Waves – IR-1 Parametric Convolution Reverb V2

Filed under: Music software at 11:08 am (1 comment)

Waves have updated their IR-1 parametric convolution reverb to version 2. This new version has tools to capture your own impulse responses, so you can capture the natural reverb of your own bathroom or closet, if you want. It also has a number of other tweaks and a bigger, better library of impulse resp0nses.

As they say on the website, “Simulated reverbs offer great control of individual parameters but can’t accurately reproduce the sound of real acoustic spaces. Convolution reverbs are sample-based, and so capture natural reverb, but haven’t offered the flexible controls of simulated reverb — until now. With the IR-1 V2, you get the actual captured sound of the world’s best venues and unmatched control using the traditional parameters you’re already familiar with.”

Other new features are:

  • Convolution Start Control lets you trim the beginning of an impulse response to eliminate unwanted predelay.
  • ER (Early Reflections) Buildup Control lets you adjust the buildup slope of the early reflections to control their attack sound, from crisp to smooth.
  • Dry Gain Mode gives you more control over the sound by letting you adjust the wet and dry signal gains separately in addition to the option of using the traditional dry/wet control.
  • Extensive Library of Improved Impulse Response Samples with Different Micing Options.
  • Dynamic Preset Handling. Adding or removing presets is now easier, with the preset menu reflecting the impulse response samples contained in the presets folder.
