Waves IR1 Convolution Reverb Plug-In Details
Waves IR-1 Native Convolution Reverb puts the meticulously captured acoustics of the worldâ??s greatest venues at your fingertips: Halls, auditoriums, nightclubs, and more, like Wembley Arena, the Grand Ole Opry, Sydney Opera House, and Birdland, to name but a few. You can even capture the sound of your favorite rooms and hardware units, and tweak the reverb with pinpoint precision. With the IR1 bundle, which also includes the IR-L, itâ??s never been easier to re-create the sonic signature of your choice.
Totally Natural Acoustic Spaces
The attraction of Sampling or convolution based reverbs is the accurate reproduction of natural acoustic spaces. But the chief drawback of most convolution verbs is their inability to control reverb parameters in the familiar and flexible fashion offered by traditional artificial reverbs. IR-1 offers the best of both approaches without any compromises.
True Control of Reverb Parameters
IR-1 is the first Convolution based reverb that allows classic parameters to actually affect the convolution, not just "filter the result" in order to produce parameter changes.
Processing that Won't Kill Your CPU!
The IR-1's CPU Usage Control is a special "low CPU" mode utilizing intelligent algorithms that require less CPU usage while preserving high sound quality and definition. Direct Convolution Length Control allows control over the length of the actual real-time convolution. Therefore the CPU load can be reduced if desired by using a shorter convolution length and a longer reverb time.

What We Think
"Waves IR-1 changed what I was able to do with a DAW. Having come from the land of having 3 actual EMT 140 plate reverbs available as well as a Lexicon 480L and 224, the sonic palate for effects in the box really was lacking a few years back. IR-1 enabled me to load impulse responses from actual devices and actual spaces. Knowing some of the 'make-do' spaces I was dealing with at the time, it certainly helped a lot to be able to load up the room sound from Cello Studios to help put some air around the drums. And the ability to pull up patches from a 480L helped quite a bit as well.
"But IR-1 is so much more than simply a studio or music reverb - it's a sound designer's dream. Combine the spaces that are included with the spaces that you can sample in the field, and there is much that you can accomplish after the fact."
