Dry and wet bass and guitar recordings.

Plate Reverb - Bass - recordings are taken from the IDMT-SMT-Audio-Effects dataset. Plate settings are the following:

  • Smaertelectronix ambience: ’Gating Amount - 0’, ’Gating Attack" - 10 ms’, ’Gating Release - 10 ms’, ’Decay Time - 2225 ms’, ’Decay Diffusion - 50%’, ’Decay Hold - off’, ’Shape Size - 16%’, ’Shape Predelay - 0 ms’, ’Shape Width - 100%’, ’Shape Quality - 100%’, ’Shape Variation - 0’, ’EQ Bass Frequency - 43 Hz’, ’EQ Bass Gain - −7.8 dB’, ’EQ Treble Frequency - 5044 Hz’, ’EQ Treble Gain - −3.7 dB’, ’Damping Bass Frequency - 158 Hz’, ’Damping Bass Amount - 87%’, ’Damping Treble Frequency - 8127 Hz’, ’Damping Treble Amount - 32%’, ’Dry - −Inf’, ’Wet - 0dB’.

Spring Reverb - Bass and Guitar - recorded from the spring reverb tank: Accutronics 4EB2C1B: ’Dry Mix - 0%’, ’Wet Mix - 100%’

Plate reverb samples correspond to a VST audio plug-in, while spring reverb samples are recorded using an analog reverb tank which is based on 2 springs placed in parallel.

The recordings are downsampled to 16 kHz. Also, since the plate reverb samples have a fade-out applied in the last 0.5 seconds of the recordings, we process the spring reverb samples accordingly.
