Matt Rogalsky has made some interesting impulse responses available. Quoting his email to the cec-c mailing list:
For anyone who can make use of them – some impulse responses I recorded last year.
The first set is from the larger of two 19th century water reservoirs in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. In recent years this has been a venue for sound installations, produced by Singuhr Hörgalerie. The network of circular brick chambers creates interesting echo patterns and long reverb times.
The second set is from another structure also dating to the 19th c. Fort Jay is an old military installation on Governor’s Island, just off the tip of Manhattan in NYC. These recordings were made in various rooms of its former ammunition magazine. Stone/concrete walls and floors give fairly long reverb times. There are also two IRs from shots fired in the courtyard of the fort, as part of visitor demonstrations of Civil War era drills.
Free for non-commercial use… if you find a place for them, let me know!
I’ll leave these in my dropbox for awhile.
