The Top Convolution Reverbs
Of all the reverb types on the market, convolution reverbs are perhaps the most intriguing, because their sounds are based on impulse responses from actual spaces such as concert halls, recording studio live rooms, gymnasiums, you name it. The following is a list of the top five convolution reverbs, as chosen by the Audiofanzine community.

Does that mean convolution reverbs are more like reverb samplers, so-to-speak, while other reverb plug-ins are reverb simulators?

That's a good way to characterize it. That's not to say, however, that algorithmic reverbs are inferior, many sound fantastic. But if you're trying to add reverb that accurately reproduces the reflections of a specific space--the back seat of a Cadillac or the third row at Carnegie Hall--a convolution reverb is the tool to use.
