Plugin Boutique has announced a 24-hour sale on TrueVerb, a reverb effect plug-in from Waves.
For 24 hours only we are offering Waves TrueVerb for a massive 80% off.
Featuring a flexible graphic interface and powerful editing parameters, TrueVerb combines reverb with an Early Reflections simulator to create extraordinarily natural-sounding virtual acoustic spaces.
- Thru and send modes.
- Independent and linked distance and reverb modes.
- Time and frequency response graphic interface.
The sale ends August 18th, 2014.

Voxengo has updated Marvel GEQ to version 1.3, MSED to version 2.7 and OldSkoolVerb to version 2.3, introducing VST3 support for the these free effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.
Marvel GEQ is a linear-phase 16-band graphic equalizer AU and VST plugin with multi-channel operation support (supporting up to 8 input/output channels, audio host application-dependent) for professional music production applications. Marvel GEQ offers extensive internal channel routing capabilities, and supports mid/side channel processing.
MSED is a professional audio encoder-decoder plug-in for mid-side processing which is able to encode (split) the incoming stereo signal into two components: mid-side pair, and vice versa: decode mid-side signal pair into stereo signal.
OldSkoolVerb is a freeware algorithmic reverberation AU and VST plug-in for professional music production applications. This plug-in implements a kind of “classic” stereo reverb algorithm which is technically simple yet optimal. It also produces a very clear spatial image that blends well with the mix.
The plug-ins are available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Soundsdivine has announced the release of Creative Impulses, a collection of impulse responses.
A small collection of 64 unique stereo impulse responses made using a range of hardware reverbs in combination with a eurorack modular system.
All IRs are 24bit / 96kHz in .wav format.
The library is available for purchase for 9 EUR. Requires a convolution reverb plug-in.
Creative Impulses are now included with MM+ instrument. Previous customers of MM+ can get a free copy of impulse library.

iMusicAlbum has announced the release of AltiSpace, a convolution reverb for iPad and iPhone.
The realistic sound of famous reverb equipment for your iPad and iPhone! Includes a large built-in library of the highest quality reverb impulses taken from actual devices and the possibility to upload your own reverb space impulses. Intuitive and compact user interface for maximum ease and efficiency.
What is the convolution reverb?
Briefly, convolution reverb is based on a process that digitally ‘captures’ the reverb characteristics of another reverb effects unit or the reverb response of a real acoustic space. It is based on the mathematical convolution operation, and uses a pre-recorded audio sample of the impulse response of the device or space being modeled. The process of convolution multiplies each sample of the audio to be processed (reverberated) with the samples in the impulse response file.
- High-quality, fast convolution algorithm.
- Parametric equaliser with high and low pass filters.
- Impulse response envelope editor with “reverse” function.
- Amplitude and frequence modulator.
- Stereo width control.
- Built-in library that contains more than 200 impulse responses from famous analogue and digital reverbs.
- Upload additional impulse responses in different audio formats.
- Preset hotkeys, possibility to save current sample and its params.
The app is available for purchase for $5.99 USD.

stw-audio has announced the release of REFLEX+, a delay algorithm based echo/reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
REFLEX+ is capable of generating huge spaces, short rooms, or chorus like modulations through a cascade of regenerating delays.
It’s sound is a mixture of straight stereo delays followed by a dense cloud of reflections. It achieves a huge and spacey wideness with a decent amount of the two modulation sources.
- Short reflections up to endless reverberation.
- Delay/Reverb Modulation.
- 4 LFO modulation shapes.
- 6/18dB/oct Hi & Lopass filter.
- 5 Delay/Reverb algorithms.
REFLEX+ for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 29 EUR.

PerforModule has announced the release of a free MultiBand Reverb for Ableton Live.
A reverb effect rack sending different calibrated reverb algorithms to the lows, mids, and highs. The lengths, widths, and shapes of each reverb chain are scaled compared to each other leading to very complex, smooth and lush sound which can be used from very short ambience “small box” reverbs to extremely long-tailed hall reverbs, and everything in between. The tone can be altered carefully with just a few macro controls to sculpt the sound with great versatility and ease.
Add in Low, Mid, or High reverberation, change the room size and tightness, and alter the tone with the cutoff and diffusion knobs.
The effect rack is a free download from PerforModule. Requires Ableton Live 9.

Audio Ease has updated its Altiverb reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac to version 7.2.2.
Altiverb 7 is the industry standard convolution reverb plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows. It uses top quality samples of real spaces to create reverb, ranging from Sydney Opera House to the cockpit of a Jumbo Jet.
Altiverb 7 is efficient on the cpu, offers many parameters to tweak reverb, is total recall automatable, and has 64 bit support. Every month Altiverb 7 users receive new impulse responses for free.
Changes in Altiverb v7.2.2
- AAX: AudioSuite delay removed when selecting tracks with different track counts.
- VST: Remembering of user IRs is working now.
- Win: Favorites are remembered now.
- AAX: Removed faulty AAX DSP versions in Altiverb in Pro Tools (Altiverb AAX DSP is not ready yet).
- VST: Better handling of speaker arrangements.
- OS X: DP no longer crashes when editing/showing IR automation in track.
- OS X: Installer improvement regarding a chmod.
- OS X: SSE version logging.
- Live: Short mute on stop removed.
- Removed logging of OpenGL errors.
- Some small optimizations in: resampler & hi-lores switch.
- Some other small improvements.
Altiverb is available for purchase for 499 EUR (Regular) / 849 EUR (XL). Prices excl. taxes.
