    Getting the most out of Acoustic Mirror impulses?

    Hey all:

    I\'m considering getting away from my current reverb solution which is simply using Giga\'s NFX1 with the default settings (I know, sounds crazy). I\'d like to try out impulse files, but I haven\'t the slightest clue how to get the best result from these files. I read through the Acoustic Mirror section in the Sound Forge manual, and it\'s pretty straightforward. Are there any tricks I should know about? Does anyone use or create impulses that include head-related transfer functions? (HRTF)

    Thanks for any info!

    Just seen Ernest\'s new impule cd on his website and decided to buy it - please could anyone tell me the benefits of 192Khz 24 bits to 44.1khz 16 bits. There are several formats but which one to choose!?

    I think 24 bit 44.1 khz is the way to go. Most softwares allow you to convert to a 32 bit float internal resolution. There is an audible difference between 16 and 24 bit files.

    Do people use Accoustic Mirror like any other reverb unit, by that I mean adding diferent levels of verb to individual instruments ... or just as an overall reverb to give a semblance of all the instruments in the same accoustic space, during the final stages of mixing and mastering?

    I use it in combinations with other tools to get and overall sound. Usually its one of the last steps.

    I know of musicians who use both approaches. For orchestral ambience however, individual reverb and even different impulses on each orchestral section - brass, woodwinds, strings etc. will often give a more pleasing hall sound than using one impulse for the whole orchestra.

    Ernest, first of all thanks for the impulses on the GOS update which are fantastic. I am planning to buy your Pure Space Film RI CD which from your demos sounds incredible. I was wondering whether you could recommend some settings for use with these (like you say with the different choirs of the orchestra).

    Cool brewick !

    Last night I posted some orchestral solo instrument passages done with VSL. Bruce Mitchell sent me these passages the other day - thanks Bruce.

    If you go to http://www.numericalsound.com/purespac.html and scroll down to the \"Solo Orchestral Instruments with Ambience\" there are 7 examples. They include the wet/dry level and the delay of the wet signal relative to the dry in milli seconds.

    In the next couple of days I will try to post additional practical information on applying reverb to an orchestral instrument.
