Maybe going to Abbey Road would be pretty pointless, as you only get SOME ambience there - I don\'t know the figures, but not a big hall sound certainly. When they record orchestras at Abbey Road they add Lexicon 480L and stuff.
So what your impulse of Abbey Road will contain is, theoretically, the same kind of ambience which is already present in many libraries - the ambience that we later add reverb to, using an impulse or a reverb effect
Recording concert hall and church ambiences would be more interesting.
