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.
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.
PSP Audioware has released PSP SpringBox, a spring reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
PSP SpringBox is an emulation of a hardware spring reverberator (VST, AAX and RTAS for Windows; AudioUnit, VST, AAX and RTAS for Mac OSX). It recreates several features typical of a spring reverb, such as a convincing “boing” on transients and a repeatable resonating musical character with an adjustable presence.
A selection of configurations from two to six springs total is provided, as well as the ability to set stereo spread and pan/balance configured to suit various mix setups – from a typical guitar reverb to a creative uses as a send reverb in the mix. Thanks to PSP SpringBox’s two channel A and B settings setup and range of presets operation is fast and easy.
PSP SpringBox is available to purchase for the introductory price of $49 USD until May 1st, 2013 (regular $69 USD). Prices ex. VAT.
Exponential Audio has released version 1.2 of its PhoenixVerb and R2 reverb effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.
The long wait for 64-bit Windows code is over. PhoenixVerb and R2 now support 64-bit Windows VST and Windows AAX. There are many other improvements–a better preset loader, faster startup, better performance.
If you’re already an owner, get to the download page and get your update. If you’d like to try them out, go to the demo pages and get a new 21-day demo.
Changes in PhoenixVerb / R2 v1.2
64-bit Windows VST.
Windows AAX (32-bit).
Mac and Windows versions and features are now synchronized, with identical features between both.
Updated 64-bit AAX. Another release will be needed when ProTools 11 ships (due to digital signing), but current version will work well for any PT11 testers.
Fixed a problem in the graphics library that could cause crashes for Cubase and Studio One (possibly other Windows DAWs).
Plugin scanning and launch are now faster.
Added a Cancel button to preset menu.
Changing a keyword no longer automatically loads a preset from the new keyword. No preset is loaded until the user selects one.
Fixed a bug that appeared in Windows. There were a few value gaps in setting output gain parameters.
Fixed a problem in automation. ‘Touch’ style automation was a fight between original knob position and the desired position. This was also a minor problem in other forms of automation, but was much less noticeable.
Dialed back the GUI color intensity by a couple of notches.
Completely rewrote the preset loader in the GUI. The popup menu no longer goes from the top of the screen to the bottom for large lists. The new compact view actually shows many more presets at once. In addition, the preset list will no longer show up behind the main GUI in those cases where it was a problem.
As part of the new preset loader, there is now subtle background coloring that helps to group presets that are variants of a basic preset ( Dark, Narr, etc).
Defer loading graphics until a UI is opened. This makes load quicker for jobs in which the UI is normally closed.
Fixed a longstanding minor bug that sometimes corrupted the keyword list when deleting a user preset.
Fixed a problem that appeared in Digital Performer (and probably other DAWs) in which the reverb tail would stop as soon a playback stopped. Reverb tails now continue after motion stops.
Considerable under-the-hood work for stability and teensy performance improvements.
PhoenixVerb and R2 are available to purchase for $199 USD and $299 USD respectively. A bundle of both is $449 USD.
