Impulse based reverb through deconvolution – Part 2 – using the impulse response to produce reverberations
This is the second post in a series of articles about deconvolving a reverberated sound to get the impulse response of natural reverberations and then using this impulse response as the artificial reverb. In the previous post we created the impulse response of an example reverb. In this post we will take a short sound – a drum hit – and we will reverberate it with the impulse response developed before. Later, we will take the reverberated drum and we will pretend that we do not know the impulse response. We will try to recreate the impulse response and see how well we do. As a reminder, it should be possible to record the natural reverb of a short sound, such as a drum hit, in a room or a hall and to deconvolve this natural reverb to create an artificial reverb.
A short drum sound may look something like this.
