Convolution reverb is software that allows the user to emulate the specific acoustic characteristics of a real space. This is achieved by first taking an impulse response of the desired space. An impulse response is captured by amplifying a sine wave sweep into the space using high fidelity speakers, and then recording how that sweep is affected by the space using a microphone. Convolution reverb software can take the results of an impulse response and apply them to any other signal. In much simpler terms, convolution reverb allows the user to make any piece of prerecorded audio sound as if it were recorded in a specific space.
