Magnus Ambience

Magnus at Smartelectronix has set free Ambience, a reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Ambience is a reverb that rivals the quality of the best commercial reverbs.

Ambience features

  • Separate dry/wet controls (set direct to -inf to use as a send effect.
  • Reverb time & room size parameters.
  • Predelay to set the amount of delay between the direct sound and the onset of the first echoes.
  • Width control for setting mono/wide stereo.
  • Quality knob for lower CPU usage (is less quality).
  • Variation button creates a new variant of the same room.
  • Damping section for bass and treble (control the decay time).
  • EQ section for filtering frequencies.
  • Gating allows the reverb to follow the dynamics of the audio input.
  • Hold button freezes current sound.
  • Diffusion for subtle effect on the sound. It is especially noticable with small room sizes.

A nag-free version of Ambience is available to download as a donationware effect plug-in for PC and Mac (VST/AU; 32bit/64bit).
