Hey I was just wondering if anybody had a high altitude Impulse response or knew of any out there.

  • How high is high? I live Johannesburg, which is 5500ft high. I could try go get one if that is high enough, but is probably not though as it is acoustically similar to sea level (to my ears at least). – Andrew Spitz Sep 11 '10 at 18:07
  • What is an high altitude IR? – Jay Jennings Sep 11 '10 at 20:38
  • hmm. near space? tibet? mountains? lets go to everest and grab one. – Chris Sep 12 '10 at 4:15
  • I was just at 12,000' and there's usually no reverb at all at that height, period, unless you're in a cirque, canyon, or surrounded by cliffs, and even then, it's straight-up echo with no reverb. Crap, there I was, on the mountaintop with no starter pistol... ;-) – NoiseJockey Sep 24 '10 at 0:26
  • Well, high altitudes have less air pressure, so sound waves are less intense, ie. quieter. – user739 Dec 14 '10 at 0:43

  • Why would you want an impulse response of that? I can impulse response my dead/floating voice recording studio and it's the same difference. Totally dead ;) – Utopia Sep 12 '10 at 19:40
  • Yeah, I don't know what the questioner was expecting. High altitude means that everything is quiet and there are zero reverberations. – endolith Sep 13 '10 at 0:38

    I don't care what he meant, I just love that video. – Jay Jennings Sep 14 '10 at 1:31
  • It was a test to see if you were paying attention. – Chris Sep 14 '10 at 6:03

"Yeah, I don't know what the questioner was expecting. High altitude means that everything is quiet and there are zero reverberations."

Wrong. If there are mountains around, you get amazing echoes. I was in Switzerland at the beginning of summer, and greatly regretted having no means to make an IR.

That's a great idea, high altitudes definitely have a different sound, especially with snow on the ground. Next time I'm skiing I'll try to grab something. John.
