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). Sep 11, 2010 at 18:07
  • What is an high altitude IR? Sep 11, 2010 at 20:38
  • hmm. near space? tibet? mountains? lets go to everest and grab one.

  • 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... ;-) Sep 24, 2010 at 0:26
  • Well, high altitudes have less air pressure, so sound waves are less intense, ie. quieter.

  • 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 ;)

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

    I don't care what he meant, I just love that video. Sep 14, 2010 at 1:31
  • It was a test to see if you were paying attention.

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.
