There once was a site called silophone.net where you could upload your 
sounds and have them played through a silo. The system used lowres 
realaudio, so it was not fit for audiowork. It lead me to a mad idea, 
though. This was to have a silo or other kind of room with nice reverb, 
wich you could play sounds through via the net and download them in high 
quality. This would provide a good natural reverb. In fact some studios 
use similar analog/mechanic reverbs where they have a hole in the 
concrete wall with a speaker and mike, and mix that with the original 
signal to make reverb.

Anyone know if such a service exist? Would this be a good idea? I'm also 
wondering if the "convolution" tecnique, wich I've never heard of 
before,  could be useful in connection with such a reverb system.
