I just found this Source: https://zenodo.org/record/2638644 while looking for Headphone Compensation Filters ...

---

The Audio Spatialisation for Headphones Impulse Response Dataset (ASH IR Dataset) is a set of impulse responses that can be used for binaural synthesis of spatial audio systems on headphones. It includes binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs), headphone compensation filters (HpCFs) and configuration files for Equalizer APO. The dataset can be used to create virtual surround sound on headphones by convolving an audio stream with a set of BRIRs.

The dataset contains:

A set of equalised binaural room impulse responses that can be used to simulate a variety of rooms including control rooms, listening rooms, seminar rooms, studios, and more

A set of compensation filters that can be used to equalise a wide range of headphones to the diffuse-field target frequency response

A set of configuration files for Equalizer APO that can be used to simulate common speaker configurations (Stereo, 5.1 surround, 7.1 surround) within the rooms

More information can be found at https://github.com/ShanonPearce/ASH-IR-Dataset

An example of 1 of the 400 Impulse Responses available in Prime Sonic Space V.1-2.
The Impulse Responses from PSS are compatible with Altiverb and most other IR plugins.

This preset is called: Reverse Unfold and you can see its unique shape in Altiverb.

The entire collection was made entirely with 24-32 bit Impulse Responses, making it one of the highest quality Impulse Response libraries available.

Releasing now is the Dr Bonkers Guitar Cab-Oddities™ Volume 20: DLTA 4X12 Guitar Cab IR Collection based upon a Harry Kolbe Soundsmith® Concert™ 800w Straight 4X12 Guitar Amp Cab Impulse Response (IR) files. This cabinet included 4 Eminence® Delta Pro 12A™ 12 inch 400 watt 8 Ohm speakers manufactured in USA. Available in Fractal Audio file and various WAV file formats.

This type of cab/speaker combination was the choice at one time of Buckethead, Paige Hamilton, Andy Hawkins of Blind Idiot God, & Biohazard.

As usual there are sound clips and pictures on my site. Click on the pull down menus and pop out tabs (words with a grey background) for lots of info including history and famous players who used such a cab. If English is not your first language, click on the translate button at the top of my site for many language options.

As part of restoration work on some choral recordings made in the late 1950s in the cathedrals of Arundel and Ely, I went to visit these two buildings last Summer to make recordings of the acoustic 'signatures' (otherwise known as impulse responses) of these buildings. Impulse response can be used in sampling reverberators (such as the free SIR VST plugin). There are three impulse responses: one taken in the nave of Arundel, one taken in the choir of Ely and one taken in the Lady Chapel at Ely. They are in 44.1 kHz, 24 bit .wav format

And here you can find my curated list of some of the most useful free impulse response collections currently available. Includes impulses of analog & hardware devices, as well as many real spaces and places (outdoors and indoors).
