Sound Design with Convolution


Since convolution multiplies two signals, who says that it has to use an Impulse Response from an acoustic space? Most convolution reverbs will let you load multiple file formats into their engines. So what does this mean? It means you now have a very powerful sound design tool at your disposal. You can merge any two signals you desire. Turn a thunderclap into a reverb tail, combine an owl in a forest with your guitar. The possibilities are infinite!
