a quick tutorial video on how to create an impulse response

Dec 12 2012 | 2:55 pm

Dear all

Thanks to Rodrigo Constanzo we have the first video tutorial of how to use and abuse the fruit of the HIRT (the HISS Impulse Response Toolbox). This time round, it is the basic use of capturing an impulse response with some of the tools for MaxMSP.

Feel free to watch it here:

The paper and all the externals are still available here:

Let us know what you think!


ps for those who prefer youtube, it will soon be up there too!

This is a great video! I am looking forward to seeing more,
especially room correction.

I would also love to see some videos on using these
tools to create new timbres. For example live instruments
convolved with interesting sounds.

Yes please I’d love the patch from the video. Great, clear presentation; and great externals.

This is very cool guys, good workings!

Howdie all.

Definitely more tutorial vids coming. The next one will be speaker/room correction stuff, and a couple down the road will be creative and non-linear convolution stuff.

Here’s the patch:

Trying to figure out how to extract the IR into a stereo wav file to be used in other plugins (like max 4 live Convolution Reverb Pro). Cant figure it out :(

That’s what I would be very interested in as well. I’m going to check out the patches now and see what gives. I need a handy IR creation thingy, since buying Altiverb is just out of the question for me right now and you can basically do anything with Max if you try hard enough… Any tips from the smart people, on how to extract a stereo .wav ? :)

Ok Sidora, I made an OS X .app which I hope does what you want it to. You should be able to just run this and work away without even having to boot Max, and save .AIFF’s as you go along. It’s merely an adaptation of the Max4Live patch which is included with Live and %99.99999 of the credit should not go to me. But rather the HISS crew at The University of Huddersfield.

Let me know what you think and the download link is towards the bottom of my post .

Thanks guys.
