Following on from IR001 GLASS Impulse Responses by HISS and a ROAR, this library of impulse responses explores the acoustics of 43 metal objects via three specific approaches.

1. Empty Metal Object IRs
Ranging in size and scale from a tiny soda can to a huge grain silo, sweeps were captured using an MKH8020 mics, stereo where possible with the large objects, while the very small objects were captured using a DPA4060 mic.

2. Pitch shifted IRs at half speed & quarter speed.
Processed versions of each IR are included, pitch shifting and slowing the IR to half speed and quarter speed to expand its use with a wider range of source material via easy preview.

3. Iterated IRs 
As per GLASS IR001, I iterated the process by playing the captured IR back into the same object.
