    Just thought I'd pass it along just in case anyone was looking for a good deal on a decent convolution reverb.
    Intel i5 3.1ghz, Win7 Home Premium 64 bit, 16gb RAM, focusrite saffire pro40, Cubase 7.5, lazy pit bull (gets it from her mother).

    Just out of curiosity....and I'm asking this sincerely, not sarcastically, because I don't know.....considering a convolution reverb doesn't create sounds, it only plays the impulses you put into it, why would someone pay for one when you can have something like this for free?: SIR1 | SIR Audio Tools

    There's also the free Reaverb that comes with REAPER, for example. Can one IR be "better" than another? I can't see why anyone would spend $100 on one when there are several for free.

    I'm not saying it justifies the cost, but Waves IR-L has a small selection of impulses included.

    Edit: Apparently there's 4.8gb worth of impulses that I never knew about.

    Good points, probably the only reason to buy another brand is the included IRs like Altiverb has a huge library but so expensive but on sale, the included IRs are good. There are a lot of others like the Bricasti IRs that are better.

    Convolution reverb is quite CPU-hungry (so I've read) - perhaps some brands are more efficient?

    Does SIR 1 still have the bad latency thing going on with it? I purchased SIR 2 and can tell you the reason it's better than the free one is the proprietary reverb files and it allowed more shaping (doesn't just do L and R, it sums 4 sources to stereo or something like that I can't remember).

    The other reason IR1 (not IR-L) would be better than SIR 1 is the fact that the plugin includes a deconvolver for creating your own reverb impulses.
