Anomaly - Dark Places IR is Westgatesounds.net's first Impulse Response library.

There will be several volumes to follow - featuring a mixture of IR files that favour treatment as Reverbs and Experimental FX.

This first volume focuses on the Reverb aspect, as well as changing the colour (Freq Response) of the sound.

Dark Places consists of 72 sounds from the Anomaly Vol. 1 folder Dark Places to be used as Impulse Responses.

To make these, the first 12 seconds of each sound were taken - fading out at the end. As the Anomaly sounds in general are very bass heavy, each sound had some of the lows removed to combat against resonant frequencies and to allow the higher frequencies to interact as reverb.

Each sound was then taken into AudioThing's Fog Convolver and exported as a slightly shorter .wav file - all between 7 to 9 seconds long. These new files became the Dark Places IR files.

Each IR file was given a preset in Fog Convolver that set the length of the IR file and the Freq Respnse of the IR file with Fades applied where required. This means that you can alter the time of the impulse response - I preferred to keep them short in the presets - but also move along the response file to use different areas of it as well. You can also shape the colour of the reverb effect by altering the Freq Response - the setting for the High Pass and Low Pass Filters.

All sounds were normalized to -15 dB in order to keep them as a reverb behind the sound being played through Fog Convolver. You have the ability within Fog Convolver to increase the gain of the IR file by 6 dB if you want to bring it out more.Future Volumes of Anomaly IR's will have two sets of files - one at -15 dB for Reverb FX and one at normal volume for experimental purposes.

Dark Places IR Files - 72 .wav files - 96.3 Mb - 72 presets for AudioThing Fog Convolver.

The .wav files should also be useable in any Convolution Reverb.

Audio demos are already up and more are coming.....

The Anomaly>convolves<Anomaly (autosarcophagy) demos sound great! There's a gazillion IRs but nothing like this. Nice to see many future volumes. I wonder how it will sound with a solo violin...from a catacomb deep beneath the theatre.

Started working with the Disturbances files today and I realized that the pricing for Dark Places is off....

It has been dropped to $12.

Disturbances, Darkness, Shadows and Spirits will all have two folders of sounds.

Voices and Wasteland will be a combined release.

Changed the topic title and made it a sticky.

I have finished the Disturbances 1 folder and am working my way through making the Fog Convolver presets for the "Reverb" section. The "Experimental" section, with the louder .WAV files will remain a blank slate for your own experiments.

Just to note - in Fog Convolver, at least for me, when I try to save a preset that already has a category assigned (Reverb), it strips the category away and I have to manually edit the preset file to put the category back in.

I am very happy with the results so far so I am looking at this as a long term project. I hope to finish most of the work on Disturbances before the end of the month before I get back to making 500 or more presets for Anomaly Vol. 1 for Kontakt and Absynth.

Started working on Vol. 3 - Darkness today.

Have the first 30 sounds of the first folder done. This one will not be finished as quickly as I am still technically on a break for the next few days and then start working on the next 500 Multis for Anomaly Vol. 1 for Kontakt.
