PSP Audioware has released version 1.1.0 of PSP 2445, a reverb processor plugin inspired by the EMT 244 and the EMT 245, two legendary early digital age reverberators. The update adds the possibility to control the reverberator’s modulation depth.
Most algorithmic reverberators have some inherent modulation—sometimes noticeable, sometimes not. This is because the complexity of algorithmic reverbs is considerably simplified from an actual studio or hall environment. This is reflected in the number of resonances, or the pattern and mechanical character, of reverb tail reflections. To deal with these limitations, modulation is added to spread resonances and smooth out a tail pattern. Sometimes you may want this modulation to be obvious on tracks, other times you may not, so PSP provide a parameter that will lessen or exaggerate the modulation in PSP 2445.
The lower the modulation the more synthetic, resonant and grainy the reverb is however chorusing is less noticeable. The higher the modulation level is set the less periodic the reverb tail is and is more blurred at the expanse of exaggerated chorusing effects.
PSP 2445 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for the introductory price of $99 USD until March 1st, 2016 (regular $129 USD). Prices ex. VAT.
