    I picked up a Waves bundle a little while back and never used the included convolution reverb.

    I thought I'd actually give it a try, but wasn't sure where it would be best to put the impulse responses - the OS drive or my audio drive.

    Where is it typically stored? Does it actually matter?

    Thanks :D

    I believe it doesn't matter. All of the IR are on my third disc (VSTi library, samples, etc). Once loaded inside the plug-in, it will be processed from there, no real time streaming from HDD I suppose.

    All non-audio data such as the convolution impulses should go on the system drive. Impulse files contain load-and-use data, not dissimilar to program dlls in terms of disk access.
