Looking for a library of real sampled rooms

Postby wagz » Tue Nov 06, 2012 12:22 am

So, I'm looking for a library of actual, sampled rooms. I'm attempting to try to make everything(think acoustic instruments in a folk/bluegrass context recorded in a small/med. sized room) sound like it was recording in the same room.

I'm not interested in EDM, dubstep, large orchestral or artificial sounding verbs. Also, I'm recording in 96k, so I'd like the library to be 96k. I already know about Roomhunters. So, what do you recommend for quality, real, natural-sounding rooms libraries?

Yes!!! Your stuff is always great quality, Henry. Please, include some small and medium spaces and I'm pretty much sold.

The only ones I've tried are CDSoundmaster's "Real Spaces" in the Producer Pack 2. The PP2 also comes with some...interesting...guitar and bass stuff (I'm not sure I've ever used those to be honest). Actually I was looking for a Marshall guitar EQ the other day and forgot about this one. But the room verbs are fabulous. A very underrated library (possibly because of the weird bundling). There are demo programs (I think one or two of the rooms is included) and some audio samples so that's worth checking out.

I've not tried them out but the Room Hunters reverbs would be an obvious choice as well.

I'll have to try those. I'm reading in the manual for PP2 and it says, "...they are acoustic environments that I have created." He goes on to refer to the environments as "places". I get the sense that these are not sampled rooms, otherwise, why wouldn't he just say that? Maybe Michael can clear this up.

Hi,
The room hunters are special verbs:
It is more room spaces and sounds than a room reverb.
It is usefull to enlarge the spaces in a realistic way.
It is a kind of "dry" reverb that is amazing and has no comparison in any other reverbs I ever used.

I would recommend it.
When it is well chosen and eq'ed, it can have amazing results in a mix, soft and natural with no color but space.

Then, I allways add a second reverb to it to make the sounds more wet.

Really? In use, this library does miracles. It doesn't only add "space" (admittedly it's only that one theatre room, which sounds great), but you can (read: "it will") also alter the tonality with its various mics selectable.
Rarely i will mix a sampled piano without the Roomhunters verb...

Great to hear! Will you try to sample the mic crosstalk in a real dead 70's "carpet studio" as well?

I hope he does, I've wondered about this myself. For what it's worth though, I've used PP2 reverbs on EVERY mix I've done since I bought it. They are definitely that good! If authenticity is a concern, this library sounds VERY convincing in terms of sounding like a real room.

But, as a reference, I haven't tried the VXVT, RoomHunters, or new AITB reverbs.
