Madrona Labs has announced the release of Aaltoverb, a new reverb effect plugin that allows you to smoothly change the size of the virtual space that the sound is reverberating in.

Aaltoverb is a reverberator designed with a focus on live performance and smooth tweakability. Any of its controls, including the reverb size, can be adjusted without making clicks. This feature particularly shines in a live performance setup. Instead of offering different reverb algorithms in a menu, Aaltoverb’s size dial is intended to allow a user to smoothly tune between different kinds of spaces—from giant rooms, to small natural chambers, to tiny artificial resonators.

Aaltoverb’s tone dial is another performance feature that is designed to hide complexity behind a simple interface. Acting more like a high fidelity version of the isolator on a DJ mixer than a typical EQ, the tone dial enables sweeping through a whole range of tonal curves from muffled to completely flat to sizzling highs.

Aaltoverb is available for $35 USD. The plugin comes in 64-bit VST3 and AU for Windows and macOS.
