Numerical Sound releases Bass Tilt Filters for Reason

Numerical Sound Bass Tilt Filters

Numerical Sound has announced Bass Tilt Filters (BTF), a Rack Extension that contains 36 convolution filters at each Reason sample rate to brighten or darken your sounds in the most transparent way possible.

They can be used in a wide range of applications: from mastering to adding warmth or clarity, from creative sound design to changing the emphasis of effects – or even emulating the sound of a vintage recordings.

Dark Tilt filters can remove harshness and blend sounds into a mix. Brighter Tilt filters emphasize the high end, adding presence that can keep sounds from getting lost in the mix.

Bass Tilt Filters features

  • BTL cutoff frequencies are at C2 (65 Hz), C3 (131 Hz) and C4 (262 Hz) each with 6 levels of bright and dark – a total of 36 filters at each sample rate offered by Reason.
  • This convolution software makes precision sound possible that is otherwise unattainable with parametric and multiband EQ because of its inherent lack of resonance curves and phase distortion.
  • Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the sounds.
  • Audiophile design supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with processing transparently optimized for each sample rate.

The Bass Tilt Filter Rack Extension is available to purchase for 39 EUR.

Numerical Sound ReBass Narrow

Numerical Sound has announced the release of ReBass Narrow, a Rack Extension for the Reason music production software by Propellerhead Software.

ReBass uses convolution to target bass frequencies with extreme precision, emphasizing just a perfect fifth while leaving the surrounding material untouched.

This means no messing around with endless sweeping and tweaking – just target the range you want from C0-G0 (31-46Hz) to B3-F#4 (233-394Hz) by picking one of the 36 impulses. Each impulse is one semitone higher than the last, so you don’t have to think like an engineer to get a great sound – it’s quick, clear and free of the phasing artifacts and imprecision EQ can introduce.

ReBass Narrow features

  • Extreme precision bandpass, rolling off 110 dB within 1.5 semitones from the target range, only possible through convolution and something that traditional EQs cannot match.
  • 36 impulse organized by starting pitch cover 3 octaves from C0-G0 (31-46Hz) to B3-F#4 (233-394Hz).
  • Audiophile Design: Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with accurate detail, ultra-low noise floor and utmost transparency.
  • Easy to Use Controls: Impulse List, Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the bass.
  • Smooth CV based automation can be used Stereo.
  • Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet to creatively change your sound.

ReBass Narrow is available to purchase for 55 EUR.

Numerical Sound releases RiVerb reverb Rack Extension

Numerical Sound has released RiVerb, a reverb Rack Extension effect for Propellerhead Reason.

Numerical Sound RiVerb: Up-Front Spaces brings world-class reverb to Rack Extension shop. It is both the first convolution reverb Rack Extension and one of the first reverbs anywhere dedicated to the up-front impact of real small venues.

The 36 spaces range from the sound of small professional studios to recital halls and the more intimate scoring stages. The spaces feature rich detail that algorithmic reverbs can’t emulate. The Etched Early Reflections, Spectral Weighting and True Ambience content give it a sound unlike any other convolution reverb.

RiVerb features

  • 36 Reverb Impulses from Real Venus: From recording studios of every size to clubs, recital halls, theaters and even scoring stages.
  • Audiophile Design: Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with accurate detail, ultra-low noise floor and utmost transparency.
  • Timbral Weighting: Several impulses augment the space’s sound using spectral weighting on the low end or top end to enhance and change the overall sonic character of a track.
  • High Density Impulse Tails: Rich, complex sound without repetition or flutter.
  • Easy to Use Controls: Impulse List, Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the sounds.
  • High Impact “Etched” Early Reflections: Up-Front Spaces has some of the most clearly defined and articulated early reflections of any reverb product, making it perfect for rhythmic material and other sounds with strong attacks.
  • True Ambience: Unlike many competing algorithmic and convolution reverb products, RiVerb: Up-Front Spaces renders a fully differentiated wet sound, giving it a wider sense of space. In many other products the sound is less expansive and varied because too much of the direct signal ends up in the “wet” sound.

The RiVerb Rack Extension costs 55 EUR.

Vienna Symphonic Library is presenting new rooms and spaces for Vienna MIR and Vienna Suite Convolution Reverb at the Winter NAMM show.

Vienna Symphonic IR Spaces

New Spaces for Vienna MIR and Vienna Suite

  • RoomPack 2 for Vienna MIR — The first package of additional rooms for Vienna MIR offers three recording studios, built and owned by the Austrian Public Broadcaster, ORF, where thousands of international artists, ensembles and orchestras have recorded. The “Grosser Sendesaal”, built in the 1930s, with its large stage and fixed leather chairs for the audience is a wonderful, vibrant place to record a symphonic orchestra. The dry “Studio 2″ with extremely precise sound localization has been used for radio drama as well as film scoring and big band recordings throughout the years, and it is still a sought-after venue for all kinds of contemporary music. “Studio 3″ can be thought of as the typical soundstage for any kind of acoustic and orchestral music – especially film scoring – with an outstanding evenness in its sonic imaging.
  • Exclusive Impulse Response Libraries for Vienna Suite Convolution Reverb by Inspired Acoustics and Numerical Sound — For the first time, the Vienna Symphonic Library web shop is offering download products by other developers. All three new products include collections of impulse responses that are exclusively available for Vienna Suite Convolution Reverb.
    • INSP:IR Impulse Library Vienna Edition — The INSP:IR Impulse Library Vienna Edition is a special edition of the multi-positional reverb sample library by Inspired Acoustics. It provides multiple stereo and true stereo impulse responses from ten renowned halls, some of them actually part of World Heritage, such as Béla Bartók National Hall, Liszt Academy, Esztergom Basilica, Notre Dame of Buda, Szeged Cathedral and others.
    • Full Orchestral Reverb & Timbral Impulses (FORTI) and Small Ensemble Reverb & Timbral Impulses (SERTI) — FORTI and SERTI are innovative all-new additions to Numerical Sound’s wide-ranging and lauded line of impulse libraries by Ernest Cholakis. They continue the excellence of collections like “Pure Space: Classical and Mystical Reverberation Impulses” – recently named by iconic engineer Bruce Botnick (The Doors, The Beach Boys, Jerry Goldsmith) as “the best impulses I ever heard” and compared to “the chamber” at Capitol Records. FORTI and SERTI offer custom Timbral Impulses specifically for the Vienna Instruments String Collections, the world’s first “Transparent Immediate Listener Targeting” (TILT) Filters, the first impulse-based Compartmentalized Reverb Collection for lush (FORTI) or intimate (SERTI) ambiences, as well as Ultra-Precision Instrumental Highpass Filters (FORTI) and Ultra-Precision Instrumental Bass Isolation Filters (SERTI).

RoomPack 2 is available to purchase for 195 EUR / $295 USD. The INSP:IR Impulse Library Vienna Edition is 199 EUR, FORTI and SERTI are 145 EUR each.

Numerical Sound releases Hollywood Impulse Responses

Numerical Sound Hollywood Impulse Responses

Numerical Sound has released Hollywood Impulse Responses, a 1.1 GB collection of reverberation impulses.

Advanced True High Definition Reverberation (Mac & PC) for producers, composers and musicians that for the first time is designed specifically for individual musical instruments and can even change the overall timbre of a track.

The Hollywood Impulse Responses (HIR) were inspired by the ambience of 20 major Hollywood blockbuster films released between 1977-2006. This selection of films was recorded in several famous recording studio’s sound stages and symphony halls.

Hollywood Impulse Responses features

  • Instruments. A new feature unique to HIR is the addition of 6 sets of RI’s that are high pass filtered at points of the frequency spectrum that match the range of acoustic instruments. These point are at the notes C2, G2, C3, G3, C4, and G4. This instrument designed approach offer much more sonic precision and clarity than any other currently available hardware or software reverberation. For example if you have a solo violin track the RI’s from the G3 set will exactly match the range of this instrument. C3 would work for the Viola and C2 for the Cello.
  • Timbre. The second feature unique to HIR is that the impulses were designed to change the perceived timbre of an individual instrument, ensemble or even the entire orchestra. The user can now adjust the tone of a track by selecting the appropriate Dark, Warm, Flat, Clear or Bright impulse when mixing the wet signal in with the dry. This dramatic effect cannot be matched by any kind of EQ.
  • Comprehensive. Each of the 20 RI’s (24 bit 44.1K) has 5 variations. Six separate sets of these for a total of 600 reverberation impulses.
  • Quality. Signal to Noise greater than 130 db. Stunning richness and density.
  • Versatility. This collection of reverberation impulses were developed to add authentic film ambience (dramatic and “larger than life”) to a users orchestral sample library or any other acoustic material such as drums, voice, keyboard or guitar tracks.

Hollywood Impulse Responses is now shipping for $129.95 USD.
