WOK has released Glimmerverb, a reverb effect, and Backplayer, an audio reverser effect for Windows.
Glimmerverb by WOK is an VST effect plugin for long reverb tails with shimmer effect.
It is made for really long and deep reverbs, and the pitchshifter in the reverb engine takes care of the shimmer effect sound.
BACKPLAYER plays back your audio with the touch a button. Up to 2 measures (8/4) can be fed into it. Audio is passed thru, pressing the button will start backwards playing immediately until you release it. Great for live effects. Plugin can be automated or controlled by MIDI CC.
Glimmerverb is available for 7.50 EUR. Backplayer is part of the Backpack bundle (incl. Instaback, Refo-D, and Tapebrake), priced at 5 EUR. All plug-ins are in Windows 32-bit VST format.

Audio Damage has announced the release of its Æverb Eurorack reverb module.
Audio Damage Æverb is a digital reverb running a feedback delay network algorithm (commonly called “FDN”). The algorithm consists of eight short delays running through eight low-pass filters, with the feedback paths summed in to a single source that provides both the output to the mix and the input to the delays themselves.
This type of reverb algorithm is generally considered “vintage” sounding, and is useful in electronic music for its thick, non-realistic behavior.
The Æverb module is available from Audio Damage’s preferred retail partners, priced at $189 USD / 179 EUR.

eaReckon has released version 1.3 of its EAReverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
EAReverb is a true stereo reverb unit. EAReverb is 100% algorithmic. It does not use any IR files. Early reflections are built “on-the-fly” depending on your own settings. The size parameter has an impact on early reflections and late reverb… Switching from a size to another will immediately put your music or sounds in a place that matches your choice.
Changes in EAReverb v1.3
- A new “Gate” module can be used to create a gated reverb as we were used to do it in the 80′s.
This module is a “sidechain” gate (its “Key Input” is used internally). The gate module affects the “wet” signal only but it is triggered by the “dry” one.
- “Limit” option. By disabling the internal limiter, EAReverb should be considered as a zero-latency effect by your DAW.
- “Boost” option. The Mix knob has been formerly thought to provide coherent results at 50% (when compared to a real environment). As per user request, the “Boost” option is a way to get the Mix knob behaving differently (more consistent output level).
EAReverb for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 129 EUR.

AudioEffects.com has announced Dereverberationizer, a software application for removing excess reverb, has enabled scientists to listen to the sound of the Big Bang at the dawn of time.
Published by The Sound Guy, Inc., Dereverberationizer removes any amount of reverberation, no matter how extreme. The program was originally designed for various common, everyday uses, such as removing reverb from lectures or concerts. However, CEO Earl Vickers stated, “We’re continually surprised by all the new ways people use the software. For example, in Switzerland, Dereverberationizer has helped improve the intelligibility of messages conveyed across the Alps via yodeling.”
Most significantly, scientists have recently used Dereverberationizer to listen to the sound of the Big Bang for the first time, free from the distortion that occurred as the cosmic background radiation reverberated throughout all of time and space. This discovery not only helps confirm the existence of gravitational waves, as predicted by Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, but it also provides direct, audible evidence of what happened in the first fraction of a second after the singularity.
As the video clearly shows, Dereverberationizer is the ultimate dereverberationizing software. However, if you decide to purchase Zynaptiq’s UNVEIL instead, you can get an additional discount off the already discounted price by using coupon code UNVEIL41 at https://secure.avangate.com/order/checkout.php?PRODS=4580618&QTY=1&CART=1&CARD=1. This offer is valid only on April 1, 2014.

Amazing Noises has released GliderVerb, a free Max for Live device.
GliderVerb is a “reverberator with glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.
The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances.
GliderVerb is available to download at no charge. Requires Live 9 and Max for Live.
