Hi all, i have been using SIR's reverb for a few days and i am amazed of the quality of this reverb, i used to mix vocals or lead guitars with my lexicon mpx 500 but i have to say that i found reverbs that sound as good or even better than my real thing.
Also Samplitude has a good amount of convolutive reverbs that sounds great, and i can even use my impulse library with it, anyway there seems to be a little bug with the room simulator so with my own library i prefer to use SIR.
To convolution reverb users: Post your settings, wav impulses for guitars, vocals, drums etc...

I use a great british spring reverb which is stereo on my guitar tracks.

(but not a long plate, usually.)
Also some of the ambience/ER stuff works well. For the record, i'm not a big 'verb fan for electric guitar, in most cases.

I know plate reverbs are supposed to be a kind of "standard" for vocals and lots of other things but I don't care for them in general.
Samps RS has tons of great verb sounds but I really like just using the impulses in the ambient folder.

I'll use verb on electrics, but it really depends on the song.
I am fond of some of the halls for electrics, but I only mix in a touch - like 3% wet.
I tend to use more delays; again very very lightly.

I bought a German spring reverb on eBay that sounds fantastic on guitar. I see one for sale on eBay now from the same guys who sold me mine:
Spring reverb on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=41415&item=3745466981&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW)
Suggestion: make sure the wall wart they include is correct for your country. They inadvertently shipped mine with a 220V wall wart, but they sent me the right one as soon as it came in. Good guys to deal with and a GREAT spring verb.
The only minor hassle is that there's no power on/off switch. I keep mine in a 4-space rack with two similarly configured pieces connected to a power distributor, and turn on the whole rack as needed.
