Audio Ease is offering two new impulse responses for Altiverb Version 7, for free: London's Wembley Stadium, which the company sampled through the P.A. system for the band Take That's Progress Live tour in the summer of 2011; and the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Cheops) in Egypt.

In May 2011, vocalist and musician Stellar recorded impulse responses in the King's chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The resonant chamber in the pyramid's center is surrounded by solid rose granite and quartz walls that are 50 meters (approximately 165 feet) thick. It measures 10.47 meters (34.4 feet) from east to west and 5.234 meters (17.17 feet) north to south. It has a flat roof 5.974 meters (19.60 feet) above the floor and is entirely faced with granite. The only object in it is a rectangular granite "sarcophagus." According to Audio Ease, apart from a 13-second reverb tail, several remarkable resonances can be heard that are connected to 432 Hz.

Altiverb 7's new IRs contain spectral and temporal data that allows them to be compared to others for Altiverb 7's "show similar sounding IRs" button.

Altiverb 7 impulse responses come in an entirely new format, allowing single-file downloads that include all channel configurations, spectral data, 360-surround movies, pictures, and textual tags for easier finding and sorting. Audio Ease state that future Audio Ease impulse response releases will be exclusively for Altiverb 7.

Altiverb 7 is backward compatible with Altiverb V. 6, so Altiverb 7 will load in all Altiverb 6 songs and projects.

Altiverb 7 users can update for free to Altiverb V. 7.0.4. This new version can download and install the new Wembley impulse response from directly within the plug-in.
