Best IR Impulse Responses for Music Mixing & Mastering
Lucky them we are clever enough to digitise our beautiful analog equipment!! We decided to use convolution as our medium – so you will need a convolution loader, Like Kilohearts Convolver, Meldas ConvolutionMB – or Audiothing’s Fog Convolver. They are all excellent in their own specific ways – and all very fairly priced bits of software.
We started out by developing our vintage Alice 828 mixer – taking each channel & sampling varying degrees of saturation – we then sampled mic channels then the bus with & without limiters – there’s a whole bunch of mojo to be had right inside your daw!
Next we sampled our beautiful Orban 622 mixing & mastering eq using setting we use in our (rather fantastic) productions – so you not only get our hardware – you also get our secret sauce settings! Just to over ice this particular cake – we then took some samples going first into our amazing military spec transformers to add a bit of posh saturation. Next up was this:
Our supercool vintage Camel Guitar Amp – we sampled this bad boy with three types of mic – shure 57, B&O Ribbon Mic (which the Royer was based on) & a Telefunken condenser. They can of course be used as regular guitar amp IR’s – but the real beauty of them is revealed when you drop them on unsuspecting subjects – such as the ribbon settings on overheads, the dynamic settings on soft synths & the condenser settings on vocals & guitars – they all add a bit of je ne sais quoi – a bit of something extra to take your productions up a few notches
