Free reverb resources - where to find impulse responses

Reason Refills - Wed, 07/22/2015 - 05:37

Hi there, Stefan here. I just wanted to go through a few resources of where to find new impulse responses to use with the new convolution mode in the updated RV7000 MkII–when you're finished going through the massive RV7000 MkII ReFill, that is.

There is a plethora of free impulse responses (IR files) out there on the web which are free to acquire and free to use. This is only a list of a few of them, so if you're feeling bold, just do a google search for "free impulse responses" and I'm sure you'll find even more.

Another cool trick is if you use Logic Pro, you can simply rename the .sdir files used in Space Designer to .aiff or .wav and they can be used in the RV7000 MkII!  You can find the .sdir files in the following directory: ~/Library/Application Support/Logic/Impulse Responses.

Starting with the most important ones, well, since I'm a guitar player.

Secure your account: Two Factor authentication on Drupal.org

Drupal - Sun, 07/19/2015 - 13:22

Drupal.org users* can now use Two factor authentication to increase the security of their accounts. It can be enabled via Security tab of your user profile page. Read the detailed instructions at Enabling TFA on Drupal.org.

This was made available to Drupal.org admins in May. It is now required for users who have advanced access on Drupal.org. However, every user can benefit from the security that two factor authentication offers.

If you want to make two factor authentication available on your own Drupal site, you can install the TFA module.

* Two factor authentication is available for all users with the 'confirmed user' role. If you don't see 'Security' tab on your profile page, you might be missing the role. Just keep posting content on Drupal.org and it will be granted soon. You can also apply to get the role.
