Space Designer are now included, to allow faster browsing and audition!
These IRs have been tested in the following Convolution plugins.
AudioEase Altiverb – check their great Pipe IRs video
Apple Space Designer – Logic or Mainstage
Ableton Convolution Reverb
Melda Production MConvolutionEZ (free)
Impulse Record Convology XT (free)
Please check the manual for your specific IR plugin to verify where these custom IRs should be stored.
