"SIR2 is a truly elegant piece of software, providing a great range of
general-purpose convolution facilities within a no-nonsense interface.
It's relatively CPU light, requires no dongle, and I can't fault the
However, what really sets it apart for me is that it
makes working with convolution at mixdown so straightforward. As a
result, it's usually first call whenever I need reverb, and if you
forced me to choose just one reverb plug-in for everything in my mix,
it would certainly be SIR2.
