Convolution relies on measured impulse responses to bring the sound of another…space to our tracks.…We need to recognize that every impulse response we load into our convolution…engine was measured by someone else.…Mistakes might be made, and a flawed impulse response will produce flawed reverb.…We must seek out the best impulse responses and watch out for poorly measured ones.…No single impulse response describes an entire hall.…The impulse response, that signature pattern of reflections for a hall, depends on…the location of the sound source and the location of the receiver and the state…of occupancy of the hall.…
Picture a concert hall with a stage for all the musicians and about 2,000 seats…out on the orchestra floor for the audience.…The impulse response is unique from each and every instrument location on stage…to each and every seat location.…So while someone might offer you the impulse response for your convolution…reverb from some famous hall that you know and admire, there is no guarantee that…
These techniques can be practiced with the free Get in the Mix sessions, currently available for Pro Tools and Logic Pro.
