    Provided by Studio Nord, Bremen Germany. The reverb impulses are on the bottom of the page. You will also find a bunch of guitar & bass amp cabinets.

    How do you like them?

    Thanks for asking! So far I tried the Plate ones and they do sound really good, they have nice density without that low frequency mushy bump you often hear in badly captured plate IRs.

    They do not only work great on snares, they can really work as the main reverb in the mix. I will test the Goldfoil and Spring pack later when I'm back home.

    Goldfoil and Spring not working here unfortunately, my convolution reverbs fail to load them.

    I just made a quick test with ReaVerb, all worked perfectly fine.

    I tried them in ConvologyXT, MConvolutionEZ and IRDust, no luck. Maybe Reaverb is more forgiving with non-standard .wavs?

    Looks like, some audio applications seem to have problems with these files.

    Thank you Hazen for sharing this. They are working here in ReaVerb as well.

    Did you drag the files into Reapers timeline or load them into Reaverb?

    Worked both here. Also I can't imagine that only one of these are working. ReaVerb is a very simple IR player, as far as I got it.

    In my case only the Plate IRs are working. Goldfoil and Spring IRs are not recognised by 3 different IR loaders. Over at KVR soneone posted a screenshot showing that Spring IRs are in a different file format from the Plate ones, despite both being .wavs

    I was referring to timeline vs ReaVerb.

    I try to load it using Waves IR. I tried 3 version, Mono, Mono To Stereo, and Stereo. When I load the Springs IR (the only one Ive downloaded from the sites for testing). Every one of them failed to load (with and without normalization) and eventually crashed Reaper. I tried 10 of them, all same results. I try to load my other IRs in between and Waves IR worked okay.

    I have the suspection that they are not regular .wav, but rather .aif! Does Waves IR load regular .aif? Then maybe try changing the file extension of the IR file from .wav to .aif and reload in Waves IR.

    According to the manual not.

    But you can simply 'convert' all these files to true wav, no prob.

    ahhh, probably that. thanks for pointing it out. I might have ignored the file types and assumed it was all the usual wav files, after all the file extension is hidden for "known" type file in Win10 aite. my bad then. already deleted those, will try again. anyway, if im lazy to convert, can someone suggest to me IR loader that can handle aif ?

    Well, if you're already using Reaper -> ReaVerb.
