A new impulse response collection for convolution reverb plug-ins 23/05/07
Best Service have released Halls of Fame, a collection of Impulse Responses from the worldâ€˜s most famous reverb units that they say will take your convolution reverb plug-in to the next level. They say that they were produced on state-of-the-art equipment for maximum resolution, ultra-low noise levels and pristine, transparent sound quality.
Best Service tell us that, using tailor-made test and production methods, the people at the Soniclab studio obtained stunning audio quality that actually matches that of the original equipment. 32 Bit True stereo technology was used to accurately reflect the signal positions, leaving the soundstage of the mix intact. Deconvolution side effects were EQâ€™d out carefully, and no automatic batch processing was used.
Since all processing and editing work was done in 32 bit floating point format, the 32 bit files provide the ultimate in sound quality but Best Service say that the 24 bit versions of all the presets are almost as impressive and are ideal if your plugin cannot handle 32 bit files.
The DVD multi-format library features all the L96 and T600C hardware reverb presets in Wave and AIFF formats, and also Wave files of the Altiverb 5-6 format. All files come in 32-bit and 24-bit versions at 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz.
Some presets offer the choice of longer or shorter reverb time too, and some IRs even offer Early Reflections / Tail Only.
A complete set of HDIR models are included: Ambience, Booth, Cathedral, Chambers, Church, Concert Hall, Dance Club, Halls of Fame Collection, Opera House, Music Hall, Philharmonic Hall, Plates, Post Production, Rooms, Stage & Hall, Stage & Chamber, Scoring Stage, Large Hall, Studio Small, Wild Spaces, Vocal Plates and much more.
