Particular proudly presents Spectrality – Dark Spatial Impulses. Building upon the knowledge we gathered over the last Spectrality AIR libraries we set out to create some really dark and twisted impulses - that still has that extra airy lushness to them. Suitable for just about any style craving great reverberation effects with a dark edge to them.
Created in the same way as the previous instalments - by playing very short bursts of broadband sounds through a diverse range of hardware effects - we now focused much more on dark tonal and resonant postprocessing, to get that dark twist and depth into the impulses. To keep the air, or sometimes artificially insert it, we used the same technique as in the AIR series and sweetspotted every impulses through a set of Pultec clone tube filters, a Clariphonic parallell filter and a set of Rupert Neve Portico 542:s tape saturators to get every impulse into ultimate shape before recording it.
Bear in mind that your convolution plugin through this process becomes a combination of reverb, high end equaliser and resonator - creating all kinds of responsive dark and eerie tones, chords and acoustical spaces for your sounds to shimmer through. Also, some impulses have a stronger inherent tone in the broadband noise, so watch your speakers - total alignment in pitch might cause recursive feedback.
In detail expect to find 149 impulses sorted into Large and Medium. As stated in the folder names the Medium impulses are between 6 - 15 seconds long and Large between 15 - 22 seconds long. Number in folders correlate to impulse length - the higher the number, the longer the impulse - across both folders. All in all 621 MB of 48 kHz 24 bit wavefiles.
All impulses in demo are loaded into SIR2 – by Christian Knufinke.
