Samplicity’s Bricasti M7 Impulse Response Library v1.1

Samplicity has created a new Impulse Response Library, using the immensely popular and highly acclaimed Bricasti M7 reverb unit. And again, Samplicity has created a very complete, accurate and excellently sounding set of impulse responses, all in True Stereo and in Mono-to-Stereo. This library surpasses all previously released Bricasti IRs in terms of signal-to-noise ratios and detailed and rich reverb tails.

This library is completely FREE, to comply with the request from Bricasti that it is allowed to create impulse responses with the M7, as long as these IRs are not included in any commercial product.

Bricasti is a registered trademark of Bricasti Design Ltd., Medford MA, USA.

This library includes True Stereo and Mono-to-Stereo IRs of 134 M7 presets. The library is organized in the same way as the Samplicity L96 and T600 libraries (each also a 2 Gb downloadable product).

Download instructions

Select and download the most appropriate format version for your convolution plugin. All Zip files contain the same presets, but differ with respect to bit depth, sampling rate and file format or filename. So, you do not need to download all files! Unpack the library folder from the Zip file and copy it to an appropriate location in your IR folders. Consult the documentation for your convolution plugin if you are not sure how your IRs should be organised. If required, make sure your plugin (like Altiverb) makes a scan of the added library folders.

Make sure to klick the plus sign at +41 question number 41. There’s a whole lot there which I didn’t think belong here. Deep tissue reverb talk, and then some.

Mats Eriksson January 31, 2011 at 10:47 am

Well done!
Now, we’re only waiting for somone to do impulse responses from Quantec Yardstick reverbs or Room Simulators (QRS). And get away with it! that’s the hardest part.

Emanuel February 2, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Thanks for your comment, Mats!

Do you think these guys are aggressive when it comes to making IRs from their stuff?
I had some initial problems with TCE, but ultimate it only boils down to not mention their trademarks. Making IRs has nothing to do with their proprietary algorithms AND it is done by recording sine sweeps through their units, for which they are sold ;-)

Cheers,
Peter

Mats Eriksson February 24, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I dont know how aggressive they are. I know only this from their FAQ:
__________________
Q: Finally, it looks to me that there’s no feasible way to counterfeit the QUANTEC Room Simulation algorithm by means of a convolution plug-in?

A:Sure enough, there is one dedicated configuration where a convolution clone would be 100% identical. The idea is to just lever out the uncapturable “Crosstalk Domain”. Take care of feeding your Yardstick always with a mono signal. Just feed both left and right input with the click, record both outputs’ IRs, and then off to convolution!

Q:With this trick, both the Yardstick and its convoluted IR clone do really sound exactly the same?

A: Absolutely – both are as flat as pancakes now!
_____________

That’s the only thing they have to say about convolution and IR. You make out whatever you want, from this. However, I think it’s cool with them. I think you can’t mention their actual name, but you can use the abbreviation QRS I think. As long as they say it won’t ever be enough, or even remotely the same as their real hardware stuff.

Emanuel February 24, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Hehe :-) lol, thanks for getting back Mats!

I agree that you cannot capture non-linear aspects of reverb units, but still, you can get very close to the sound of the captured presets for fraction of the price of the expensive real units. For my music I use all my three libraries and I am still very happy with the excellent ambiance I can create with them.

Cheers,
Peter

Mats February 28, 2011 at 10:12 am

Yes, it would be cheaper anyway. I don’t know, but it’s all about number crunching things IMHO. Can’t be that hard to get that close. On their FAQ number 41, there are numerous other things, to probe deep into, that eventually leads up to that final question of convolution. They get pretty dense and goes on quite a bit. It’s evident that Quantecs views on how a reverb should be made are not for us noobs. And that their customer base is very clearly discerning high end only, and I think – frankly – classical or acosutic music, simulating real spaces and rooms and so on.

Nick Hinton January 14, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Hi Peter,

I just wanted to thank you very much for producing these impulse responses – it has really given me a glimpse into the sheer quality of the Bricasti M7. Whilst testing out other competitors and IR software, I’ve found a very happy combination with REVerence, the Scoring Stage preset and my trusty Poco VSS3.

Donations incoming! Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Emanuel January 14, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Thank you very much Nick for the kind words! I have created more variations, which I hope to release soon, and I am also planning a version 2 – which will be based on new sampling sessions, using a new and tested better sweeping process.

Enjoy the IRs!
Peter

Dave Romero October 19, 2010 at 10:25 pm

thank you!

these are great, thanks!

Jeff August 23, 2010 at 2:35 am

What download would be best for use with liquidsonics Reverberate. I’m looking for the true stereo impulses for the M7 only.

Thank you.

admin August 31, 2010 at 10:23 am

Hi Jeff,
Reverberate can load the two required L and R files into one ’slot’ (e.g. IR A). You should first select the True Stereo routing option. I have worked with LiquidSonics on presets, but the main problem is that the FXB preset files only store absolute file paths, not relative ones. So it looks that we cannot provide presets in the VST FXB format :-(

Alteregoxxx August 4, 2010 at 4:10 pm

Peter thanks for the generosity
…hoping this can further help to improve these fantastics impulses, i want to report that flipping the phase on the reverb channel mixer (in a true stereo “arrangement” with reaper using Reverberate LE),obviously while listening the dry signal channel too, gives me a more “FAT” sound…just my ears ? suggestion? or maybe there really is a phase problem (like inverted pin on cables used for sampling?)

sorry for my poor english, i’m italian! :-D

admin August 31, 2010 at 10:31 am

I am very sure that there can be no phase problem, because I use standard high quality digital cables. And I also compared the Wave forms with other fre Bicasti M7 IR libraries. But I will check it out of course. Have you tried to listen to your phase inverted ‘test’ in mono? Doesn’t that cancel out most of the reverb?
All the best,
Peter

Neil Wilkes August 2, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Hi Peter

Excellent work on the update. Downloading right now & will post again when used.
Can I just ask you if the AltiVerb files have a Quad version in them as well, for AltiVerb XL?

admin August 31, 2010 at 10:32 am

Hey Neil, doing well?

For Altiverb you should use the provided Altiverb folder structures, with the weird 1.1.wav etc file names. I am not yet familiar with Altiverb being able to load quad files… Is this a recent addition? I guess I should experiment with the latest demo version.
All the best!
Peter

Mark August 1, 2010 at 9:34 pm

Thank you very much for these! I use Space Designer Logic’s IR reverb plugin. Most of my productions are 24bit 44.1 I notice that your 24bit version has separate left and right files and one called M-to-S, which is a stereo wav file. Is this a stereo reverb IR that is suited to Space Designer or should I take the separate left and right files and combine them into an interlaced stereo file for Space Designer? Thanks.

Emanuel August 2, 2010 at 1:25 pm

Hi Mark, thanks for your comment. I have no experience with SD but I know from the forums that it is a pain in the a$$ to get it working in True Stereo. For True Stereo you need to use the L and R files, which essentially gives you 4 channels with IR information (which is required for TS). In some plugins you can load them one after the other (for instance in Waves IR-1), some allow you to load them in Quad channel format (also included). A very very good and cheap plugin is LiquidSonics Reverberate, which also supports True Stereo. You should really check it out as alternative to SD! All the best! If you have more questions, you can also just email me. Peter.

Tuwa Sni July 22, 2010 at 12:37 am

Peter, Thanks for your generosity and your hard and meticulous work in bringing this IR set to us.
