Create Impulse Responses using Ableton Live effects
This video explores how to create an Impulse Response (IR) using Ableton effects.
This is a powerful sound design technique that goes beyond the conventional uses of IR’s such as simulating acoustic spaces. Using the free Max for Live IR Measurement Device and some stock Ableton Live devices we look at the signal flow, creation and application of this technique.
Taking a “snapshot” of an effect or an effects chain allows you to go beyond conventional processing, often with surprising results.
