I wish they'd be still for 10 seconds so I can actually hear the verb.  Confused

If I'm not mistaken, I think this verb is sampled in the altiverb pluginn.

Ahah! When I was there I made a rough count!  Someone went the middle of Portugal to take this impulse responde? And the put the loudspeaker or mic in a boat? Very Happy But if it doesn't exist I wouldn't mind to get back there to do that tough.

The Cistern - Fort Worden, WA, USA

Neville Pearsall says: "It is an acoustic wonder and has one of the best long reverb responses in the world with a time of more than 40 seconds. The low frequency characteristics are spectacular and very pleasing. If two people are on opposite sides and place their ears near the wall you can talk very quietly and hear each other; like the whispering gallery."

I'm a big fan of that place. I've a friend who went there when he was a kid and got impressed for the rest of his life!

I think water acts like a low-pass filter. When we dive at a pool we only hear bass frequencies. But certainly it's surface reflects a lot and despite we get damped in water it dampens sound very little Very Happy!

I'm actually and avid SCUBA diver (with all my spare time.. yeah right).. When you're underwater and it's quiet you would be amazed the sounds you here from FAR away... you can here props from boat motors for long distances and I've heard Dolphins talking when nobody under or above has seen any evidence of them around... also heard whale's singing a few times in the caribbean and I'm told these high pitched sounds can travel for miles.

No doubt that the surface reflects a lot of high freq... and that it sounds "really wet"...  Rolling Eyes

Just one of (many thousands of) photos I've taken underwater... This particular shot on a shark dive in Honduras.. Awesome stuff!! They were cirling all around us right before they released the 'bait' and they went wild!! 2m  - 2.5m reef sharks.. not really that dangerous but it was very exciting for sure... I do really love sharks. They truly are 'perfect' creatures. All they do is swim, eat and make little sharks (from Jaws of course)...

I imagine that most of the man-made acoustics with the longest reverberation times will be Cathedrals.
Here in the UK, Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral has a reverb time of around 11s (I think, though I can't verify immediately), and I suspect that St. Paul's in London is at least as long if not longer, as will other similar buildings.

I wonder what Barcelona's Sagrada Familia is (or rather will/would be once complete)?!
