AudioThing has released version 1.2.0 of Fog Convolver, a convolution plugin that applies the sonic character of an impulse response to another sound in real time.

An impulse response is a recording of the output that is caused by an acoustic space or electronic gear when an impulse is played (electric spark, starter pistol shot or the bursting of a balloon).

Fog Convolver can be used to add reverberation, create special effects, and apply an acoustic impulse captured from audio equipment.

Changes in Fog Convolver v1.2.0

  • Start/End now works in samples, milliseconds, or percentage.
  • AIFF bank import enabled.
  • Up to 4x Faster Loading/Updating time.
  • Added function to save Default Preset.
  • Added Mono->Stereo channel configuration.
  • Fixed crash if no bank is installed.
  • Fixed filters input values (now works with both Hz and kHz values).
  • Fixed Dry/Wet input values.

AudioThing has also released Vintage Mics, a free impulse response bank.

It features 40 impulse responses of vintage microphones from 20 manufactures. Mostly ribbon microphones from the 30s to the 70s.
