Halls of Fame Impulse Responses

Halls of Fame Impulse ResponsesBest Service have released Halls of Fame, a collection of impulse responses from the world‘s most famous reverb units.


This collection of IRs from the world‘s most famous reverb units takes your convolution reverb plugin to the next level. Produced on state-of-the-art equipment for maximum resolution, ultra-low noise levels and pristine, transparent sound quality.

Using tailor-made test and production methods, the people at the renowned Soniclab studio obtained stunning audio quality that actually matches that of the original equipment. 32 Bit True stereo technology was used to accurately reflect the signal positions, leaving the soundstage of the mix intact. Deconvolution side effects were EQ’d out carefully, and no automatic batch processing was used.

Since all processing and editing work was done in 32 bit floating point format, the 32 bit files provide the ultimate in sound quality. The 24 bit versions of all the presets are almost as impressive, and are ideal if your plugin cannot handle 32 bit files.

“The most critical parameter in convolution reverb is always the quality of the IRs you use.“ Wolfgang Lenden – audio engineer & music producer / Soniclab studio

The DVD multi-format library features all the legendary L96 and T600C hardware reverb presets in Wave and AIFF formats, and also Wave files of the Altiverb 5-6 format. All files come in 32-bit and 24-bit versions at 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz.

Some presets offer the choice of longer or shorter reverb time too, and some IRs even offer Early Reflections / Tail Only.

  1. This product is a complete rip-off from my products’ concepts, folder and file structures, marketing texts, even the selection of presets and the addition of a number of “variations” has been copied.
    I have trusted this developer and given him recording tips AND copies of my libraries.

    He has just simply also stolen my nicknames L96 and T600 with which I refer to the original reverb devices.

    It is downright SHAME that developers dare to try to get so close to the line of plagiarism! Also SHAME on BestService.de for selling unoriginal products like this!

    I am glad to conclude that the Halls of Fame IRs have more artefacts, subsonic noise, inequal IR lengths and DC-offsets.


    Check out my Samplicity website for better IR’s

  2. I have both Samplicity and the Sonic Labs collection, and I can say unequivocally that Peter's Samplicity collection is superior by far. The two products are almost exactly the same, except that sonic labs did some kind of (batch) processing that reduced the quality of the IRs.
    I suspected that there was some kind of connection between the two companies when I saw how similar the IRs were, so I ran a bunch of tests:
    1) The Samplictiy IRs have the correct pre-delay for each preset (from the original unit); the Sonic Labs pre-delays are all wrong.
    2) The Samplicity IRs have excellent depth and imaging; the Sonic Labs set has reduced resolution and poor stereo decorrelation.
    3) Sonic Labs IRs have (as Peter noted) subsonic artifacts and DC offset; the Samplicity set has no such problems.
    Do yourself a favor and get the Samplicity set; you will be rewarded with better, richer IRs and be supporting the person who did all the hard work to make this excellent collection available.

  3. I had to add my $0.02 worth here, owning both this library as well as the Samplicity libraries, and the Samplicity ones are frankly outstanding and right up there with the best anyone else can do & I cannot recommend them highly enough or find sufficient good things to say about them & Peter’s work.

    The 960 & 6000 sets are simply awesome
