impulse responses

Chris (and other List Members):

There is a terrific plug-in for Sonic Foundry's "Sound Forge" audio editing
software called "Acoustic Modeler" that makes the creation of such impulse
transfers trivial.  One simply records an impulse sound, plays this
recording back in any acoustical environment while capturing the original
sound with reverberant characteristics added, opens both sound files in the
Acoustic Modeler, and the software carries out the calculations for the
initial reflections, early reflections, and reverberation ... absolutely
amazing.  Once saved, one can apply this "impulse file" to any other digital
audio file.

Subject: transfer functions for small concert rooms

I am looking for freely available transfer functions of small to very
small concert rooms, for some standard arrangement (listener in the
midst of auditorium, sender on the stage), preferably as finite impulse
response so that I could apply them to synthetic or anechoically
recorded signals in order to produce the effect as if these were
recorded in this concert room.

Thanks in advance,
Christian Kaernbach
