Convolution Reverb - Basics
Author: Guido Helbling, Avosound - last updated June 20, 2017
The operation of convolution reverb is basically very simple: When the reverberation of sound material in convolution reverb is a reference signal in the audio stream with woven. This reference signal is invoked at each sample position and played with the current volume of the sample position. This reference signal is a room impulse response, which carries the audio information of a room.
A convolution reverb plug-in is thus nothing more than a sample player, but depending on the resolution makes it 48,000 or 96,000 times per second.
