+1 AudioThing Fog Convolver.

Great clean interface, smooth and ultra intuitive workflow, true stereo and doesn't break the bank.

When less is more...

The ReaPlugs package certainly is free but I don't recall the Reaverb being included for some reason.

Well, actually is and I got it. For 25€ it is nearly a gift. Played around with it and it eats the other candidates for breakfast. :clown: cubase's own reverence and waves' IR-L look very poor now.


Call me weak but I grabbed it :P

Sounds like million dollars :tu:

IR-1 has crossover too.


Not the same as Melda it doesnt, can you target bands by dynamic content, or effect transients and sustain separately?

No doubt you're absolutely right, but doing those things is just waaaaaay beyond my limited ability. Seriously, I'm like, load IR... sound good? No, load another, Yes, get level right. Job done. Really, I'm a total schmuck when it comes to this sort of thing!

Then I am a total schmuch too man cause I’m right on your side with you on this. I don’t need a fat heavy bloated reverb full of micro parameters & settings that at the end I’ll just use the IR sample slot, the basic EQ or filter and that’s pretty much it. Not saying it’s not useful to some, but my philosophy on this (and in general in life) is that less is more once again… And having less allows me to concentrate more on the sound itself than microtuning 75 parameters for hours. And that’s exactly why I love Fog Convolver, it’s was created exactly for that purpose.

Interested in picking a convolution reverb up. The Melda one is $30 on sale, I'm with the poster above on being one for simplicity. Is fog convolver and the melda similar cpu wise? I'm sure I could use the melda and not bother with the multiband stuff, just load an impulse, tweak the length, predelay and filters and move on.

Before I get round to demoing them - anyone used both? Are they both similar in quality and recreating the impulses fed through them? Ofc fog convolver is over double the price of the Melda one in the sale so that's a factor atm.

I have melda, fog and reverberate. I like them all, but very different. If you want load/tweak/move on, get Fog. It costs more but the workflow fits your description. I think you will like using it much more than the others.
