Check out Samplicity’s free Bricasti M7 impulses for convolution reverb plugins like Space Designer (Logic), Waves IR-1 and Altiverb. Peter Roos has created free (i.e. Bricasti M7) and paid (i.e. T600 and L96) impulse responses that give mixers excellent choices when adding reverb to their tracks. Check out the demos page for an A/B comparison of the paid IR libraries . Share this link with your DAW friends and enjoy!
Update 1/2/11 4:45 PT: If you’re looking for Logic’s Space Designer or Waves’s IR-1 presets to use with the Bricasti M7 IR’s, go to http://www.acousticas.net/World/IRs/AcousticasM7.zip, which downloads the IR’s with the presets (it took me several attempts to complete the download). The link works for now, but Acousticas has taken down their site since August and there’s no way of knowing when this link will stop working. The Acousticas link is a more convenient solution for now until someone creates DAW presets for Peter Roos’s IR’s. (Update 6/9/11: Acousticas link is officially dead.)
Note: There’s a mistake in the Acousticas Logic readme file regarding where to put the IR’s. Copy the “Bricasti M7” folder from the “Acousticas Impulses” folder and paste to:
Macintosh HD: Library: Audio: Impulse Responses: “Bricasti M7”
For the Logic presets, copy the “Bricasti M7” folder from the “Logic Presets: PST Files Bricasti” folder and paste to:
Macintosh HD: Users: : Library: Application Support: Logic: Plug-In Settings: Space Designer: “Bricasti M7”
