Spectrality – Spatial AIR Impulses. Containing recordings of glittering chambers, airy halls and resonating spaces – ranging from the tiniest of closets to the truly cavernous and interstellar. Suitable for just about any style craving great reverberation effects with a twist – and that extra high end airy richness to them. Created in the same way as the previous instalments – by playing very short sounds through a diverse range of hardware effects – we now focused much more on broadband noises and airy postprocessing, to get that extra depth and clarity into the impulses. More specifically we kept on swapping a set of Pultec clone tube filters, a Clariphonic parallell filter and a set of Rupert Neve Portico 542:s tape saturators to get every impulse into it’s sweetspot before recording it.
Bear in mind that your convolution plugin through this process becomes a combination of reverb, high end equaliser and resonator – creating all kinds of weird and beautiful acoustic spaces for your sounds to shimmer through. Also, some impulses have a stronger inherent tone in the broadband noise, so watch your speakers – total alignment in pitch might cause recursive feedback. In detail expect to find 175 impulses sorted into Large, Medium and Small. Number in folders correlate to impulse length – the higher the number, the longer the impulse. All in all 249 MB of 48 kHz 24 bit wave files.
