Waves IR-1 Parametric Convolution Reverb V2 combines the unmistakable sound of natural reverb with the flexible controls of simulated reverb. With IR-1 V2 software plug-in you get the actual captured sound of the world's best venues and unmatched control using the traditional parameters users of IR-1 are already familiar with. Waves IR-1 comes with a long list of available reverbs taken from famous studios and legendary live venues. Plus, the V2 version lets you capture impulse responses from rooms or devices yourself, to modify with the same flexible controls.

New Features in the V2 Plug-in:

The ability to capture your favorite acoustic spaces
Convolution start control—trims unwanted pre-delay from start of impulse response
ER (early reflections) buildup control—control attack sound of early reflections, from crisp to smooth
Dry gain mode—adjust wet and dry signal gain separately
Extensive library of improved impulse response samples
Dynamic preset handling—easier adding/removing of presets

Standard features of the Waves IR-1 Reverb Software:

Reverb Time RT60—shorten or lengthen reverb time while maintaining acoustic coherence
Room size control with acoustic modeling
Reverb Decay Envelope—multiple breakpoint envelope with graphic interface for reshaping decay behavior
Density—make the space sound clearer or denser with modeling methods to alter response
Reso (resonance)—allows acoustically-based control of the modal timbre
Decorrelation—allows greater control of the reverberation's stereo spaciousness
ER/Tail/Direct Independent Control—control early reflection and reverb tail
Damping—separate control of low, mid, and high frequencies
4-band paragraphic EQ—based on the Renaissance EQ plug-in
CPU usage control—low CPU mode and efficient components require less processing power
Convolution length control—control the length of the convolution
