Have a look at our detailed tutorial about impulse responses, recording sweeps. This is the first part of the tutorial. We'll have a look at the principles of convolution reverb, the difference between stereo, true stereo and multichannel impulse responses.
Room Tones: no matter where we are, they are there as well. They usually go unnoticed, but they surround us constantly. They are our daily companions. They are everywhere. Always. They are here with me right now and they are with you too, as you read these lines. They stay in the background, but they are there. They are the low hum of a computer, the continuous whir of a vent, the consistent noise of a fan, the sound of an electric device. They are the sum of an infinite number of reflections, i.e. static noise. Read more about the Soundeffects.ch Room Tones Sound Library
For our new surround sound archive, which appears in the spring of 2013, we have added a new set of impulse responses. In this context, we have decided to consider the new 3D sound formats. What does this mean and how complex it is, was aware only gradually. Now, the first impulse responses for surround sound formats and 3D are finished and time to share a few impressions. Read here about our experience with impulse responses.
I will write a complete tutorial about creating impulse responses once this series of impulse responses is finished. More info can be found on this website. Alternatively, you can follow us on Google Plus.

With much higher mp3 resolution for all preview tracks from this great collection, it is now possible to hear a better and much more detailed preview than before. Naturally, mp3 quality is still inferior to the original file and we still recommend that you to wear headphones. But we believe the new quality will preserve enough details from the original file for an acceptable preview.

Sound recordings made in Berlin in late May 2012 are the latest addition to the 'City Sound Collection' (due for release later this year). They will be bundled with recordings made in Hamburg and Munich (2011) as well as winter recordings made in Berlin in 2011. The new summer atmosphere recordings will complete the sound collection of German cities.
Despite the rather enthusiastic weather report, the plane I was on went through some turbulence during the landing approach. I quickly realized my trip was going to be a windy affair! When I finally arrived in downtown Berlin, I had only two choices: sit out the wind or look for other recording locations. I decided to do the latter, as sitting around wasn't going to get me anywhere. So instead of waiting for the wind to subside, I went looking for interesting interiors to record.
More information will uploaded soon.
