The Echoes of Machine Project: Josh Forbes & Jacqueline Gordon

On Sunday, August 11th, Josh Forbes and Jacqueline Gordon recorded the sound of a popping balloon in Machine Project. Using convolution reverb, this sound can be transformed into an acoustic model of our storefront gallery. Convolution reverb digitally emulates the acoustics of a space by comparing the recorded echoes of an impulse (like a popping balloon) taken in the space to the audio you intend to process.

To impart the acoustics of Machine Project onto your own recordings, just download this wav file (on the next page, right click on the link and choose “save link as”), then download these instructions and you’ll be well on your way!

A recording of this impulse and a convolution reverb plugin will be available for download here on Saturday, August 17th so you can impart the acoustics of Machine Project onto your own recordings.

This plug-in was created for Machine Project’s All-Echo Weekend, as part of the 2013 Echo Park Rising festival.
