ValhallaRoom is a versatile, true stereo algorithmic reverb

March 24, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on ValhallaRoom is a versatile, true stereo algorithmic reverb 

An algorithmic vision of perfection and precision. It’s Grade A class, Number One in its division.

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. 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.

* 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:

o Large Room – designed to emulate big rooms with a wide spatial impression, with smooth “detuning” modulation

o Medium Room – sparser than Large Room, with a more random modulation

o Bright Room – a lush, shinier-than-life reverb, with deep modulation and a somewhat slower attack

o Large Chamber – a smooth decay with consistent high echo density and subtle detuning modulation

ValhallaRoom has been designed from a psychoacoustic perspective. Instead of creating a simplified physical model of a simplified physical space, VRoom generates early and late acoustic energy that provides the spatial and phase cues needed to create an “idealized” room impression.”

micronaut – experiment four

March 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on micronaut – experiment four 

Cranada11 provides another nice video featuring among other things the Boss reverb:

The very definition of getting carried away. I bought a Boss RRV-10 reverb last night, and just wanted to test it out to make sure it was all working, and 5 hours later, here we are.

This piece is done with no sequencing at all. A Max patch does the dirty work, and everything you hear except the snare drum is coming from the hardware synths, six of ’em. I’m arranging things by turning specific metro objects on and off in Max via the Korg nanoControl; they’re all quantized to the Global Clock.

Free reverb for Windows

March 6, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Free reverb for Windows 

Xhip Effects R2, an updated version of the free effects bundle for Windows, is now available.

These effect plugins were originally created for use with Xhip, the “xxx-xated xound xource”. The effects were implemented as external plugins, though, for greater versatility.

New in R2:

  • mDelay parameters are smoothed.
  • Limiter has activity/clipping LEDs added.
  • Small graphical changes, bg color adjusted, shaded slider.
  • Several small bugs fixed.

Pricing and Availability

Xhip effects R2 for Windows (VST) are available now as a free download.

eaReckon EAReverb (Reverb VST Plugin)

January 28, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on eaReckon EAReverb (Reverb VST Plugin) 

EAReverb (Earthy Algorithmic Reverb) – “Open the doors to YOUR world”
Available now! – http://www.eareckon.com

I have used the EAReverb with vocals, drums, guitars and wind instruments (WIVI band), yet I could remarkably reproduce realistic and natural sounding Rooms, set just the way the early reflections in great detail to make the EAReverb to a very special space simulator, we can also dispense entirely with the reverberation room shape and only consist of space, place an X in the possible mix of individual instruments in the virtual space to position accurately.
The EAReverb does a good job and produces a dense, warm reverb, the service is ideal for an experiment, but also has some very useful Presets included for direct use

Eventide Space – Sneak Peak

January 15, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Eventide Space – Sneak Peak 

Here’s a nice one for you. Sneak peak of the new Eventide “Space” Reverb stompbox. Running a Roland TR-808 and TB-303 through some of spatial effects including basic reverbs, delays and unique combination effects.

“Reverb” seems a bit too vanilla to describe a box from Eventide. Regarded as one of the best hardware effects processors ever, Eventide’s brilliant sounds have sadly been out of reach to most musicians. Eventide’s new stompboxes finally make those effects portable and affordable. The latest is Space.

  • Room, plate, spring, hall.
  • Special effects / combo effects: Shimmer, ModEchoVerb, DualVerb, Blackhole, MangledVerb, TremoloVerb, DynaVerb
  • Mono and stereo operation.
  • Tap tempo, MIDI clock sync. (Yes, that’s right – a tempo syncable reverb.)
  • Instant program change, which makes this ideal for live performance use in a way many reverbs, hardware or software, aren’t.
  • True analog bypass.
  • Real-time controls – ten knobs, MIDI, expression pedal, metal footswitches, and a programmable “HotSwitch.”
  • USB MIDI, USB2 software upgrades, and MIDI in, out/thru. Expression pedal, aux switch.

Free reverb plug-in from Madrona Labs

December 25, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Free reverb plug-in from Madrona Labs 

Madrona Labs has a Christmas present for Mac-based musicians – a free reverb plugin:

It’s damp and chilly, and I hear the gray pitter patter of endless rain. Looking out my window I see gray sky, gray water, gray trees and gray clouds. That’s right, it’s Christmas in Seattle.
Because of your support of Aalto these past few months, I can now work full time to bring you more software and hardware to make music with. And that is something I am very thankful for. I am very excited about what we will have to offer this coming year: Aalto for Windows, the Soundplane A, and more software instruments that are even farther off the beaten path.

As a small way to say thanks, today I’m releasing Aaltoverb for Mac OS X. Aaltoverb is just the reverb section from Aalto, packaged up as its own plugin and with mix and brightness knobs added. It won’t replace your ValhallaShimmer, but it is easy on the CPU and on the eyes, and I hope it makes a nice addition to your box of colors.

Download it here (.dmg).

Aaltoverb is an Audio Unit plugin. It requires an Intel processor of speediness 1.6 GHz or higher, and Mac OS of versioniness 10.5 or higher.

Piano Verb Xmas greetings

December 7, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Piano Verb Xmas greetings 

Plug-in developers PSP have re-released their freeware PianoVerb plug-in updated to work with all the most recent operating systems. You will need to register the plug-in to use it, but it is still absolutely free. Here’s what PSP has to say about it:

“PSP PianoVerb reproduces special kind of reverberation originally provided by piano strings. It generates reverberation using twelve string operators with adjustable damping and decay time. Each of them is tuned to a particular note starting from A(55Hz) to a G#(103.8Hz). The PSP PianoVerb string system can be transposed in the range of +-24 semitones, tuned within a range of +-100 cents and be detuned as well. Transposing to lower octaves produces a bigger and less resonant sound similar to traditional reverbs, while in turn transposing to higher octaves produces a very bright harp-like effect.”
