Hollywood Sound Impulse Response Collection


Press Release

January  2014 - Numerical Sound, a developmental leader in innovative audio products like DNA Groove Templates, Drone Archeology, and critically acclaimed Reverb Impulse Responses (convolution reverbs), announces the release of their newest product, the high resolution Hollywood Sound Impulse Response Collection.

Tailored for film composers, recording engineers and post-production houses, the Hollywood Sound Impulse Response Collection comes with 241 combination early reflection/reverb tail impulses plus 27 bonus reverb tail only impulses.  These accurately match the  scoring stage sizes of such recording venues as Abbey Road, Air Lyndhurst, the Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage at Sony, and others.

The Hollywood Sound Impulse Response Collection does not imitate these existing scoring stages and studios, but rather, through a proprietary convolution process, offers a larger than life high resolution alternative in 24bit with one bundle including both 44.1k or 48k .wav files and a second package containing 88K and 96k high resolution .wav files.

The complex Early Reflections start with an intimate 52ms followed by 73ms, 100ms, 125 ms, 150ms, and finally a dramatic 200ms. Early reflections are grouped by three colors: brighter, darker and warm.   

These six ER's, each with its own three colors, are then applied to these reverb tail lengths: .7s, .85s, 1.0s, 1.2s, 1.5s, 2.0s, 3.0s, 4.0s, and 5.0 seconds. These tails have super wide stereo fields and richness of space with no trace of the direct or dry signal which is common in many IR's currently available. This richness adds a 3-dimensional quality to any  orchestral instrument (live or virtual) but can also be used with any style: live or virtual audio track.

Thus, these ER/Reverb Tail combinations enable any composer, engineer or post-production house using an A/B comparison approach to create a larger than life high resolution sound quickly.

Two Hollywood Sound Impulse Collection packages are available direct from Numerical Sound and selected vendors. The first is the 44.1/44k package with 241 ER/Tail combinations plus 27 bonus “tails only” per audio format, for a total of 536 impulses.

The second Hollywood Sound Impulse Collection is 88K and 96K that comes with 241 ER/Tail combinations and 27 bonus “tails” for a total of 536 impulses in all.

Both products are available for immediate download. Can be used in any convolution reverb.





Mike Verta orchestral example

Crimson Lake composed by Mike Verta www.mikeverta.com Three ER's were used.  Violins 1, 2 and Violas were sent to "040_ER73ms_1s5_Bright_48k.wav"   Cellos and Bassed  sent to “175_ERa200ms_1s5_Bright_48K.wav” and master channel strip has a convolution insert with 004_ER52ms_0s85_Brighter_48k.wav”  for a overall reverb 0dB wet and 0dB dry level.



Similar to above but compelety dry version with no reverb.



Tom Tom Drums example

This example includes two sends the first the ER "007_ER52ms_1s0_Brighter_48k.wav"  and the second a tail
"255_Tail_A_1s5_Darker_48K.wav"



Only a ER is used "001_ER52ms_0s7_Brighter_48k.wav"



The version is the dry version with no reverb.




  French Horn example from Mahler
Mahler This is the French Horn ensemble intro from Mahler's 3rd Symphony Movement 1. Impulse response  "148_ERb150ms_1s5_Bright_48K.wav" was used which has a 150ms ER a hall size of 1.5 seconds and a bright overall character.



The same Mahler passage with with impulse response "149_ERb150ms_1s5_Darker_48K.wav" which has a 150ms ER a hall size of 1.5 seconds and a dark overall character.



The same Mahler passage but with no reverb - 100% dry.



Beethoven Orchestral Excerpt

First two orchestral passages from Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58. The Strings were rendered with LASS (v1.5) with "The Hollywood Sound Timbral Impulse: LASS Edition" Natural Far Perspective.
Three ER's were used for the ambence.  Violins 1, 2 and Violas were sent to 073_ER100ms_3s0_Bright_48K.wav 2  Cellos and Bassed  sent to “161_ERb150ms_5s0_Darker_48K.wav” and master channel strip has a convolution insert with “001_ER52ms_0s7_Brighter_48k.wav”  for a overall reverb -8dB wet and 0dB dry level.



The same as the above but with the more reverb added so you can hear the richness of the ambience.



The dry version with no reverb.
