I’ve had quite a few composers ask if I know what real spaces the VSS2 rooms are modeled on. Some of the rooms are easily identifiable, but a few are fairly obscure, and one is a unique blend, so I asked Gabriel to identify those which are less obvious.
Keep in mind that while these are simply virtualizations of the real spaces, the early reflections in VSS2 are, in fact, based on the dimensions, and audible characteristics of the rooms they emulate.
