Manage 3th party impulse responses


Hello, how do i open and manage 3th party impulse responses in the Max for Live Device Convolution Reverb?

In a Ableton blog post i found a link to some 3th party impulse responses. When i drag these files on the "drag impulse responses here", nothing happens.

I guess the IR's are in a format that is not supported, but what formats are supported by Live?

Also i downloaded 100's of IR's, how do you easily manage them in the Convolution Reverb?

    Ok found it; Some files are mac only. You can add folders with .wav files in User/My Documents/Ableton/Factory Packs/Max For Live Essentials/Max Audio Effect/Convolution Reverb

    They will then show up in Ableton

    If you're running Ableton in admin mode in Windows (sometimes needed for some VST/i plugins) the drag and drop facility from Windows Explorer won't normally work. What I've done is add the folder where I keep my convolution impulses into the 'Places' section on the Browser section on the left of Ableton (by clicking the 'Add Folder...' button and navigating to the required folder)

    Tried this again with the Live essentials 2.0

    OSX users never could use or roll our own IRs.

    Max for Live essentials has always been a single 'file' that is unable to be opened or modified. It's a major PITA to utilize after watching a 20 minute video on it.

    Best bet is to use another 3rd party convolution program.
