I use Waves 1R-1 which is on sale right now at Sweetwater for $35.  Quite a deal and it comes with a jillion ir's.

Are the impulses in a standard format or proprietary ?

Hi, I'm new to this, but isn't there any convolution reverbs bundled with the Bandlab's Cakewalk now when it's available for free? Or you still have to go for third party plug ins?

Back when SONAR cost $500 they could throw in lots of cool third-party stuff that they'd licensed from other developers. The effects you now get for free are limited to what CW owned outright at the time its IP was transferred to BandLab. AFAIK CW never developed their own convolution reverb, preferring to license one from a third party (Voxengo).

Fortunately, there are free/cheap convolution reverbs out there, and they all do a decent job. I should also note that convolution reverbs, although once extremely popular, have since been relegated to specific applications where you want to replicate an actual acoustical space. Nowadays algorithmic reverbs are far more widely used than convolutions.

The full rematrix is very great.  It includes eq delay and a algorithmic reverb too.  But, as said above, it can be a bit much for simple convo.

I use this as well. And yeah, a ton of IR spaces, including actual venues like the Ryman in Nashville.
