What reverb type uses impulse responses?

Convolution reverb
Convolution reverb is an innovative piece of technology that allows for great authenticity. It allows the user to replicate the acoustics of any space using an impulse response.

What is a reverb impulse?

An impulse reverb, also known as “convolution reverb”, is an effect that creates artificial reverberations by convolving the impulse response of actual reverberations with the recorded sound.

What is the point of impulse response?

Technically, an Impulse Response, or IR for short, refers to a system’s output when presented with a very short input signal called an impulse. Basically, you can send any device or chain of devices a specially crafted audio signal and the system will spit out a digital picture of its linear characteristics.

Why do we impulse response?

In signal processing, the impulse response, or impulse response function (IRF), of a dynamic system is its output when presented with a brief input signal, called an impulse. More generally, an impulse response is the reaction of any dynamic system in response to some external change.

What is plate reverb good for?

As you can imagine, the sound of a metal plate physically vibrating creates a bright-sounding effect. These qualities make plate reverb a go-to option for vocals, snare drums, percussion, and other elements that need to distinguish themselves within the mix.

What is convolution reverb and how does it work?

At its center, convolution reverb relies on an impulse response – an audio recording done to strict criteria that is used to mathematically process the signal. An impulse response is usually recorded using a starter gun shot, sine sweep or balloon pop to stimulate the sound of an acoustic space.
