Acon Digital has released Verberate, an algorithmic reverb plug-in that simulates real acoustical spaces with a high degree of realism.
Several conventional building blocks in traditional digital reverb design have been replaced by novel methods that allow Verberate to produce convincing early reflections as well as the dense reverberation tails that characterize impulse response measurements of real acoustical spaces. These are important factors for a clean and unobtrusive sonic quality and a reverb that blends seamlessly into a mix.
Although currently available convolution based reverbs do offer a high degree of realism, this comes at the expense of flexibility and a high CPU consumption. Verberate additionally offers the flexibility and tweaking possibilities of algorithmic reverbs as well as a reduced CPU usage compared to convolution reverbs.
A large catalog of factory presets is delivered with Verberate and a clear and to-the-point graphical user interface simplifies the search for a specific reverb quality.
- Realistic simulation of real acoustical spaces.
- True stereo processing.
- Uncluttered user interface.
- Sensible set of parameters.
- Low CPU usage compared to convolution reverbs.
Acon Digital Verberate is available for both Windows and Mac OS X for $99.90 at acondigital.com. Both 32- and 64-bit versions are available, and the plug-in formats VST and Audio Units (OS X only) are supported.
