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. Dr. Scott D.
