These look awesome. Seems they aren't generic impulses and have to be used with the player. I've been on the hunt for something like a large collection of interesting impulses. mostly real spaces. That aren't tied to an expensive plugin and are relatively affordable. Weird or unique ones especially.

I'm looking for the IR from the EB16/EB16FX Akai effect card. I know its reverb is not the best, but it has character :)

Having crawled around in the Great Pyramid, I suspect that IRs are going
to be disappointing to you. Have a look at the cross-section diagrams.
All the chambers are small rooms and the shafts/corridors are too small to
stand up in (about 1 - 1.5 meters square). The only places where you could
separate mics for stereo would be in the chambers. Well, maybe the underground
unfinished chamber would get you something, but the randomly shaped floor
is probably not good for reflections, etc, and it isn't very large.

The only internal space that I know of that might be of (minor) interest is the
Grand Gallery. It would sound like a long, narrow, stone church. It's not at all wide.

Someone recorded an album, some of which used the Great Pyramid as an echo chamber. It's got some complexity, but it's basically corridors (single delay lines) in a very simple configuration.
I'll stay tuned, because I'd love to hear an IR from the GP. Speaking of giant ancient structures,
I have a set of IRs from the round, domed, Hagia Sophia mosque (built originally as a Catholic church). The IRs are as clear as mud. Think about it. Circular space.

On a happier note, the Teufelsberg Tower IRs are sort of interesting and there are several. Check them out. https://sonicfield.org/free-teufelsberg ... responses/

I'm actually wondering whether someone was in fact allowed to shoot some IRs there.
I seem to remember to stumble over some supposed-to-be-real Taj Mahal IRs a rather long time ago. Same thing - are they real?
I mean, we're talking about some of the most iconic buildings, one being used as a mosque, the other as a mausoleum. I don't think the caretakers would be too amazed in case multiple sharp impulses (or sweeps) would be fired off inside. Let alone the placement of proper mics.
