Understanding Deconvolution and Impulse Responses

Space Designer combines, or convolves, an impulse response of an acoustic space with an audio signal. The end result is that your audio is placed “inside” the acoustic space, represented by that impulse response. Think of an impulse response as the total echoes (reflections) in a given physical space, following an initial signal spike. The impulse response file is simply an audio file recording made in a space that contains these echoes.

There are two practical approaches to impulse response recording: the Transients and Sine Sweep methods.
