Hi all, I'm new to this site and have registered to spread what I believe is good advice and ask for everyones help. Since I bought an electric double bass I have been struggled to get a good sound when recording. I learned about convolution reverb which uses real recordings of spaces to make reverbs. I came up with the idea of creating an impulse response of my acoustic double bass. I did this in a rush before I sold it by mic'ing close to the sound hole with an AKG C1000 and tapping the body of the bass with my finger. I then applied this impulse to my EDB using a free convolution reverb program called SIR and I was very impressed with the results. Feel free to email me for samples of the results. SIR runs as a cubase plugin and is available free from www.knufinke.de/sir. Unfortunately I only have this one poorly recorded impulse from a pretty average sounding Andreas Zeller bass. If anyone could help me by making an impulse response for their bass I would be very gratefull. To record an impulse response all you need is a mic and something to make a precussive noise in the body of your bass (the easiest is to tap the outside). The kind of mic you use, the postition of the mic and how you make the tap will all make a difference, so it's best to do loads. They should be recorded as .wav files. I would be happy to take them all and advise you of which are the best ones. I am also happy to advise on how to use them. I would be very gratefull to anyone who can help me with this experiment.
