Morevox has announced Hit!, a collection of 300 impulse responses.
High impact reverberation is fundamental in achieving a great drum sound inside a mix. That deep, wide, aggressive sound is created by mixing both real rooms and hardware reverbs together.
MoReVoX HiT! represents this combination of both real rooms and hardware (up to ten sources for each IR) mixed with the unique MoReVoX attitude. All the sources have been carefully placed in the stereo field, and the final IRs have been recorded on real tape and mastered in M/S for a superior warm spaciousness.
The classic MoReVoX reverb sound is here in full; it has been meticulously tailored for drums, percussion, and for every mix where high-impact reverb is required.
300 Impulse Responses, 24Bit@44.1Khz.
3 Categories (short, medium and large length).
Format : Raw Wav. Space Designer.
Compatible with all convolvers.
IRs Length : 0.2 > 3 Sec.

Morevox has also announced the Impact Pack, bundling the new Hit! library with the Parallel Drums library for $119 USD, a $49 USD discount on the individual prices.
