Audio Ease releases Zappa recording studio: UMRK for Altiverb
Audio Ease has released Zappa recording studio: UMRK, a free impulse response set for Altiverb.
Arjen and Aram of Audio Ease went by Frank Zappa’s studio, the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen, to meet with Dweezil Zappa and together record the acoustics of both the tracking room and the famous Zappa echo chamber. Microphones and speaker in the echo chamber were set up just the way Frank had left them.
You can read the full story on Dweezil Zappa’s blog.
The resulting impulse responses can be downloaded for free for use in Altiverb, Audio Ease’s convolution reverb plug-in, as part of the monthly-free-IR campaign.
