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 “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 material and not just specific tempos. Other miscellaneous effects resulted in convolutions which 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. 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 which 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!
