Diego Stocco is one of the most creative sound designers around – whether he is creating sounds for OmniSphere, scoring films, building his own orchestra or finding inspiration in strange places.

Now he wants to teach you how to use a squirrel for a reverb.

Stocco has released Rhythmic Convolutions 2, a set of 200 rhythmic Impulse Responses specifically designed for the processing of beats, synths and instruments with a percussive timbre. 

But these aren’t your typical reverb impulse responses. In this preview video, Stocco gets his sound design superfreak chops on, demonstrating how to use a squirrel as a reverb:

Rhythmic Convolutions 2 is an impulse response library, featuring 200 rhythmic Impulse Responses from unusual sources, custom built devices and sonic events. It’s available for 48 hours for US $27, normally US $29.99.

    1. Exploring convolution processing for the purpose of creating complex rhythms is a newer approach and before my “Rhythmic Convolutions” set (that I released last year) there wasn’t any specific rhythmic IR library out there.

      I was too already using convolution with impulse responses different than reverbs 10 years ago, made tracks for trailers, ambiences, drones.. but it was only recently that I noticed how convolution could be used for rhythmic processing. I spent time refining this approach to make it work effectively and that’s what you can hear now in my video.

      Aside from this.. since music existed for thousands of years already, should we all give up? : )
