HybridReverb2 is a convolution-based reverberation effect which combines the superior sound quality of a convolution reverb with the tuning capability of a feedback delay network.

The sound quality of a convolution reverb depends on the quality of the used room impulse responses. HybridReverb2 comes with a set of room impulse responses which were synthesized with tinyAVE, an auralization software which was developed at the Institute of Communication Acoustics, Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Borß and Martin, 2009; Borß, 2009a). These room impulse responses are designed for a speaker setup with two front and two rear speakers (Borß, 2009b). For a full surround sound effect, you will need two plugins, one plugin which uses a "front" preset for the front channels and a second plugin which uses the corresponding "rear" preset for the rear channels.
  • free and open source plugin (GPL)
  • high quality room impulse responses (PCM, 48kHz, 24bit)
  • rear channel impulse responses for a natural spatial envelopment
  • low latency (down to 64 samples)
  • low CPU load
  • individual performance optimizer
  • intuitive and clearly arranged user interface
  • quick selection of presets via categories
  • tuning of room impulse responses:initial gap / length / pre-delayo, dry / wet / master gain, envelope (with increasing resolution for fine tuning the early reflections), timbre (equalizer with 1/3 octave resolution)
  • editor for the preset database
  • user specified impulse responses can also be used

Great looking program, however it crashes when loading new IRs

One of the best convolutions, but it craches when I attempt to load from its huge extra library....
