BPB is proud to host a collection of reverb and echo impulse responses provided by Animus Invidious. The impulses were captured from a BOSS GT-8 guitar processor and are offered as AIF files and Ableton Convolution Reverb presets.
As described by Animus, all the BOSS GT-8 reverbs transferred well, except for the “spring” setting, which lost its reactiveness and doesn’t really sound like a spring reverb anymore. The “plate” setting sounds particularly nice.
The delay effects were set to various shorter “slapback echo” settings so as to be useful on a wide range of materials and not just specific tempos. Other miscellaneous effects resulted in convolutions that sound quite different than the original effect and have been named & categorized according to the transformed sound.
The pack contains the following impulse responses:
- Hall 1
- Hall 2
- Echo Analog
- Echo Analog Whacked
- Echo Dual Parallel
- Echo Dual Series
- Echo Ping
- Echo Pong
- Echo Single
- Echo Warp
- Wet Tape
- Woosh A
- Woosh F
- Woosh M
- Woosh R
- Woosh S
- Woosh W
The download pack contains AIF files with individual impulse responses and a single ALP file with all the IR presets for Ableton Live users. The total size of the pack is 281 MB when extracted.
If you’re looking for a free reverb IR loader to use with these impulse responses, take a look at the Reverberate LE plugin by LiquidSonics. It is the most feature-packed and CPU-effective freeware convolution reverb available today.
Animus Invidious has released numerous Ableton devices on his website PerforModule. An interesting example of his work is Chopper, a free Ableton effect that chops incoming audio in sync with the host tempo.
Many thanks to Animus Invidious for publishing his free BOSS GT-8 impulse collection on BPB!
