Open AIR advice

OK, I'm new to convolution reverbs, but I like the idea. I do understand that things are different --- for instance, as I understand it, there's already some pre-delay in the Impulse response, so you set things up a little differently.

When working with Room reverb, I usually set up a reverb FX bus and use it as a send. In fact, on Room Reverb, there are settings explicitly for this where the mix is 100% wet. I've tried this on the Open AIR 'verb, and when I set the mix to 100%, different impulses give very different results than I expected (different levels, etc.), to the point where I wonder if this is not the expected workflow for a convolution reverb.

Any thoughts? How do you use Open AIR (or other convolution reverbs)?

the interesting thing for me is I use it more as a sound design tool- you can completely reshape sounds using simply impulse responses you can download for free online. add filters to the mix and you can take a generic sound and create something unique you'd have never expected before.

Generaly, you don't use convolution reverbs at 100% wet.

How can anyone call something so divisive a community?

I think GMGB_bass was refering to using an instance of the reverb plug-in as a send effect where 100% wet would be the norm.

the resulting volume depends on the level over time of both signals (i.e. input and IR). this can not be predicted nicely. so you'll need to adjust the fx-channels level.
May the voodoo be with you!
