about

A collection of impulse responses taken from the Sony Playstation 1!

Simply download the 'IR' tracks as a .WAV file and import into your favourite convolution reverb and voilà! You now have the sound of the PS1 reverb at your disposal :)

Reverb settings include:

Studio
Church
Dome
Hall (my personal favourite)

MORE INFO:

A convolution reverb is a type of reverb that uses impulse responses to capture the sound of a real live space or hardware unit. An impulse response simply put is a recording (most commonly a sine wave sweep) that's played in the space/unit which captures the sound of it's reverberation.

For this project i used a PS1 model number SCPH-5552 as that particular model (and earlier) includes it's inbuilt reverb algorithms within the CD player. I then made a custom sine sweep file and burnt it onto a CD which i placed into the Playstation. After some trial and error i finally got a result that's on par with the console and gave me great satisfaction!

Many games on the PS1 would take advantage of the systems reverb to help make it's music/fx sound less dull. One great example of this can be heard in the infamous PS1 startup sound! The sound itself only consists of 3 audio files played at different speeds.. but with the help of it's reverb the audio is enhanced and glued together to help present that futuristic sound that we all know and love.

Free to download! Any donations are appreciated :)

Enjoy!!
