hi i own a uad-1 dsp-card (kind of like the powercore dsp) and
wanted to convolute (is this the right way to use the convolution
verb ?! :-D ) the excellent realverb pro, dreamverb. and also the
Fairchild 670 and universal audio 1176 LN compressors (both are
"as good as it gets" copies of the original very pricy vintage hardware
maybe even the pulteq eq.
so i was wondering which program to use to capture the sound of these
plugins the best so others can enjoy them or some lucky bastards even
compare them to the originals ;-)
the whole convolution thing is quite new to me, i know how to use the
impulses in a convolution plugin, but was wondering how to get started
to make my own impuls responses in combination with my uad-1 plugins.
some tips links would be apreciated :-)
after i have read my openingpost, just wanted to add that i am not
a salesman or marketeer for universal audio products whehehe ;-)
probably this topic has been done over and over again with just about the
same questions.... but i couldn't find a nice introduction into the matter
through the search-function. so some pointers or links would be very
First of all, you can't use convolution to capture dynamic processing (compressors, choruses, etc). You can capture reverbs (without modulation FX) and equalizers (phase and response coloration) only.
Deconvolver's manual contains a basic description on how to capture impulses.
For more 'basic' information (and impulse directory) I suggest you to visit http://www.noisevault.com/
You can actually use convolution to capture the sound of vintage Compressors.
What you end up with is an impulse of the way the hardware's electronics modifies the sound, and not the actual compression though.
The LA2A has been done.
Have a look on www.noisevault.com for both impulses and an excellent forum dealing with these topics.
