Valhalla DSP ValhallaRoom

Valhalla DSP has released version 1.0.6 of ValhallaRoom, a versatile, true stereo algorithmic reverb plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Sounds range from tight ambiences and rooms, through traditional hall and plate sounds, all the way up to vast modulated spaces. The algorithm designs have been influenced by some of the “classic” room simulation boxes, as well as state of the art modern theory.

Changes in ValhallRoom v1.0.6

  • Dark Room – a new reverb mode added to V1.0.6. A hybrid between the grungy early digital reverbs and the modern algorithms found in ValhallaRoom, with reduced high frequency content, noisy yet lush randomized modulation, a HUGE spatial image, echo density ranging from grungy to dense while retaining clarity, and tons of mojo.
  • Some bug fixes.

ValhallaRoom is available to purchase for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS), priced at $50 USD.

Valhalla DSP ValhallaRoom

Valhalla DSP has released version 1.0.4 of ValhallaRoom, a true stereo algorithmic reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

ValhallaRoom is a versatile, true stereo algorithmic reverb. It features several original reverberation algorithms and has been designed from the ground up to produce a wide range of natural reverberation sounds.

Changes in ValhallaRoom v1.0.4

  • Windows RTAS format. ValhallaRoom is now available in all major formats for PC (VST32/VST64/RTAS) and OSX (AU/AU64/VST/RTAS).
  • Mix lock functionality. The red “MIX” label above the Mix slider is clickable. Clicking on the Mix label allows the user to lock/unlock the Mix value, so that a given mix level can be retained while browsing through presets.
  • Added red triangles to the right of the current preset to allow the user to quickly scroll through presets.
  • New Cathedral presets, based on acoustic measurements of Italian cathedrals (and one German cathedral).

ValhallaRoom is available to purchase for $50 USD.

Valhalla DSP ValhallaRoom

Valhalla DSP has announced the release of ValhallaRoom, a versatile, true stereo algorithmic reverb.

It features several original reverberation algorithms and has been designed from the ground up to produce a wide range of natural reverberation sounds. Sounds range from tight ambiences and rooms, through traditional hall and plate sounds, all the way up to vast modulated spaces. The algorithm designs have been influenced by some of the “classic” room simulation boxes, as well as state of the art modern theory.

ValhallaRoom features

  • Unique Early reverb section allows user to dial in subtle and short bursts of early reverberation energy, as well as gated reverbs up to 1 second in length.
  • The Late section produces natural reverb decays ranging from 0.1 seconds to 100 seconds. The decay can be controlled in 3 adjustable frequency bands.
  • Both Early and Late reverb sections have adjustable modulation, to produce sounds ranging from lush chorusing, to subtle and natural long decays.
  • ValhallaRoom is true stereo. The Early and Late reverb sections are both stereo-in, stereo-out. The spread of energy between the stereo channels can be controlled over time, which helps preserve the input spatial image.
  • The GUI has been designed for easy navigation, and is inspired by Joseph Müller-Brockmann, NASA control panels, and Sesame Street.
  • A comprehensive preset browser makes saving, recalling and sharing settings easy.
  • Four original reverberation algorithms:
    • Large Room – designed to emulate big rooms with a wide spatial impression, with smooth “detuning” modulation
    • Medium Room – sparser than Large Room, with a more random modulation
    • Bright Room – a lush, shinier-than-life reverb, with deep modulation and a somewhat slower attack
    • Large Chamber – a smooth decay with consistent high echo density and subtle detuning modulation

ValhallaRoom is currently available to purchase for Mac OSX (AU/AU64/VST/RTAS) for $50 USD. A Windows version is coming soon.

Valhalla DSP has announced ValhallaRoom, a reverb effect plug-in.

The goal of ValhallaRoom is to be a useful “workhorse” reverb, for subtle drum rooms that can be felt more than heard, lush halls, dense plates, and big ambient decays. The algorithm designs have been influenced by some of the “classic” room simulation boxes, as well as state of the art modern theory.

ValhallaShimmer features

  • By adjusting the Feedback, Diffusion and Size controls, the attack, sustain and decay of the reverb signal can be fine tuned.
  • The modulation controls can be set to produce subtle mode thickening, glistening string ensemble-esque decays, and the distinctive random modulation of the older Lexicon hall algorithms.
  • Two tone controls and the Color Mode selector allow the timbre to be adjusted from bright and glistening to a more natural dark decay, similar to that produced by air absorption in large spaces.
  • 5 pitch shift modes:
    • Single, where the feedback is shifted up or down by the Shift value.
    • Dual, where the feedback is shifted both up and down (in parallel) by the Shift value.
    • SingleReverse, where each grain is reversed before it is pitch shifted. This results in a smoother pitch shifting sound than the Single mode.
    • DualReverse. Similar to the Dual mode, but with reversed grains, for a smoother pitch shifting sound.
    • Bypass, which turns off the pitch shifting (useful for “standard” reverb sounds).
  • By setting the Shift amount to +12 semitones, and the Feedback to 0.5 or greater, the classic “shimmer” sound is produced, as heard on Eno / Lanois productions for U2 and others. A wide variety of other sounds can be created by the algorithm, ranging from spring-esque reverbs to “reverse” reverbs, to glistening pitch shifted pads that are usually associated with high end hardware processors.
  • ValhallaShimmer has been designed to be tweaked in real time. All of the sliders have a smoothed response, to avoid clicks when changing settings or automating the controls. At the same time, the algorithm has been highly optimized, so you get a huge reverb sound without straining your CPU.
  • The algorithms in ValhallaShimmer are the results of over a decade of research into both reverberation algorithms and pitch shift algorithms.

ValhallaShimmer is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for $50 USD. A Windows version is coming soon.

Valhalla DSP announces ValhallaShimmer, algorithmic reverberation plugin

Valhalla DSP has announced ValhallaShimmer, an algorithmic reverberation plug-in designed to produce big sounds, from concert halls, to the Taj Mahal, to the halls of Valhalla.

Valhalla DSP announces ValhallaShimmer

ValhallaShimmer is a reverberator, tuned for emulating large spaces and big ambiances. Lots of modulation on tap. Minimal yet powerful controls, to allow the user to tune the attack, sustain, decay and color of the reverberation, with the results ranging from chorusing and short rooms to concert halls, to cathedrals, to near-infinite reverbs.

It also features the ability to pitch shift the reverb feedback, to obtain the “shimmer” sound heard on the Eno / Lanois productions for U2 and others, as well as a variety of beautiful harmonic washes.

I plan on releasing the OSX versions of the plugin (VST/AU/RTAS) in the next week or two, with the Windows version to follow shortly thereafter. Price will be announced when the demo is released and the plugin is offered for sale.
