hm, impulse resonance. Now that is an interesting case. Because you are not actually using it as a sample file (it is not used as a snippet, how-ever short, to create a larger piece) but as a source for data. You could (in theory) also hardwire the information you parsed from the IR file into your code.
I say this because, if I were a lawyer, the interesting question is if somebody would claim that audio processed with an IR file becomes a derived work of the IR file itself. My strong guess is: no, not a derived work.
To keep it safe, in this case, keep the file CC-by. There is nothing wrong with CC-by, it is super permissive and, most important: it matters not if somebody considers ir-processed audio derived or not, since CC-by does not care about derived works and copyleft.
Don't relicense, keep the cc-by. Maximum compatibility, no problems (even theoretical ones).
