Tips & Techniques:Convolution Pads and Galore
Simple trick in Logics space designer or any convolution able application.
open Space designer on a track and load any audio file as the IR and use it in 100% wet mix over any audio material.
the result will be a very eerie sounding pad. or blissfull one. it all depends on what IR audio file you use and what you play.
I for example load an indian chant gramofone recording from early 20th century as my IR and process a Sitar lick i played using a sampler. the result is a very enigmatic pad.
you can then bounce the result and use it in a sampler to create pitch of the pad.
nifty little trick who thanks to a fellow GS i realized that you could do it space designer instead of soundhack.

Impulse responses for sound design
There are also some impulse response libraries for these kind of sound design experiments.
You may want to check out Virtuasonic Synaesthesis.
Beware, there are some free impulse responses available for download and audio examples that will get you addicted to convolution...

Lives for gear
Users of Logic Studio will have to do this using the seperately installed Impulse Response Designer . . . which makes the whole process a little more complex.
Thanks very much for the tip though! I find the results much more predictable using this method than when using SoundHack. Much appreciated!

Space Designer in Logic 7 can load any AIFF or WAVE file as an impulse response - I just tried this and it worked a treat; Instant freaky ambience! Not sure if SD in Logic 8 is any different, but you could check by clicking on the button with the "-" on it next to where it says IR sample. I used a few of the Ambience audio files from the EXS Instruments folder. Trippy...!
