  1. LAconvolver is free. DP has ProVerb, Logic & Mainstage ($29) has Space Designer.

    With those convolutions, you can load ANY audio file as your impulse response, and free impulse responses are plentiful on the internet.

    It’s not clear whether you can load your own I.R.’s in this app. If I’m not mistaken, longer IR’s would require heavier processing.

    I’m not crazy about the examples given, but they might be great for some folks’ needs.

    I’m not dissing this app. I don’t know that there are other convolution apps available yet. It’s a great and untapped technology.

  2. This might just be the perfect little field recording app — includes Audio Copy, Audio Paste, SoundCloud and Dropbox, plus looking at the @spacesampler twitter feed, it looks as if the developer is putting it on sale ahead of some sort of update.

  3. Also, it saves the recording both as filtered and unfiltered, which means if you aren’t satisfied with the outcome of a filter but don’t want to throw away the recording you can always take the file that has no filter and test other filters or just send it to your DAW.
