Audiority releases Polaris echo/reverb plugin


Audiority has announced the release of Polaris, a digital echo/reverb effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Audiority Polaris

Polaris is an echo/reverb plugin inspired by early hardware digital reverbs of the late 1970s and able to provide echo, ambience and reverb out of a single multitap delay line.
When hardware digital reverbs came out to the market they were really expensive.

Most manufacturers were already exploiting chains of comb and allpass filters (smoother reverbs, but expensive in both resources and chips), there were other techniques involving the use of a single multitap delay line to create a reasonable reverb while keeping the cost affordable.

That idea is so simple yet powerful: you mix a bunch of unmodulated taps (Early Reflections) with the remaining modulated taps (Diffusion) to create a cheap but convincing reverb.

We extended this technique by making the Echo tap recirculating with the Diffusion section, allowing longer reverb tails. Furthermore you can easily edit all taps to create your own room responses, resonant combs, Karplus-like tuned delay lines, Chorus, Flanging, Vibrato and much more.

Polaris features

  • Single Multitap Delay Line.
  • Early Reflections (8 Programmable Taps).
  • Diffusion (16 Programmable Modulated Taps).
  • Echo (Ms, Sync, Tuned).
  • Echo Modulation.
  • LFO (Sin/Tri/Rnd – Hz, Sync).
  • VST, AU and AAX (32/64bit).
  • OSX and Windows.

Polaris is available for the introductory price of 35 EUR (regular 45 EUR).
