  • Let's Talk Convolution Reverbs....

    ...and Impulse Response Libraries. I only recently got into convolution and I love it, the design possibilities are just awesome. So, I was wondering what your preferred reverb units are and impulse response libraries

    I'm currently using Liquidsonics Reverberate and I have 3 great libraries from Spirit Canyon Audio.

    Over to you.

    Convolution reverb: Voxengo Pristine Space http://www.voxengo.com/product/pspace/

    Libraries:
    Frozenplain Frostpoint http://www.frozenplain.com/products/frostfall/
    Spirit Canyon Audio - Kaleidoskopy
    Spirit Canyon Audio - Sanitarium
    Spirit Canyon Audio - Spectral Relativity

    By my preferred technique is using Voxengo and various samples/pads/textures as impulse responses (especially in Pristine Space true stereo setup)
    which gives me instant stream of wonderful drones.

      I take it you need jBridge or some other sort of bridger to run Pristine Space on a 64 bit system, given it's a 32 bit program? Surprised they don't offer a 64 bit version of this.

        I have it running on Reaper, I just started using this daw last week but the ability to have my 32 bit plugins running on 64 is great.

        I need to try out Pristine Space more.

          I Just bought the Voxengo Impulse Modeler, this allows you to create your own impulse responses and export them as .wav files. I literally just designed my first one and I'll test it out later but would anyone be interested in trying them once I have a few more?

            I'm highly interested. Please share them via DropBox.

              Speaking of Reaper, has anyone compared the Cockos "ReaVerb" convolution reverb included in Reaper to any of these pricier ones?

              Edit: I inadvertently typed ReaEQ first. Senior moment…I use ReaEQ on many tracks, and had it in my mind I guess...

                  Actually I hadn't but I've only been using Reaper for a week. I think I dig the Liquidsonics plugin because you can load and mod 2 wav files in one instance.

                    Voxengo Pristine Space loads and processes two impulses at once in "True Stereo" setting and it has eight slots for impulses in total.

                      Ah, I wasn't aware of that.

                      So far I've created 5 IR's, I plan to do a few more and maybe stretch and pitch a couple for fun then I'll upload to dropbox

                        So this is an example of what I've done IR wise, just a test really.

                          Sorry, I meant "ReaVerb". I think you can load more than one IR file to be processed one on top of the other, not sure, gotta RTFM! I know for sure that you can add an echo generator on top of the IR. As far as modulation, there are no plug-in specific controls, but in Reaper you can use parameter automation/modulation on almost every parameter of any of any plug-in. For ReaVerb:
                          Screen Shot 2014-11-29 at 9.49.20 AM.png
                          To get to the automation for a track, click on the track automation button for that track (a smallish button with an envelope icon...hover the mouse cursor over the buttons to see the hints). Then you can scroll through all the parameters for each plug-in on that track. Click on the "Mod…" button for the parameter you want to modulate and it will pop up a modulation dialog box. Checking LFO or Audio control signal radio buttons in this dialog pop up further dialogs with settings for the LFO or audio control signal envelope.

                          Not as elegant as Pristine Space I'm sure, but it's free if you have Reaper, and it has more possibilities than apparent at first look. Reaper is somewhat labyrinthine, it took me a long time to figure this out…should RTFM more!!

                            You sure can, I think I had about eight randome wave files loaded once, godawful racket.

                            I guess I'm not very academic about it, just try strange combinations. Breaking glass is good, sustained string sounds or vocals can be lovely, beats and drum loops give the verb an interesting rhythmic kick. I had some speech samples loaded once that sounded great. Obviously they retrigger each time so you get that stuttery, scratchy effect thing going. Or the bastard offspring of JMJ Zoolook LP... ;)

                              I've never used convolution reverb ... I think I should try it out:daydream:
